A sharp, 'creamy' taste. Pleasant, almost cider-like on the nose

Poured from bottle to two tulips for a split. Golden in color, with a light ring of head that's gone in no time. Active carbonation. Aroma and taste square with the style, hits all the right notes. However, there is a strong boozy heat flavor that is overpowering at first that vanishes after a little while.

Overwhelming bubble gum flavor. Overly sweet. Pales in comparison to Belgian classics.

Had on tap at the Pig & Fiddle and from a 12 oz. bottle.
L: Pours brilliant amber under a 2” clingy white to cream colored persistent foam collar.
S: Smells like a springtime meadow with a floral, herbal earthiness.
T: Slightly sweet, fruit, caramel, traces of chocolate, hint of banana, citrus, lightly tart, traces of root beer.
F: Very smooth and creamy, medium full body, slightly above medium carbonation.
O: A big, full flavored, complex easy to drink beer.
