Pours a clear, bright, bronze color. Head is 1 inch and tons of tiny bubbles continuously rise to the top. Lacing was great and so was head retention.
First smell is a spicy, peppery yeast. Some cloves also there mixed with straw malts. No hops or alcohol are detected. Smells are a combination of a BPSA and a hefeweizen.
Taste is of pale straw malts, light corn and crayon. Hops arent present and alcohol is slightly detectable. Spice like cloves are in there mixed with some off flavors that somewhat distract from the beer.
Mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Carbonation is high as typical for a Belgian ale but not overpowering. Head contributed to the overall smoothness of the beer nicely.
Overall this beer was semi sessonable and cheap for its style. There were some off flavors that detracted from the enjoyment of the beer and that prevented it from obtaining a higher score.

Pours true gold. Perfect amber. White head starts fat and falls of webby and sticky, then to a film on top before it goes away completely. not too much lacing. Lots of bubbles to look at. Nose is lovely. Sweet hint of pear and some lovely soft biscuit malt sweetness. A bit more clove than I expected at first but nice and a very faint banana in back. Some sweet flower petals and as it warms some pungent bitter grass. Lovely in the drink with a crisp and dry malt.A softness that is actually excited by all those bubbles. The clove and the fruit combine lovely and earthy at first then give way to a fruity middle made up of light peach and a little pear around the edges. The finish is dry and drying to the palate with a light remnant of the malt sweetness, a bit of ticklish spice and that lovely peach. It lingers but not long .
Lovely adn everything it should be.
