Bottle poured into a chalice

A: Pours a nice sunset orange with a creamy white head, the head vanished quickly, no lacing, looks great.

A: Belgian yeast aromas right up front, peppercorns coming through, nice citrusy backend, getting some bread biscuit aromas, slight herbal aromas, smells very complex.

T: Belgian yeast flavors, nice citrus bitterness in the middle, finishes strong with pepper spice, slight heat on the end, very nice.

M: Medium mouthfeel with a strong dry finish

O: I like this, it starts out with that Sierra Nevada Belgian yeast flavor like the Quad with Plums, some bread biscuits flavors, then dips into some citrus bitterness and a great spice dry finish, easy drinking for 7.5%, it has that Belgian beer complexity, will definitely pick up a four pack after having the single.
