3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very nice hazy golden. Estery and very Belgian aroma, spicy, earthy, pear, banana. Some citrus and clove in the mouth, more spices. Again, very Belgian. The bubbles were a bit aggressive for me. Very nice, and more concentrated than a corresponding Belgian, but also more $$$.

Backlog from lost & found notes: Aroma of sweet fruit, grass and slight booze. Taste is oily christmas fruits with smooth marmelade. yeast notes. Pleasant and mild but still with an attitude.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Cork shot off hard into my hand upon uncaging. Took a while to fully pour. Pours hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 3 finger dense and rocky off white head with insane retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy/peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, grape, pepper, clove, wheat, honey, biscuit, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming lingering after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic Belgian strong pale ale style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notas intensas a levadura, dejando de fondo cítricos y especias.
Color dorado pálida con notable turbidez. Cuerpo ligero, carbonatacion media, Corona de espuma abundante de media retención.
En boca equilibrada con las notas a levadura que destacan.
Al paladar son notas muy equilibradas entre dulzor de la malta y amargor del Lúpulo. Nuevamente ls levadura da el toque predominante, sin embargo las notas cítricas principalmente a naranja dejan muy buen sabor.
En general es buena cerveza, en la cual no se percibe la potencia alcohólica, las notas cítricas dan muy buen sabor pero las notas a levadura son demasiado intensas.

Aroma of fruity esters, yeast, citrus, spices, ripe fruits, malt, hint of grapefruit, floral notes, orange peel, hoppy notes. Flavour is sweet and a bit tart with a moderate bittersweet finish. Wonderfully complex. Belgian Triple ish but also has Saison characteristics. Any way, I loved this beer.

A bottle is opened with a huge bang. A beer is fuzzy, beuatiful light yellow colour, a head is huge and white. Aroma has flowers, fresh fruitness, oranges, some raspberries, spicyness and pepper. Taste is strongly spicy, fruits, also lots of citrusfruits and some sourness, bitterness in the end. Medium bodied, easy to drink. The great beer, complex, aromatic fruitness and harsh spicyness.
