Shipped to me by Sulldaddy in a champagne-size bottle, it pours a pale yellow, chilled into a tulip glass with some haze. The head towers above, white, loose, but clingy and spongy. Aroma is slightly fruity (white grapes and lemon) with a nice amount of cloves or nutmeg as well that really spices it up. Just a twinge of alcohol also hits my nose along with possibly some slight yeast. Flavor sips at first quite sweet with reminders of pears along with some citrus fruit and some spice. Alcohol quickly coems in to dry out the body, which is medium at most with a slight bit of yeast flavors. The body again is medium, and the combined carbonation and alcohol phenols quikly make this a bit bitey on the tongue. However, this is scarily drinkable! Oh God, a whole bottle all by myself? I guess I'll take one for the team...

A: Foggy golden with tons of fine carbonation, 3 fingers of light yellow tinged white head. Good retention.
S: Sweet and caramel like, light fruity and floral qualities. Daisies, and cantelope.
T: Belgian yeast, light lemon tartness, la fair amount of sweetness, sight bitterness on the finish. Really hides the alcohol, and is much like a white wine in dryness. Sharp cheddar like quality.
M: A lot of fine bubbled carbonation, a little thickness to the body, but it comes across as light, airy and dry. Really well done.
O: An excellent brew. Great mouth feel, very mellow in taste, definitely a Belgian style beer. Bought in Boca Raton, drank on Deerfield Beach, July 15, 2014.
