3.03/5 rDev -22.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3
A-Pours yellow/gold. Small sample but I can tell that this would birth quite a massive head.
S-Aroma is especially yeasty. All the Belgian spiciness pops up in the nose. Lacking a truly hoppy aroma. Noble hops are light. More about the yeast and alcohol.
T-Flavor is more of the same. Spicy Belgian yeast and a full, spiced-bready malt. Hops aren't potent enough for me. Wouldn't have guessed this was a Belgian IPA...if it even truly is.
M-Full bodied and hot. Carbonation was lively, which lifted the feel a bit. A sipper.
O/D-Not a fan of this beer unfortunately. Thankful I didn't shell out any more for this because I would have been disappointed.

4.1/5 rDev +4.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a very pale, somewhat cloudy gold into my goblet. A two-finger head composed of tiny white bubbles perches on top and then slowly collapses, leaving spotty lacing.
Smell: The yeast takes a more prominent role than in many beers, and it is interesting. Classic Belgian white pepper and cloves from the yeast are present, but the yeast itself is also prominent, if that makes any sense. A mix of herbal notes combine with a vinous element to round it out. Very enticing.
Taste: This is a good one. It’s very well balanced, and the hops generally provide a perfect counterpoint to the candy sugar notes. Noble hops add an almost pilsner-like feel. White pepper and other spices combine beautifully with the herbal flavors, which amplify as the beer warms. Really complex and well done.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is relatively high and the beer is almost airy in the mouth, which seems to help camouflage the almost undetectable 10% ABV.
Drinkability: Very high, particularly given the very well-hidden alcohol.
