awesome brew right here, a hoppy belgian, which seem to be coming into vogue more and more, but with all that are out there, the chuouffe, the lupulus, and the like, this one is the best of the lot that I've had so far. its blonde and hazy, very well carbonated, and heady all day. the nose is belgian first, somewhat like a tripel in terms of heft and aromatic, but its lacking just a bit of that sweetness, and instead replaces it with floral and punchy hops. delightful flavor trip, hops first and last, delicate but prominent. hints of citrus and blooming fruit trees, minimal bitterness. the grain seems to be predominantly wheat, maybe some pale barley in there too, and just a very soft texture to it. interesting spice complex from the belgian yeast comes out in the finish. its complex yet familiar too, i was surprised to like this so much, and at 7 or so bucks a bottle, its an awfully fair priced brew. definitely worth trying, one of the better hoppy belgians on the market.

A - Cloudy yellow to light amber. Head disperses entirely upon sitting for moments. Lacing is strong.
S - HONEY FOR DAYS. Belgian Yeast. Malty. Dark and or light malts are strong here. Did I mention the honey?
T - Old honey dough bread. Strong yeast of the Belgian variety. Fresh malt. No bittering agent here at all. Someone call for some hops.
M - Medium to full bodied. Carbonation is a little much for me in this beer. The end feels more like the consistency of ginger ale than beer.
O - There is NOTHING special about this beer. This wants very badly to be the beer it is not. I hope that the honey added is what makes the alcohol content what it is. There is no way in hell that all of this honey only makes this the ABV what it is. I think I could go to Belgium now (or where ever the honey comes from) and I would not have to worry about the allergies.
I'd skip if other options were available.

Poured into a snifter
A: Clear golden with a white one finger head that dissipates to foamy bubbles. Nice lacing.
S: Citrus-y, featuring a horde of lemons with Belgian funk following.
T: Smooth hops with a great Belgian yeast backbeat. Earthy, lemony and citrus. Drinks like a saison.
M: Medium with medium, frothy carbonation.
O: Really surprised with how good this one is. At $5 for an 11.2 oz bottle, it better be. the wife loved it. We both want more.
