Excellent beer that is true to the style. Drinks like a session beer, but beware! At over 8 percent abv, respect and restraint are required.

Poured from a quart bottle into a frosted glass. Color light gold with a fizzy crazy volumous head. Highly carbonated Smell.. Malt and earthy. Taste.. On the dry side with spice, cloves. Feel... On the thin side and dry. Not big on this one.

A - A very bright and clear light orange gold color with a MASSIVE, pure white, rocky head and a tremendous amount of carbonation.

S - Very dry aroma, dry barnyard funk, pears, clove, Belgian spice.

T - Very light caramel malt base with nice clove, pears, light citrus peel, and ends with a nice citrus bite and a generous and lingering clove finish.

M - Full medium body with a massive amount of prickly carbonation that dies down to a creamy texture after several seconds.

O - This beer has been underrated in the previous reviews. Much better than the overall number.

A pretty standard approach for a smaller U.S. based craft brewery aping the Belgian style. It definitely has the cloves and the spice, but it lacks that earthiness you get in the best of them. A little thin as well. Not bad, just middle-of-the-road.
