Amber color with a three finger thick off-white head with good retention and leaving lots of laces.
Sweet aroma of Cointreau liquor, herbal hops, Belgian yeast and mild white pepper. Hints of pears and peaches after warming up.
Similarly, flavor of Cointreau liquor with lots of perfumy and herbal hops, light white pepper, green pears, champagne and pineapples juice foam. Aftertaste takes a while to become dry and bitter.
Medium body with effervescent carbonation. Alcohol of 10.5% abv is noticeable but is harmonic with the overall beer.
Good beer, though I was expecting a bit more complexity, but on the other hand, it was surprisingly hoppy for the style and interesting that borders other styles besides Strong Golden Ale such as Belgian IPA and Tripel.
