Bottled in March 2014

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a clear light golden yellow topped by a finger and a half of dense whie head which retains well and leaves some lacing
S: Smells of cracker like malts, doughy bread, and orchard fruits with some pear like notes. Slight spice as well.
T: Taste is orchard fruits and some white pepper with some dry pale malts and bread dough. Really strong fruity esters with a little banana but mostly orchard fruits. Swallow is spice and slight yeast with a hint of band aids with some lingering apples and pears.
M: This beer has a moderate amount of body with a slightly slick feel on the palate. Carbonation is effervescent but not prickly while the beer has a drying finish.
O: Overall this beer drinks surprisingly well for being over four years old. Tons of flavor and a good amount of complexity. It hides the age well and desn't show any off notes or hints of oxidation. This is worth a try if you like the style and can find it.

750 ml bottle poured into a snifter

Pours a deep rich gold color with no head retention, lots of tiny bubbles streaming up the glass's side and middle. Lots of sweetness, fruits, bubble gum, hints of spice and Belgian yeast. Nice balance of sweetness and spice, touch of spice along with fruitiness, Belgian yeast notes like banana, honey, and the finish has lingering notes of bubblegum and spice like coriander, really tasty. Mouthfeel is full bodied with lots of carbonation, very dry finish, carbonation gives it a smooth mouthfeel that rolls over the palate.

Overall, a great tasting example of the style, great balance of spice and sweetness, I'll probably seek this out again if I'm ever in the mood for this style of beer.

This was actually a really good Belgian Style, which I typically do not prefer. I am however a fan of this beer.

Definitely a great quality beer, a lot going on as far as flavor( almost overwhelmed with different spices and fruits). Every sip was something new. Not a beer i would drink a lot of but definitely recommend if you haven't already. A-
