Thanks to gottajiboo2 for hookin me up with this beer. Shared with Idesofmarch89.
Served in a snifter glass.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy dull lemon/gold color with a frothy 2 finger head that stands firm with good retention. patches of lace.
Smell: It has a nice Belgian yeast aroma with suggestions of lemon grass and spices with a bit of sweet fruit and a dab of alcohol shows through.
Taste: The flavor is very friendly and does not show a 9% ABV. It has a light alcohol warmth at the end but the flavors start with the Belgian yeast, bread, candy sugar, topical fruit and some citrus earthy hops.
Mouthfeel: It has a very soft light medium feel with active carbonation but not over the top. Yeasty dry finish.
Drinkability: Magnificently drinkable. My wife liked it too. Guess I I need to buy... =)
Hope this is helpful.

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.
