not one of the best belgian ipas out there. poured into a chimay chalice (goblet) gave me a finger and a half worth of head that wa a slightly dark orange color. smells like an ipa with a belgian yeast strain, but mostly taste like an ipa. mouthfell is medium. gf's le freak or some of the others are much better examples' but this is not a bad beer

My third review, and as I said in the first two, please bare with me. Out of the bottle and into the glass, this is a pretty beer - a dark, transparent copper. The average pour produced about an inch of light white head, and as I drank the lacing clung to glass the entire way to the initial pour. The smell really made me want to dive right in; sweet biscuit, some banana, a touch of piney hops. The taste closely mimicked the smell, yet only sweeter. That delicious biscuit is up front but the sweetness surges forward. Next, I tasted a rush of banana and some unique candy, which is best described as bubblegum, but is much more indescribably unique. The hops don't appear until after the brew leaves the pallet. With the hoppy aftertaste, I get a nice boozey rush as well. The mouth feel is a bit watery, maybe even oily for the style. Overall, this beer is delicious, but the sweetness deters from the style and may prohibit prolonged drinkability.
