Many thanks to weefishheads for sharing this. It was a large, nicely decorated 750ml bottle. About as attractive an item can be with horny painted on it. Poured, it shone pale yellow, a haze due to the sediment suspended in it. A very slight wisp of foam graced the top, but it was brief.
The aroma was ripe of apples and orchard. Yeast contributed greatly to the smells, though it was not overwhelming.
The taste was marvelous. mild pale malts, gala apple yeast and delicate spice combine to create a very subtle and pleasing drink. The near puree of sediment brush across your tongue as you drink, enhancing the experience greatly, and further suggesting fresh pressed apples.
Though a strong Belgian, there were not overtly strong flavors or sensations. It came across as a much lighter beer, and I was surprised to learn it was so highly alcoholic. I can't wait for next thanksgiving to share this at the table.

This was deceptively strong.
It pours a clear golden color. There’s a light aroma with a bit of an estery aroma to it. I found it sweetly flavored with an orange blossom characteristic shining through. I had enjoyed it thoroughly, felt it afterwards!

On tap at the Blind Lady Alehouse on the 4th of July in San Diego.
Appearance: Excellent clarity in the amber body. Small but semi-durable white head. Head leaves some sticky streaks and spots on the glass.
Aroma: Sweet biscuits, yeast and faint tropical notes.
Flavor: Fruity, slightly tart, mildly bitter. Banana and clove evident, as is the higher ABV. Seemed to have a narrow tempeature range for optimal flavor and balance. Moderate complexity. Relatively good finish and aftertaste.
Feel: Light-medium body with medium+ carbonation. ABV mostly evident.
O: true Belgian style and quality.
Serving type: on-tap
