750 ml, waxed-cap bottle into Bruery tulip. Another thanks to Wasatch for another great Utah beer.

Pours cloudy golden-copper, with a big, creamy 3 finger-head on top. Nice retention, as the head eventually settles down into a half-inch thick creamy head. Loads of lacing gone wild.

Nose has a surprisingly big dose of higher alcohols, white pepper, candy sugar, just a bit of pear mixed in with the spiciness, maybe a bit of banana but nothing close to what you'd find in a hefe - dry, spicy, and with a pale sweetness.

Taste rachets the nose up a notch. The initial peppery yeast note holds up malt body that is at once bready, hinting at pears and even tropical fruit, and with a nice depth that goes beyond a simple pils malt bill. Maybe a bit of vienna? Finish is long, lush, with the yeast riding out on point with a nice mix of peppery spiciness, floral notes, just a bit of tangy yeast.

Mouthfeel is creamy, medium bodied that headed into full, dry, carbonation that moves from smooth and creamy to spritzy.

Drinkability is good, very good actually, surprisingly so. Delicious beer, with a big dose of higher alcohols.

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.

Medium yellow in color
Smells like Belgian malt and spice
Taste is a good balance, often this type of malt can be Overpowering but here it's just enough to have a bite
One of the better beers of the style
