A-Pours a lightly cloudy peach! Not much head at all. Also not too strong with the lacing.

S-Yeasty and peachy with some lingering funk and a noticeable fruity sweetness.

T-Peaches are sweet but semi-natural in flavor. Yeast and spice with some funky stuff and faint oak.

M-Really surprised by how calm the alcohol is. Modest carbonation.

O/D-Pretty cool, didn't know much about this beer when I tried it. Was surprised by its ABV after tasting it. Drinks much easier than its gravity.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; Release 9, bottled on 1/6/2012. Pours hazy golden amber color with a 1 finger foamy white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lacing. Light foamy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of peach, pear, apple, orange, clove, candi sugar, pepper, oak, white wine, floral, bread, and yeast earthiness. Slight phenolic note that goes away as it warms. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with peach and wine barrel notes; with good strength. Taste of peach, pear, apple, orange, clove, candi sugar, light pepper, oak, white wine, floral, bread, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of peach, light fruits, clove, candi sugar, light pepper, oak, white wine, bread, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast esters with peach and barrel flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a slick and moderately syrupy mouthfeel that is good. Alcoohl is very well hidden with hardly any warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice fruit Belgian strong pale ale. Good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy esters with the peach and wine barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.
