Stubby bottle poured into a snifter.

A- yellow appearance with a thick two finger white head.

S- apples, spice, yeast, pepper, and malt sweetness.

T- yeast, bitter sweet apple, hops, and pale malt.

M- prickly carbonation, bitter with a dry finish, and some alcohol warmth.

O- This is a great Belgian beer with many textures of flavor. I love it's crisp bitterness and it goes down easy. There will always be a spot in my fridge for this beer.

Nice Belgian.

S - nice crisp apple smell

T - a little too carbinated for me though the flavor was good.

O - good flavor & it paired well with pasta and cheese. Reminded me a bit of a chardonnay champagne - a little bit heavier than your normal champagne but that's what you want with food.
