750 ml bottle. The brew pours very heady. After settling, it is about a finger high and steady as a rock. The beer is a deep hazy straw yellow with a few random bubbles climbing the sides. This is a nice looker. The aroma is lightly banana estery, sucrose-sweet, with orange and lemon zestyness. There is a mild yeasty spice running through it. As it warms a little, there is a solid puff of alcohol in there that plays nicely with the spice character. The flavor brins a good bit of yeasty spice, creamyness, and light mustyness. Orangepeel sweetness comes through along with a light sucrose sweetness. The finish is a light alcohol and mild spicy hop bitterness and a touch of raw hop leaf taste. The spicing and mustyness really come through on the finish. The alcohol is a little solventy, but not offensive at all. Warmth brings out some more fruity esters in the aroma as well. Mouthfeel is fairly thick with a moderate carbonation. It foams a little after taking a sip, which adds a bit of body to it without being too airy. Overall, this is a good brew. I like the musty and earthy yeast character and I think that a little more time will make this pop a little more. I think the alcohol will mellow and meld more with time as well.

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.
