12oz bottle into a snifter. The brew is a clear yellow color with persistent white froth from rising bubbles resting atop. Some patchy lace sticks.

The smell includes notes of clove, pear, apple and herbal grassy hops. A sweetness like belgian candy sugar is also present.

The taste is much the same, clove spice blending to grassy hops. Some pear/apple skin fruitiness with some straw aftertaste break things up.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A decent mix of character that I wasnt crazy about but the hops kinda worked with the yeasty spice since it wasnt too bitter.

Pours a straw yellow with ample head, mild retention. Nose is wonderfully fruity and spicy. Taste follows with more fruit and spice and some bready malt. Mouthfeel is thin but smooth.
Overall a nice beer. Not the best of style but a very drikable beer.

bottle into a tulip.

pours a bright yellow with a nice inch thick white head. no lacing. smell is very much like a hefe...very crisp and lemony. taste is much more Belgian like. dry for sure, not very sweet. bitter finish. good. mild body, mild carbonation.

overall nice Belgian ale! recommended.
