look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
Poured from a 22oz corked & caged bottle.
A: The beer poured a dark, hazy orange with a dense white 2 finger head. About half a finger lasted throughout the entire drink. When held up to light, some light carbonation could be seen streaming to the top.
S: The aroma was good. I would say that it was typical Belgian style, sweet and fruity, with subtle hints of the malt and hops.
T: Personally, to date, I think that this is one of the finest examples of a U.S. made Belgian-style beer. The taste followed the nose very well, but the malt and hops cut down the sweetness and fruitiness, but this is not a bad thing. It gave the beer excellent balance.
M/D: The beer had a medium body, it was smooth, creamy and very easy to drink. Next time I am at the store I will be picking up additional bottles so that I can keep it in stock in the beer fridge. This will be a staple in my fridge for some time.

4.19/5 rDev +1.2%

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.
