Shiny golden pour, small foamy white head that recedes quickly.
Smells really nice, sweet bubblegum fruitiness, with apple, cherry plum, pear and some quince shining. Nice floral notes and lots of honey, spicy peppery yeasts, herbs, really fresh, almost like a saison.
So tasty, lots of orchard fruit and honey (as if it was added). Lots of apple, pear, quince, faint persimmon, apricot with a bit of alcohol and glazed in tons of spicy acacia honey. Yeasts are soft, but really spicy, with big coriander (obviously), pepper, lemongrass, clove. Some nice hop, a bit minty too in the finish, with a mild bitterness and a long spicy finish.
Aftertaste is really rich, lots of spices, lingering fruit and a bit of sweetness too. Alcohol too, but entirely bearable. Medium body and carbonation.
This is really so much better than many beers in this style from Belgium. Really authentic-feeling, really tasty. Really cool.

2012 Vintage (750ml) from Brewdog's Online Shop:
Another brilliant beer from AleSmith, the quality really shows through with this one and it is remarkably easy to drink despite the fact it comes in at 11% abv. and is packed with flavour. It's more fruity than I was expecting but the balance is great and the carbonation is perfect, helping the beer down far too easily for the strength of the beer. Simply put, this one is a must try for any beer fan and one that was well worth the very expensive price tag - definitely a beer that has aged well since I picked it up a couple of years ago.
