2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Orange like a nectarine. A bruised nectarine. Cloudy and muddled; yellow tinted, soapy and lavish head leaves behind great lace and takes forever to sink. Aroma is peppery... Lots of white pepper. Ashy hops, leafy, some minty bubblegum comes through with clove and fruity esters; must be that Belgian yeast. Taste is is minty, clove, phenolic to the core; Belgian yeast shines here. Chunky, gummy wintergreen with some extra pepper on the back. Ashy hop bitterness. A little too phenolic and a touch medicinal on the back end. Relatively low for the size, though. Medium bodied, not quite syrupy but relatively plentiful. Mid-high carbonation. Hope you like your Belgian ales spicy and minty.

This smells like a sticky monster and it is. In the best use of the word. Sweet with some hot hoppiness. Definitely Belgian yeast flavors in here. The 10.5% abv is not hidden and I consider this a feature. Diggin it. Good stuff.

Dark golden colour & thick white head. Belgium yeast and maltiness on the nose. Candy notes & light stone fruit flavours give way to some burnt taste & alcohol in the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is grapefruit, passionfruit, pineapple, apple juice, straw and lemon grass. Taste is sweet light malts, honey, caramel, dark fruits and yeast. The bitterness is fabulously balanced and full bodied with an earthiness, clove, light tanin, and lemon grass finish. Very slight tanin on the tip to finish. Appearance is a hazy gold/amber body with a thin pearl head that retains well.

Bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with a large, light beige head. Hoppy and somewhat spicy aroma with notes of resinous pine apple, oranges, malt, caramel. Medium to big bodied with high carbonation. Quite crisp with flavors of orange, peach, straw berries, biscuits, toffee and alcohol. Some light background spices. Intense bitterness. Aftertaste has some yeast notes and almonds along with lingering resinous pine apple.

2015-01-12. Hazy dark orange body with a moderate beige head. 3+ Nice hoppy aroma and flavour, moderate bitterness and citrus. enjoyable bitterness grows as you go. Average plus bodied palate. Not super complex but quite drinkable and tasty. Alcohol is surprisingly restrained considering how strong it is. Bottle shared by mds.
