Heaven in a bottle.

Golden color with a fuffy white head that slowly fades as you drink leaving a good amount of chunky lacing.

Smell is very pleasant. Spicy with a slight fruityness and a hint of grain and sweet malts. Corriander and possibly clove make a good showing.

Taste is superb. No trace of alcohol, starting slightly fruity with a slight sweetness. Fades off into a good spicy hop finish that doesn't dry out the mouth. No off flavors at all, just strictly solid flavors.

Best beer I've ever had. At 8% ABV it might not be a sessionable beer, but that won't stop me from having a few, now to find it in a closer location than Oregon.

Perfection in a glass. The appearance is a beautiful, light golden color with a massive, fluffy head and champagne-like bubbles everywhere. Spicy, lemony aroma with classic, funky flavors imparted by the Belgian yeast. Super high carbonation, per the style, and an incredibly crisp, dry finish. If I had to pick one beer to drink for the rest of my life, this would be it.
