Hazy pour with a formidable off-white head. Clean, crisp grain smell dominates the nose and is complemented by an interesting cinnamon-like spiciness. Those scents carry over nicely to the taste, which is characterized by a good combination of sweet, crisp grains and a spicy bite of clove. Eventually fades to a warm finish. Good, clean mouthfeel. Once the novelty of this refreshing offering wears, you are left with a good but not great pale ale.

This beer oured a nice peach color with cotton candy lite fluffy head. The head lasted the whole glass, including a 2nd pour to finish off the bomber size bottle. The aromas of spring flowers hit my nose and filled my head before I could take a sip. While, at first, I didn't "get" the Belgian beer style, I continue to drink them, hitting on some good ones and gaining appreciation for the bolder ones. This beer would be the perfect introduction to the Belgian beers as it is not overshelming, yet is very complex

The flavors consisted of fruity, tropical flavors like bannana, pomegranade, pears and figs, it had a smooth and easy drinking texture that finished with a nice hop dry feel with some sweetness around the edges, like a nice dessert wine. This was served rather cold from my fridge and as the glass warmed, all of the above aromas and flavors grew until the last sip.

This beer is alive inside! After popping the cork and pouring into the glass, the head is alive! Frothyness lasted quite some time until it rested. The beer is a hazy golden colour, tastes of citrus come to the palate. After the beer warms close to room temp, there are hints of mild hoppiness. Overall a pleasant, refreshing brew to savor!
