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.

Slightly hazed golden color with a thin white head that forms a lasting crown.

Sweet aroma with white wine grapes and Belgian yeast.

Sweet tasting as well, white grape, a hint of apricot, very light and dull hop bitterness and a touch spicy.

Medium bodied, a bit syrupy, with strong carbonation.

Pleasant enough, sweet, Belgian intro beer.

Good beer. I had it in a bottle. Thought the finish was a little "tinny". Not much head.
