huge,lingering, foamy white head. lightly carbonated with a yellow/green color. looks sexy in my Houblon Chouffe ipa tripel flute. Has the per verbal "funk" smell, with cloves and "spices". Some alcoholic comes through too. Great flavor for this style. Banana candy, sour mash, and lemons dominate. Great balance and carbonation. Drinks all too well.

Citrusy with hints of cloves and banana. Booze becomes more apparent as it warms. Very dry finish. Decent beer, reminds me of Duvel.

12oz : tulip

Pours a hazy golden with some yeast particles floating throughout. Thick, foamy white head with good retention.

Spicy, phenolic yeast notes in both the aroma and taste. Alcohol comes through just a bit in the taste.

Medium-full body with foamy carbonation.

A well done saison, alcohol came through a bit more than I prefer, but still quite tasty.
