4.38/5  rDev +9%

Poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Hazy golden body covered by a layer of white foam that dissipates quickly to a ring, with a little lacing on the glass. Not as much retention as I'd expect from a Belgian devil style beer.

Aroma of sweet light malt, coriander spice, grassy hops.

Husky Belgian yeast flavor with a little metal, quite a bit of coriander, some tropical/pear fruit and toffee, good amount of grassy hops. Good balance between sweetness and hop bitterness.

Body is medium and carbonation is fizzy, for a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel. Has a little alcohol burn on the tongue.

A flavorful, complex devil beer that is a delight to drink. Seems the ABV is a bit higher than advertised. The alcohol, strong spice, and good amount of hops makes this a strong ale that takes the palate for a serious, tasty ride.

a: Chill hazed golden straw color; poured with a short lived fizzy head.

s: Soft candi-sugar, banana and other fruit phenols, and hint of grassy hops.

t: Mirrors the smell for the most part only more so, if that makes sense. Softly sweet candi-sugar, plenty of fruity phenols, leafy hops and clove at the finish.

m: Silky smooth and gently carbonated.

o: Deliciously simple and a bargain to boot. A case purchase is imminent for sure. I wonder if a little something was lost without the bottle conditioning? I need to buy a bottle some time to find out.

A CANQuest (TM) salute to co-owner Volker Stewart of The Brewer's Art for bowing to my insane suggestion to put this beer in a CAN! I don't care what it tastes like at this point - it's going in the cooler to the beach and I'm taking my boom box and blasting some Black Sabbath. That's how The CANQuest (TM) rolls at this point in time.

The Crack once more revealed a brimful CANtainer and I CANnot hold back my joy at this seeming trend among craft CANners! An inverted Glug later and we were on a roll. I had a solid finger of rocky bone-white head that boiled and bubbled like any good witch's brew and slowly fell, leaving sticky lacing in its wake. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity and suddenly King Midas and Croesus were wrestling with me, not over the beer, but over our new favorite Nebraska native, Val MidWest! Nose was spicy, but not from adjuncts, but undoubtedly from the yeast, which also imparted a pleasant mustiness. Mouthfeel was medium and the taste was a CANglomeration between JuicyFruit and Big Red gum. It was mixed fruity, but also hot and spicy! Jeez-O, man, I may need a lay-down after this one. The lacing that had begun to appear was going to require a jackhammer to remove and I just returned my rental the other day. My mind is starting to smooth out and this is not helping! In fact, it may be paving the way. Finish was dry, thanks to the yeast having done its job in a big way. I'm done.

Picked up a can at The Bottle Shop on Passyunk - had not seen Brewer's Art in cans before.

Poured into a standard pint glass, color is golden, straw, nicely transparent; head is off white presenting thickly but dissipating to a ring and light lace.

Smell is phenolic upfront, light pepper and some malt notes, pilsent and biscuit.

Taste is right on the BSPA track, light sweetness, good off yeast flavors, could use a hint of more maltiness or something but very tasty.

Mouthfeel is upfront on the tongue, good pepperiness and drying qualities with a hint of lingering sweet malt flavors.

Overall I really like this coming from the can, great flavors and BSPA qualities, just missing a bit more malt flavoring in taste.
