Given to me by the PR people.
a) Hazy, yellow orange, white rocky head
s) Yeast & phenolics, some wurst-like gamey/fleshy notes, bubble gum, strawberry ester, slight acetone.
t) Apple & pear. Interesting spirit note, like Russian vodka. Late toast, nuts, spice...
m) Quite light, but with alcohol heat.
d) Very drinkable, very dangerous, therefore.
The warmer it gets, the more Euro lager it seems. Pale malt comes through now. Blindfolded, I would call it an Oktoberfest or Bock with a shot of vodka.

When poured, this beer has a classic Belgian Triple golden color. It had very fizzy thick head that disappeared in less than 2 seconds. The smell is also very typical of Belgian Triple. It is fruity with a strong peach smell. You can also pick up the alcohol. At first the taste is fruity, peach, pear, white grapes. Then the alcohol takes over until the finish. It feels thick and bubbly on the tongue. All and all the alcohol is too strong to be a drinkable beer and would be too much for many food pairings. It was nice too try, but I wouldn't get it again.

Pours hazy gold with a fading white head.
Nose shows banana, soft cinnamon, caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast. Enticing.
Flavours focus on the malt - caramel, bready malt, doughy yeast, banana. Also some booze.
A bit too much carbonation.
Tasty stuff.

The most remarkable aspect of this beer, unfortunately, is the bottle. The brew comes in a wine-like bottle, which - underneath the crown - has a unique wine-like plastic cork. Neat! The beer, however, is forgettable. It is a mostly clear golden yellow color with a negligible head. Average. The aroma is pale malts, a bit of grass, and alcohol. Nothing else. Not bad, but forgettable. The taste is a little better, with sweetness in the front, warming, sugar, phenols, and a bit of buiscut. Medium mouthfeel. A bit low in carbonation for the style. All in all, this one is nothing special.

Best by Jan 30th, 2015. Opened May 1st, 2014.

A - Very similar to the 32 Oppale. Hazy yellow wheat body. White head pours well, but settles quickly with little lace.

S - Banana, plantains, wheat, stale bread, pear, and just a hint of coriander.

T - Creamy banana, orange zest, lemon acidity, coriander, pink peppercorns, and plantains. Much more hefe-like than BSA.

M - Medium light body.

O - The wheat and banana is so strong that the BSA isn't even a Belgian wit, but more of a classic German hefe. Great drinkability thought at 8.4%

It has a golden-orange color, quite hazy, with a not exceptional foam, with some big bubbles.
In the smell: fruity (peach), strong and warm (even tropical fruit, and citrus fruit).
The taste has the same notes of the smell: fruitiness, peach, tropical (avocado?), and even pear. The alcoholic strenght is well present, and it is a bit too strong. Even the sweetness of the peach in syrup is a bit too strong. It left a sensation too "warm".
Sweet in the aftertaste, again, with too many peach in syrup.
A little unbalanced.
