4.33/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a white 330ml bottle into a Tremens tulip glass.

A: Pours with a white creamy head thats close to 3 fingers. Golden amber hue with lots of lacing around the glass.

S: Lots of Belgian yeast! Hints of pepper, wheatgrass and spice.

T: Explodes in the mouth with Pineapple, malted honey and pepper. Quite a bit of hop bitterness that masks the high (10.5%) ABV very well.

M: Yeasty natural carbonation in the mouth. Medicinal phenols mixed with a little bit of spicy pepper and a dry finish.

D: A beer that quenches and keeps me going back for more. But I am wondering just how much more before I'm flat on the floor? :)

This beer was a nice surprize to me as it was bought on a curious impulse!
