Pours a slightly hazy peachish color. Lots of bubbles rising to the top of the glass from the bottom. Huge two finger frothy white head. Lots of larger bubbles in the head. Lacing is so puffy and thick that it leaves clouds on the glass. Light and fruity. Nice champagne like aromas. Saison aromas. Coriander, orange peel, and belgian yeast esters. Candied sugar also present as it warms a bit. Spicy and slightly boozy, though soft. A nice smelling brew.
Sweet, but not overly sweet. It's a dry sweetness that isn't thick on the palate. Spices, orange peel, lemon zest, with some pepper flavors. Yeasty with slight bready notes, though they don't leave that usual chalky mouthfeel. Dry mouthfeel with a lemony finish that doesn't pucker the lips. Spritzy bubbles remind me of champagne a bit and tend to take over the later half of the mouthfeel I'm not sure this is a belgian strong ale. I think I'd stick it under the saison or a strong saison. A nice one from Brooklyn.

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.
