Pours a clear, golden color. 2/3 inch head of an white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, slight earthy malt, slight spicy hops, and floral notes. Fits the style of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, slight earthy malt, slight spicy hops, slight alcohol, and a hint of floral notes. Overall, good appearance, decent aroma, body, and blend.

Clear golden pour with a white one-finger head. Big spicy aroma with clove and yeast standing out. Tastes has biscuit and bread flavors upfront backed by a strong grainy yeast flavor and a hint of clove and pepper in the finish.

This beer pours a very clear pale gold with a large head. The aroma is huge with clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, banana, and cantaloupe all present. The flavor follows the very clear Belgian yeast bomb route, with banana largest, and plenty of clove, melon, and peanut butter. The mouthfeel is devilishly light with a foamy creamy carbonation. Overall this is an amazing expression of pure yeast flavors with a well hidden ABV. Seems like a baby Tripel - all the flavor with less body and richness. At the price, I find this outstanding.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Clear yellow with a nice thick head and good lacing. Nice sweet smell, pears. The taste is sweet and fruity with apples, pears, lemons. Not a bad Belgian ale.

A fairly clear, lemon/golden in the glass with a moderate amount of bubbles rising. About a finger of white foamy head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Lots of carbonation when I rock the glass and spotty lacing left down the glass. The aroma is yeasty, candied sugar, tartness, pears, and apricot jam. Some tart apple in the flavor, jam, and light dried fruit. Carbonation is full and body is medium. The beer is quite dry but also just a little of that sticky quality. Overall, just a pleasant brew and you definitely get a Belgian vibe from it.

Perhaps a bit over sharp on the alcohol content this is still a great beer.
