Fizzy, clear golden, frothy lace - nose of dusty, dry, biscuity malts, some phenolic character, light tartness - taste is light, biscuity, flinty. crackery, peppery - some underlying sweetness - I usually like most of these characteristics in a beer, but this is beer is too strong for its light and crisp flavors, because a strong, boozy/alcoholic character dominates in the long term, and the other qualities of the beer are too delicate and/or weak to support this - alcoholic finish, lingering dry malts - meh.

Actually smells somewhat wheaty. Clear orange but with floaties. The first thought with flavor is that this must have a lot of alcohol, as it shines through. Some nice citrus and floral hops, and definitely lots of belgian sugar, itís okay, but seems too strong.

(Draught) Sampled at the Dog & Pony Alehouse in Renton, WA. Lasting white foam head with a mildly cloudy amber body. Nose is mellow with hops and marzipan. A hoppy front tongue is backed by a flavour of whiskey malt base. Good.

Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Aroma has lots of yeastiness, sugar, light fruit, and a hint of spice. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small whtie head that fades to nothing rather quickly. Flavors of orange peel, light apple, yeast and a spicey finish. Candi sugar present in the background. A tad thin.

in bottle. light golden color. scant white head. traditional belgian yeasty nose. traditional belgian flavor. Flavor runs on the thin side, lacking the complexities one might expect from a full sail belgian.
