Pours a rich golden color with a frothy white foam. Lots of belgian yeasty esters, round apple, peppery spice and a grassy hop bitterness. Huge complexity in the palate yet still balanced with a fine line between, sweet, peppery and tangy... interesting beer that is a must try !

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2 ounce bottle dated April 2012. Poured into a La Trappe chalice. Pours a translucent gold with a thick, velvety head of white foam. The aroma is grassy, peppery, mildly fruity, and has a nice orange zest thing going on that I’m enjoying. The grassy notes are also a fun little twist. Fairly light and refreshing on the palate. Sweeter initially, but dries out and has a rounding bitterness to the finish. Not what I was expecting, but in the best of ways.

Dorée trouble, effervescence forte, mousse très abondante. Amertume houblonnée et herbeuse, bonnes notes d’agrumes, un rien de poivre. Classique mais des plus agréable.

Ar: Juicy peach and tart citrus - some hay and herbal hops.
Ap: Clear straw gold, with some yeast particulates - large white head with good retention and chunks of foam left on the side of the glass as it recedes.
T: Bitter orange and ripe peach - clean alcohol and herbs - medium bitterness, with a very herbal flavor - clean, sweet cracker malt - juicy fruit and lingering bitterness on the finish.
P: Medium-light body with very high carbonation - finish is very dry.
O: Great fruity esters going on, and a tasty background maltiness - austere hop profile that really carries through to the finish - very nice.
