Decently medium mouthfeel like a wheaty beer. Moderate carbonation. Higher ABV (7.56) and it tastes like it. Mild hop taste. Taste of spices. Decently bitter.

My first North Coast beer was a great introduction to their lineup, and I'll definitely look for more of them in my area. This is a very solid Belgian, full of flavor and packing a little punch with the 7.6% ABV. Well balanced and nicely colored, this is a fine beer.

12oz bottle PKGD 05052017

Poured into a tall oversized tulip shows a cloudy orange-tinged yellow gold body that supports a fluffy 1in white head, but unfortunately no lacing. Constant rising bubble activity.

Aromas include banana, white vinous grapes, slight clove and biscuit malt for a floral combination.

Flavors match the aroma and a beautiful balance between yeast, malt, and fruity tastes.

Mouthfeel leans medium, but is mostly light, slightly sticky, and almost dry.

Overall a solid style reference.

Nice Belgium golden ale pours with thin slow fading foamy white head and smells of spice. Nice spicey easy drinking strong Belgium.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Solid golden color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of pineapple juice, candi sugar, orange marmalade, biscuit malt, pears, banana and pine.
Likewise, flavor with notes of white pepper, orange marmalade, candi sugar, pears, coriander, herbal hops, white grapes, flowers, banana, apple puree and Belgian yeast. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Medium to full body with appropriate carbonation.
Faithful to Style Belgian Strong Ale with hops and spices on the milder side of the style and predominant fruity notes.
