look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Imported by Vanburg & deWulf, Cooperstown
Purchased at the Lighthouse, Topsail Island, NC
Consumed in Albany, NY
Appearance - Creamy dense froth head that hangs and clings. Yellowish light gold with superfine bubbles and fine yeast specks hanging throughout the crystal liquid. And dont tell me its improperly poured, cause it was perfectly poured. Yeast is good.
Smell - First hit of tart lemon and pie spice. Then fills in with gentle malt and nice alcohol balance. Coming from behind is soft yeasty banana and peach. Delightful.
Taste - So much going on. Rich and delicious. Starts flowery and slightly tart. Next, citrusy lemon, Eastern spicyness (star anise?), oats, pepper, nice fruity and honey sweetness against plenty of clean bitter and warming alcohol. Ends with lemon, sugar and hops.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with nice silky creamyness.
Drinkability - At five bucks for 11.2 ounces. Gotta get to Tourpes, Belgium so I can drink this nectar all night long.
For me, this beer is missing nothing.

Overall - One of my new favorite belgians. Core addition to your tasting experience.
A: One must observe the many lines of fine champagne bubbles rising in this golden beer to appreciate how well crated and attractive it is. Continuous necklaces of pin point bubbles, finer than any champagne, build a billowing parchment colored head that lasts and laces.
A: The nose is dominated by barnyard Belgian yeast, hay, grass, wet spring, and then early orchard fruit with peppery spice. As expected, and then more. (Orchard, wet grass, you dont quite know what...)
T: follows the smell, but bigger, brighter, and lots of apple orchard fruit. Like you remember it the first time as a kid apple picking in October. Some wood, some spice cabinet, and a long, apple, pear finish with unusual spice cabinet and cedar.
MF: Great finish.
O: As a reviewer wrote the beer offers it all: "sweetness, sourness, dryness, funkiness, fruitiness and spiciness". Fruit: apples, pears and apricots. Sweet dominates early, bitter and dry dominates late.
Must try along with all great Belgians.
