Traditional looking Belgian. Golden straw in color, but unfiltered so it's hazy and full of particulates. A bright thick white head sits up top.

The nose is happy. Cloves and coriander dance with orange peel.

The mouth is happy too. Those same spices greet the tongue, along with that same orange peel, and some peppery notes.

Mouthfeel is fantastic. It's crisp and refreshing, almost cleansing. Despite all the spices, it's a gentle feeling that seemingly cleans your palate.

A simple beer to drink. It tastes good and provides a crisp feeling as it goes down. Despite the spices and high alcohol, there's no burning whatsover, it actually seems to cool you. Would make a great beer for warm or cold weather.

This is not my type of beer, but when I saw it and had read so many positive reviews I decided to give it a try. Comes packaged in a beautiful bottle with champagne style capping. Pours tremendously cloudy with very unsubtle sunset colors. The suggested serving glass call for a wide-mouth glass, (I used a red wine glass) upon pouring a swelling of orange, berries and some serious alcohol infused my nostrils. This beer taste like a summer beer, overloaded with sweetly hops that balance each other. This beer almost transcends beer at its strangest and purest points. A serious beer, but is it really a beer; or should it be in its own category?
