Really pleasant and smooth Belgian ale. Copper/orange in color with high fluffy head, which fades to small creamy head with lots of lacing. Aroma is malt, with lots of bread, flowers, spice, fruit and barnyard smells. Taste is more of the same, smooth and buttery. Slick mouthfeel, long finish.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, 11JL bottle code. Pours lightly hazy golden orange color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon zest, peach, pear, apple, pepper, straw, grass, herbal, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, peach, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, straw, grass, herbal, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, peach, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, straw, grass, herbal, honey, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian strong pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
