11.2 oz bottle poured into oversized Duvel tulip glass.

A - Semi-clear golden straw with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. The bubbles in the head are a bit larger than most beers.

S - Dry fruit and the characteristic belgian yeast aroma. It has a hint of skunkiness, but not enough to overpower the other smells.

T - A very clean, dry, peppery taste. Somewhat tart apple, very yeasty, and a slight hint of clove on the end. Possibly a little bit of sweet grape as well.

M - Moderate body with massive carbonation. The beer is super prickly in the mouth, and just assaults the tastebuds with its yeasty tartness.

O - Overall this beer is on the dry side, but there's a little bit of sweetness to round it out. The belgian yeast combined with huge carbonation makes this an amazing beer.
