From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #71 (December 2012):

Could be one of the most interesting and even complex beers we have had this year. This is a thinking person’s brew, for the true beer geek and will want to decipher every sip. One thing this ale is crying for is to be paired with some stinky cheese. Morbier comes to mind with some marmalade on the side.

STYLE: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
ABV: 8.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Perfect clarity, golden hue, amazing head

SMELL: Dragon fruit, chalky yeast, taffy, passion fruit, juicy fruit, doughy bread, floral, clementines, spicy, ester

TASTE: Very crisp, lighter body, yeast, orange pith, deep breadiness, chalky, salty, golden raisins, mildly spicy, mild tartness, gummy, pepper jelly, quite warming, phenolic, long dry finish

02/23/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. After a logistical mix up, I'm finally in front of a glass of his fine, fine brew. A long time fan of both Ommegang & Duval brands this collaboration doesn't disappoint. Bready aromas give way to slight bite that could be alcohol & lemon or vice-verse. It is so subtle it's hard to tell. Another masterful brew but if you don't appreciate a dry finish this might not be for you. Me? I'm a fan.
