Golden color with a thick and abundant head with great retention.
Aroma of oranges, banana and booze.
Sweet and spicy flavor with notes of oranges, Belgian yeast, peaches, booze and some banana. Dry aftertaste.
Medium body with an effervescent carbonation. Considering it is 8% abv, alcohol is relatively well hidden.
Faithful to style, with medium complexity and a bit standard, but easier to drink than average. And it grows as it warms up. Plays well spicy bad cop and sweet fruit good cop.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: A medium amber colored beer with good clarity and a persistent head of rocky, white bubbles. Some sticky lacing.

S: A strong aroma of light colored fruits, like peaches, oranges and a touch of banana with a light note of spice. There is a moderate malt sweetness along with a floral, alcohol sweetness.

T: The spice is mode dominate in the flavor but otherwise matching the aroma with a medium-strong black pepper flavor and peach to orange fruit flavors. There is a medium-strong hops bitterness and a light earth hops flavor. With only a quick flavor of a honey-like malt sweetness this beer has a fairly bitter balance. The finish is dry with a peppery and bitter aftertaste.

M: A medium bodied beer with some creaminess and a very strong level of carbonation.

O: A decent Belgian Strong with spice and fruit.

A - Nice golden star color with an impressive fluffy white head. A metric ton of carbonation streaming off the bottom like a champagne. A nice sticky lacing that really lasts.

S - Belgium yeast with a nice breadiness with good summer fruit esters. Very sweet smelling lots of that confectionery type aromas and clove.

T - Anyone who is familiar with that Belgium flavor will feel right at home with this it follows the nose to the point with some nice sweet characters of banana and clove.

M - Medium mouthfeel and ridiculous carbonation create a strong and poignant tongue bite. It's heavy and its sharp but with incredible drinkability. There is a warming sensation to the 8.0% ABV which is very typical to the style.

O - Very nice I have never actually tried this before although it is readily available in my market...call it normalcy I would definitely pick up several of these next time I am out. Very drinkable and honestly I am not sure why the suggested serving temperature is so low I am having it around 70° and i'ts just beautiful.
