pours a deep, golden orange with fluffy white head. aroma is sweet candied citrus fruits, yeast, and citrus hops. taste starts with more candied fruit - like orange or apricot jam - along with spice, biscuit, and some light caramel notes. citrusy hops start to show up in the finish, with just a bit of tartness. syrupy and resinous. very enjoyable.

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.

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.
