look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a cloudy mahogany brown with an off-white, 2 finger head. Average retention. Lacing is spotty, with little stick.

Smell - Sweet, sugary aroma. Grape bubblegum. Subtle hints of raisin.

Taste - Tart green apple to start. Mild toffee mid-taste. More Grape bubblegum that was found in the nose (think bubble yum) hits near the finish. Subtle, underlying alcohol presence. Sweet, fairly clean finish.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied, with syrupy character. Despite it's heaviness, the lively carbonation keeps the beer feeling fresh, sip after sip.

Overall - A very good Belgian. It's not my favorite style, but this one's made it's mark on me. With that said, I don't know how often I'll buy it considering it's high price mark.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Enjoyed this 11.2oz stubby bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass.

A: Pours a dark amber hue with a fizzy, off-white, 4-finger head that slowly dissipates down the side of the glass leaving a nice trail and ending in a solid fizzy lace.

S: Strong, sweet, and spicy aroma that almost burns the nostrils.

T: Sweet and tart Belgian yeast flavor with a fruity and malty background that finishes in the alcoholic spicy side.

M: Very strong and boozy. Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Excellent Belgian Strong ale – Complex flavors and aromas.
