The 750ml bottle opened with a loud pop. Always a nice sound. Poured into a tulip glass. Hazy golden orange in color with large white head. Good head retention with good lacing. A very nice looking beer.

Smell is oh so nice. Honey, maybe apple, phenols, Belgian yeast, maybe a little hop bite. Really nice.

Taste is superb. Like a hoppy Tripel. A little fruity spice with mild hops to start, hoppy Tripel in the middle with a clean mild hop finish. There seems to be a mild honey undertone throughout. Very good and refreshing.

Mouthfeel is great. Perfect carbonation with a little smoothness. Nice smooth crisp finish if that's possible.

Overall an outstanding beer. Not many good Belgian ipas out there but this one is really good. Like most European beers the tastes are very subtle as compared to Americans that tend to be out front. I've had it a few times and will definitely be back.
