A beautiful amber pour with 2 fingers of white head and great lacing. Smells of herbal grassy hops, bell peppers, saison style grain bill with a hint of sweet caramel.
The flavor is very sweet and grassy. A hoppy Belgian ale with lots of bite. Mouthfeel is creamy for the style, high carbonation, medium body. A funky yet hoppy Belgian ale. Delicious all around.

This brew was way too sweet for my taste. My favorite brew is a DIPA, so I guess that I am a hop head. I bought a six pack of this beer with the intriguing name and gave away 5 of the bottles. I guess I will never again try a beer that has "Belgian style" on the bottle.

Poured this baby into a goblet and it's looking good. The body has a beautiful neon whiskey hued amber with a fine frosting of dense creamy foam.
The aroma is all Belgian; hard candy, spices, and exotic fruit.
The flavor up front is all sweet malt, and rock candy followed by onslaught of intense hop bitterness. Nice balance we have here.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied and the high ABV is completely hidden.
Overall this is a great brew--not for beginners, amateurs, posers, BMC only dullards, toddlers, dabblers, or anybody unaffiliated with serious beer. This would be too good for them.
