500mL can (date stamp L8412 09:22) served in a Tripel Karmeliet glass.

Appearance: Gold with just a bit of chill haze (became clear as the beer warmed up) with an initial white thin head that slowly died back to a skin across the top. Lots and lots of persistent lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Yeasty with a bit of banana and clove, combined with other fruity esters.

Taste: Very nicely balanced between fruity esters, banana/clove, bready malt, and a mild noble hop bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth with a just right thickness. Light carbonation, a tiny bit sticky on the teeth.

Overall / Drinkability: A well balanced strong Belgian pale ale. Dangerously drinkable - there is no warning that this beer is 8.5% ABV when you drink it - it politely sneaks up on you by the end of the glass. Great with food (Swedish meatballs in this case) and definitely something to get again.

T3.75 very wheaty and very strong
F5 Incredibe - silky, perfect amount of carbonation and body.
O3.75 - top beer. I am not a regular wheat beer drinker so too strong for me, but recommended for wheat beer connosours.
