Too much alcohol flavour. Worse than GD or San Agus.

Interesting but finish not quite as smooth as I was hoping
for. I got spoiled and bought the best first. Can't replace a
perfectly crafted Ale.

Golden straw in the glass. Hoppy aromas- pine, plus fruit (banana?), plus more pine. Hint of clove. Medium, smooth body. Tastes of fruits and clove. Fruits include banana and some others (tropical?) that I can't place. Midway through the swig the alcohol kicks in. And it never fades back out.

Rich and malty. Great for a cold winter evening when you need to warm up.

Appearance -golden bronze colored body with huge white head

Smell - citrus fruit upfront orange, lemons, honey, clove

Taste - vibrant notes of citrus headlined by orange, hint of lemon, honey, ginger, clove

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, high carbonation, citrus sweetness upfront, flavors linger, bitterness in the back end

Overall - this is a good Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Towards the head of the class of the style

Price Point - $4.59/11.2 oz bottle

Pours a hazy dark amber with fluffy khaki colored head, settles slowly to a quarter inch, splotchy rings on the glass. Smell: pear, cooked red delicious apple, peppery and spicy, orange peel. Taste: pear, candied orange peel, dried apricot, bready, caramel note, big spicy and peppery flavors and a little grassy. Syrupy-to-fluffy, peach skin finish. Huge and delicious with just a touch of warming alcohol. From corked and caged 750, no date found on bottle but judging from the label design it's 2013/4 bottling.
