This interesting little brew was enjoyed from the 11.2 oz bottle in a snifter. Ale pours a hazy deep amber golden with a effervescent white head that dissipates quickly to a very thin ring with little lacing. Nose of Belgian candy sugars, citrus fruits of lemon and orange zest, spicy peppery hops, and sweet Belgian yeast. Flavors, with a good little rest in the glass give rise to sweet candy malts to the front and sides, sweet tart like citrus flavors to the sides as well, and a white pepper and bittering hops bite in the back as well as on the aftertaste. Smooth, wet, well carbonated mouth feel. Would love to have a bigger bottle of this to lay down for a number of years and try again. Very deep intense flavors that improve with warmth. Cold it is just a lightly sweet bitter beast, warmed it is a complex multi-layered delicious brew that keeps me going back and changing my numbers.

Happy New Year----Cheers!

Let it breath. This beer is exceptional, and ages well in the glass
