This brew was way too sweet for my taste. My favorite brew is a DIPA, so I guess that I am a hop head. I bought a six pack of this beer with the intriguing name and gave away 5 of the bottles. I guess I will never again try a beer that has "Belgian style" on the bottle.

Poured this baby into a goblet and it's looking good. The body has a beautiful neon whiskey hued amber with a fine frosting of dense creamy foam.
The aroma is all Belgian; hard candy, spices, and exotic fruit.
The flavor up front is all sweet malt, and rock candy followed by onslaught of intense hop bitterness. Nice balance we have here.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and the high ABV is completely hidden.
Overall this is a great brew--not for beginners, amateurs, posers, BMC only dullards, toddlers, dabblers, or anybody unaffiliated with serious beer. This would be too good for them.

At first sip, the remnants of the head offer up zesty notes of citrus. Several sips later, it's clear that this beer tends to use it's 10% alcohol content punch-up it's flavor profile instead of letting the ingredient speak for themselves. That's actually not a bad thing, but it does leave something to be desired after the experience is over. I'd revisit this review after a heavier meal prior to consuming another bottle. On its own, it doesn't do much to leave a lasting impression.
