16oz can: this one pours a clear light golden color. There was about no head or lacing to it. An interesting nose. Malty, with hints of white wine grapes and apples. The taste is good. Leaning to a fuller body, with a sweet silky texture. Getting the apples and white wine flavors with the malts. Pretty decent brew!

When rating I was having a hard time not giving upper 4s or 5s. This beer hits all the hallmarks of a Belgian ale...clear, very clear and golden straw color. Nose of green apple and maybe a hint of apricot. The fruity notes coupled with the alcohol tell me this is a well brewed beer. The abv is high but hidden really well and I got it in a pint can I recall under 3.50$! So why am I questioning why it's not the best Belgian I've ever had? Hard to say. But I'm very pleased with my first taste of what Daredevil has to offer.

This is just not a style I have ever enjoyed, I keep trying them hoping to find one I like, but there is just something about the finish I did not like on this one. It was almost soapy.

A - Golden body, mostly clear, with a medium white head. Lacing is present but not expansive.

S - Fruity. White wine. Grapes. Apples. And a definite hint of alcohol.

T - Like the nose, but with greater depth. A back end with some lingering mild minerality. A note of honey. Lots of apple.

M - Given that the beer is over 8%, the feel is surprisingly light and easy. Carbonation is bright. Close is pretty clean.

O - A pleasure. A very fruity take, with lots of great esters, showing great results from the yeast. Very well done.

Aroma is floral and apple dominant, with notes of peach. Slight malt sweetness.

Flavor is spicy, with clove and almost cinnamon notes upfront, finishing laden with apple and peach. Pepper lingers.
