A: a slightly hazy golden beer with a creamy somewhat rocky white head, about a finger thick with good retention.
S: Peppery phenols and orange esters at moderate levels with the pepper note being a bit stronger than the fruit. There is a little bit of that floral hops aroma that combines with the alcohol to give it a low perfumey note. There is a moderately-low Pilsner malt aroma as well.
T: The taste is mostly spicey with some fruit, again peppery but a bit more lemon than orange for the fruit flavors. The hops seem to be giving it the citrus flavors but not that American style hops flavor. There is a touch of sweetness while the hops bitterness comes in at a moderate level making for a beer with a slight bitter balance. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is of citrus and a short lived hops bitterness. The spice sometimes seems a little clove-like but mostly black pepper.
M: Medium-light bodied with a moderately-high level of carbonation.
O: A very peppery Belgian Ale with a nice citrus influence.

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is hazy gold color with bleached white minimal head after even a fairly aggressive pour.
Aroma is mild with bready yeast, some sweet malt and some spicy and earthy hops.
First sip reveals an average to light body with fine rolling carbonation.
Flavor is similar to the nose with some caramel malt and a little musty funk mixed in for fun.
The hops give the same earthy and spicy notes as he nose advertised, I dont get any booze which is nice since it is a bigger beer.
Very easy to drink and worth trying as it is interesting and fairly complex without being messy.
