look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: A beautiful golden color, short white head that dissipates fast, leaves little lacing

Smell: Fruity. Pears, apples, and spice.

Taste: A bit more spice and bitterness up front than the smell would suggest. Still has the fruitiness, and some sweetness. A little bit of booze in there, but not a bad level.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, high crisp carbonation.

Overall: Pretty good. For the category, I like Duvel better, but this wins in price. This encourages you to drink it much slower than Duvel does, my guess would be it has less (or none) Belgian candy sugar than Duvel. A solid brew that I would consider getting again.

On tap at Milk Money in Providence, and served in a pint glass:

Appearance: pours a hazy, but very bright orange color. Carries a thick, sudsy off-white head that lingers for a very long time.

Aroma: lots of spice, and lots of nice. No booze present, but lots of coriander, some mild fruitiness, and some pepper spiciness.

Taste: malty and sweet, with lots of yeast character present as well. Some pepper, some lemon, lots of malt. Really enjoyed this one. Very drinkable and smooth, even at 7.6%

Feel: smooth, soft mouthfeel, with a sticky finish.

Overall: a really nice brew, and one I'd happily drink any time.
