Lots of yeast and fruit in the aroma. Appearance is golden, cloudy, with a thick persistent white head. Medium body and quite high carbonation, the taste is quite sweet, with more fruit and spices. Overall an excellent beer, very drinkable despite the high alcohol content.

Taste is medium dense weizen yeast flavors, consistent with the scents. Mouthfeel is amazing creamy and lightly peppery. Finish is clean water. Fantastic.

Cerveja de coloração clara pouco alaranjada e levemente turva com espuma generosa e persistente. Sabor frutado e levemente apimentado. Com bastante lúpulo e sabor equilibrado com final acentuado.

Poured into a trappist chalice. I was expecting a big frothy head but the bottles I tried poured a thin white head that fizzled out but left some nice lacing in the glass. The aroma is malty with some light fruit and some minimal alcohol as well. The taste is yeast with a little bit of sour fruit notes. Nice bubbly and crisp feeling on the palate. Over all a very nice brew.

Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes a clear dark gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, yeast, and spice. Taste is banana, tropical, malt, yeast, coriander, and a bit of alcohol. Very good.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Pours clear golden with good white head. Aromas of bittering hops, light malts and lemon. Taste is of lagery malt, Belgian yeast with more banana than pepper. Very refreshing and easier drinking than duvel. Finish is medium dry and slightly bitter.
