Pours a pale hazy gold with a serious rocky white head that just keeps going. Smell is cookie dough, slight grassiness, and a little cinnamon. The taste is bready and a bit toasted. The aftertaste has that cookie dough thing going on. Interesting, but one dimensional, like an adult film star. The mouthfeel is medium carbonated and medium slick. About which I feel medium. Overall, I like it. It doesn't have the interesting complexity of a Duvel, but its definitely a tasty beer. Prost, Fritz!

22 oz bottle pours a hazed gold color with a frothy white head. Decent retention and lace.

Nose is fruity yeast phenols, lemony hops and some soft grainy malt. Impressed.

Taste is a really nice, soft grain base with the Sorachi Ace hops really strutting their stuff. Yeast throws down more than the Brooklyn version and plays well with the rich malt. Odd using 'rich' to describe pale maltiness, but this one just has a body to it that couples with the malt flavors perfectly. I am more impressed with this than any other Rahr beer I have had....good stuff.

A: The beer pours a nice golden body with a thick white head that quickly fades to nothing more than a thin cloud of head around the top of the beer. Also as the beer fades, it leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

S: The smell of this beer is absolutely amazing. It has a strong belgian yeast scent with some spices added in too.

T: The first thing I notice is a nice flavor of belgian yeast and then the spices and slight bitterness come in after a few seconds.

M: This has a nice thick carbonation with a tingle on the back of the throat and the tip of the tongue. The beer goes down very smooth.

O: This, to me, is one of the best beers that Rahr has ever made. Most of their beers to me are very average and bland, but this is for sure not one of them. The only beer that I would say is better, would be their BBAWW. Well done Rahr, well done.
