4.2/5 rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bottled March 20, 2011. cellared as appropriate.
appearance: Deep gold color. Big billowy white head that lasts and laces very nicely. Bit of chill haze that fades quickly.
smell: Lemony floral aromatics, and bright alluvial and slightly peppery hop characters. Clean malty sweetness.
taste: Everything the aroma promises. Horsey peppery funk (late Brett B?). Well balanced clean malt backbone.
mouthfeel: Medium or just under medium. Full carbonation supports a nice fluffy feel. Slightly astringent in the finish. Long an pleasant finish with all the characters of the taste and aroma represented.
overall: Very well done Belgian Golden Strong (or Strong Pale as BA classes it). Straddles the old world characters of a Golden Strong, Tripel, with the bit of Brett funk. 18 months put som dryness and funk into it that I really like, and can imagine a couple more years would just bring out more complexity.

4.19/5 rDev +1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
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.
