Interning here at the moment and having this fresh from the bright beer tank might be the best thing on earth. It has great overall flavor, and unbelievable drinkability for it having 8.7% ABV.
It has great balance with respect to bitterness to sweetness. The yeast is strong and brings out great belgian style flavors. This is just overall a great beer!

I have had this on two occasions both of them as growler fills direct from the brewery. I found it to be a fantastic beer. The guys at New England are great people who truly love what they are doing and their products reflect their passion. The beer was a cloudy golden yellow with a one finger dense, white head loaded with a great combination of banana, vanilla, and spice. It starts with a very mild bite of hops and finishes very smooth and sweet. This year's batch was probably running at a very sneaky 9.5% ABV with no alcohol burn whatsoever. I highly recommend taking a run to Woodbridge and getting it right from the source.
