L - Pours mid amber with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Not much lacing, but thick syrupy legs
S - Light estery notes are in the background with sweet caramel malts and dried fruit up front. Notes of sauvignon blanc meld nicely and hint at the yeasts
T - light and fruity with the alcohol well hidden. I am generally not a fan of Belgians and was given this by a friend and he was right on the money - not a ton of Belgian yeast in your face - this is subtle and delicate with great caramel malt and raisin flavors.
M - rich and creamy with a touch more carbonation than I like, but still very nice

Overall a very enjoyable beer with a lighter less in your face profile that belies the alcohol and horsepower underneath

From notes on 11/15/13

Sweet smelling. Banana smell. Medium orange in color. Lots of flavor. Hints of banana with a rich caramel yeast flavor. Really tasty. Slightly expensive at $12 a sixer, but worth it. Buy it before its gone.
