This was poured at the ACBF in 2010. The beer was a hazy golden color with a nice looking white head on top. The smell of Belgian yeast and hops are on the nose. The taste of the beer has some light bubble gum flavors going on that are followed up by some nice bitter hops in the finish. The mouthfeel was well carbonated and left a sharp bitterness in the back of the tongue. Overall it was fun to try but there are better options out there for this style. Plus I'm not sure if this one will ever show up again in the future or not. Glad I had it though.
