Pours a dense golden orange with a lingering white head and some lacing.
Has a very fruity nose. Apricots, banana, pineapple. Lots of herbal and spicey notes and belgian yeast. Very enticing.
Taste has quite a bit of belgian yeast and spice. Coriander & clove. Some fruitiness as described in the aroma and honey for a welcome sweetness and an underlying hop presence all makes for a well balanced and exceptional tasting beer.
Medium to full body with a long dry finish with just a bit of both the sweetness and hop bitterness carrying through. Smooth with the perfect carbonation and plenty of warming alcohol. Really enjoying sipping on this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a chimay chalice, color is dense straw with a light frothy head that dissipates quickly.

Smell is of yeast, light ester, bananas cloves, very feint fruitiness and some light malt notes.

Taste is a mixture of yeasty fruitiness, apricots, bananas, esters hints of orange.

Mouthfeel is slightly strong on the tongue but cleans nicely for a strong brew.

Overall, this is a great brew, perfect example of the style nice off yeast flavors and feint alcohol undertones.
