Aroma is certainly sweet and fruity as one would expect, but a bit different. I detect a note of melon there. Maybe a little tropical. Papaya??

Pours a golden color in my glass with a nice head at first but is goes down fairly quickly. Lacing is fair.

Taste is certainly...sweet. Lots of sugary sweetness, and different fruity esters found here. Melon perhaps. A little tropical. Apricot?? Boozy on the back, owing to its 11% ABV. Thick even by Belgian standards. Warming after only one.

Packs a punch and doesn't taste bad by any stretch but not among my favorite Belgians.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Light Golden and cloudy appearance with an immeadiate frothy and fast head.

Smell - fruity tones and I get some banana smells as well.

Taste - cirtus and banana, carbonation is good, somewhat hoppy aftertaste it might be the higher alcohol content that is giving me that taste.

Mouthfeel - Good carbonaton, kind of a tart feel to it.

Overall - The taste grows on me as I drink more of the beer the initial taste threw me off a bit. I enjoy this beer for what it is trying to be not how I personally feel about the beer.
