Big creamy head, with a cloudy, almost wheat beer look. Slightly sweet spiced aroma. Body is a nice balance of spice, citrus notes and sweetness to balance the alcohol. A very enjoyable brew.

Hazy dark yellow, hint of orange, aggressive head. Yeasty aroma with some interesting notes of fruit and spice. Flavor matched, with a good blast of orange and tangerine dominating before a dry, spicy finish. A very nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours an effervescent yellow, large frothy white head, with tremendous amounts of carbonation. As I released the cage the cork literally blew off the bottle. Quite spicy on the nose. Hints of yeast and flora as well. Forwardly spicy, light in body, with a spritzy mouthfeel. Finishes with a yeasty, somewhat musty flavor along with the spices. Good head retention, attractive lacing, but the carbonation was a bit too *burp* lively.   Still pretty darn good tho!

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Undated 11.12 oz bottle. Pours a bright orange-red color, quite darker than I expected. Good amount of haziness. Small white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, light malting, and some delicate, perfumy hops. Lightly spicy. Flavor is just about as archetypically belgian ale as I can think of. Perfect delicate balance, yeast used to create a good, complex flavor, but dosent get out of control. Medium body, light bready, caramelly malting. Wonderful.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy light orange color with gigantic head. Poured this into a Tripel Karmeliet glass and boy an I glad I did. Aroma of pepper, yeast amd malt make my mouth water wanting to try this beauty. Nice spicy bite with a mellow peppery spiciness melded together to produce a malty Bgegium goodness. Very well done on their part. I love the subtle intertwining of malt and hops in this. WAY above average. A bit of a thin mouthfeel and a high carbonation make this just below outstanding. Love the way the citrus cuts into the malt. Can you tell I’m lovin’ it?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light orange to yellow body with a fine particled creamy white head. Glass lacing is excellent. Mellow fruity aroma, pears mainly. Straight forward dry pear and yeast flavors. Alcohol is very well hidden, this beer is 8%! Medium body. Quite drinkable. Nothing really stands out but this is a well put together beer.
