Golden raisin and brandy notes in aroma, almost Chardonnay-like. Perfect golden color, just-right amount of head. Hint of orange and coriander, but heavy alcohol bite. Moderate mouthfeel, alcohol level makes it somewhat thin.

on draft. extremely well-done belgian beer. a lively pour which yields traditional yeast aroma as well as floral, spice, citrus, and orchard scents. The flavor continues from there, with waves of flavor following one after the other. the body supports the flavor, which continues long after the sip is through.

From the RBSG growler which was labeled as a tripel. I guess that’s more accurate than Belgian blonde and Belgian strong ale. Almost clear, yellow in color. Very spicy nose, with some midlly sweet pears and acetone smells. Tastes quite hot, crisp, sickly thick and sweet, more acetone than is ever needed, too medicine-like overall, but drinkable.
