Pours a golden fizzy yellow with a huge white head. Smells of sweet malts, estery with a bit of Belgian spices. Taste of sweet grains apples and citrus and a bit of sweet candied sugar. Big Belgian yeast character on this one. Finishes extra dry and clean.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a thick white head. Smells of grains and fruits with a little bread. Flavor is primarily bread with banana and a hint of pepper to it. Mouthfeel is light and very effervescent. Dry like a decent red wine. Overall a fine Belgian Strong Pale Ale.
