Poured from a bottle into a tulip.
A - Pours a clear reddish-copper with a two-finger head of white sea foam. Rings of sticky lacing.
S - Healthy aroma of tropical fruit esters, Belgian yeast funk, spice, and booze. Booziness comes out more in the nose as it warms.
T - Complex blend of fruity phenols (melon, banana, bubblegum), honey, and musty/earthy funk. Spicy herbal hops keep things interesting in the finish. ABV noticeable but not in a bad way. Sweetness fades in by the mid-palate as horse blanket funk takes hold. Malts are sweet, subdued, and take a huge backseat to the other flavors.
M - Light side of medium bodied, with spritzy carbonation. Oddly creamy.
O - A tasty, rich, complex BSPA, although I must admit, I found it just a little too "barnyard" for my tastes. Would have to be in a special mood for this to be a rebuy.

Poured a beautiful cloudy amber with little head. Looks nice, but more head would raise it higher. Scents of slight bubblegum, grain, some alcohol, dark fruit, Belgian yeast and candi sugar. Quite nice, complex and Belgian in character. Flavor was boozy with a very heavy initial hit of alcohol but also flavors of Belgian yeast, apricot, dark fruit, slight white raisin, slight hints of straw and a somewhat grainy flavor on the finish. Very nice, with flavors of both a Belgian Dark and Belgian Golden. Mouthfeel was medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a slight burn of alcohol. Very good and sippable. Overall this is an excellent beer. It's complex and unique, combining the best of Belgian flavors into a very drinkable whole. Highly recommended.
