Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Murky sunburnt lemondrop yellow, a foamy white head slowly calms to a frothy film. Random foamy lacing.

Aroma: Lots of bubblegum sweetness and yeast. Some banana and fruit sweetness.

Taste: Very much like the aroma, a banana and bubblegum backbone hold up most of the ale. A dry finish that has a bit of an alcoholic edge.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, dry.

Overall: A bit too heavy for my liking but certainly flavorful in the true Belgian way.

Starts out with a big head that lasts and sticks to the glass. Cloudy bright yellow.

Nose is kind of like wheat ale. Banana and spicy.

Taste is strong Belgian hops and malt. Spice, banana and orange peel.

Mouthfeel is pretty carbonated but smooth on the tongue. Plenty of alcohol in this one too.

750ml bottle into stemmed tulip glass.

A- Poured a nice golden orange color, bright despite the bit of yeast sediment that made its way into the glass. A fluffy white head, almost 2f, holds up and leaves heavy lacing, soap-like.
Lots of tiny bubbles.

S- Candied peaches, yeast, some citrus. Dry, very pleasant.

T- Belgian style yeast, some candy sweets, peach, lemon.

M- Seriously carbonated to full feel level. Tingly. Not as tart as others in the style. Dry, fruity finish.

O- The yeast strain drives this brew nicely. Flavorful and drinkable, a smooth 9.5% abv.
