On tap at Tj's the other night.

The beer pours a faily pale, golden amber color with fairly good head retention and light lacing. The nose is quite exotic and attractive, as I get considerable tropical fruit, orange citrus, marachino cherry, vanilla, honey and light coconut. The flavor profile replicates the nose, though I thought the sweetness a bit much. The vanilla and honey really dominated the palate, and while there's some decent underlying bitterness that helps to balance that sweetness, ultimately it's not enough. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to fairly full, with a long, rich, sweet finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, though ultimately the sweetness and high abv. wear out the palate a bit.

A solid beer, no doubt, but it's hard to imagine ever drinking more than one snifter or tulip glass of this.

2010 vintage. Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours a hazy honey color with a 2" frothy white head. Thick wall lacing that resides quickly.

S- very sweet honey and fruits, lemon, coriander and other spices.

T- sweet honey, lemon and oranges, coriander and spices, and some bitter citrus zest.

M- medium body and carbonation. Fairly effervescent and crisp.

O- very nice beer, more sweet than most Belgian pales but still has some crisp bitterness to it.
