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

A- Hazy grapefruit juice color with rocky white head.
S- Yeasty tart aroma I associate with Belgian ales... really no better way to describe it.
T- A slightly citric sweetness immediately rolls over the tongue. Some spice (perhaps coriander?) but nothing overpowering. Definite biting esters that suggest a warm fermentation. Some alcohol warmth with a tart finish. Very well balanced; similar to a Belgian Strong Ale before the tart, slightly earthy finish.
M- Very effervescent; a bit too overcarbonated for my taste but typical for a bottle-conditioned Belgian.
D- Can definitely tell it's in the 7-8% ABV range, but the light color and effervescence leaves it deceptively drinkable.
Overall: This reminded me of the farmhouse cousin of Delirium Tremens.
It has the same (relatively) light feel, but a little more spice and earthiness that makes it a great introduction to the style for those who are scared off by a strong "horse blanket" characteristic. Definitely recommended.
