3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from an amusing can. Aroma of apricot, sugar, and citrus. Opaque orange-yellow. Starts off sweet, but surprisingly bitter and hoppy. Not dry, however, and unfortunately a bit flat (relatively speaking of course). Not boozey, though it is obviously very strong. Not yet feeling right next door to hell.

One of the better BSAs that i have had in a long time. Good strong alcohol flavor with slight carbonation and an impressive hop taste. Mellow mouthfeel in the middle. Very enjoyable.

12 oz can. Pours a golden orange with a thin white head. Lots of subtle flavors in this one - apricot, coriander, clove, pepper. Alcohol is masked well. Good example of the style.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy orange yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is Belgian yeast, clove, a bit of banana. Pretty straightforward Belgian strong, but done really well. This was a tasty beer. Alcohol is hidden very well so also a dangerous beer.

Pours hazy gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving spider lacing to coat surface. Tropical fruit, caramel and resin aromas. Thick with sweet yeast and caramel upfront turning to biscuit before the lasting tropical fruit and citrus finish.

Can shared by mattyb83 pours a hazy golden with a small off-white head. Intense aroma, strawberry fruit roll-up, big honey, clove, apricot, and coriander. Taste is mellow honey, orange peel, and Belgian spice. Interesting aroma, taste not bad but BSAís arenít really my thing.

Can from Gianni! Thanks for these. Trying this side-by-side with the chardonneighbor of the beast. Hazy, golden honey in color with a small white head. Loads of honey, floral notes, apricot, candy sugar. Intense. Love it. Taste is fruity with more apricot and candy sugar, maybe a touch of honey, some pepper and cardamom. Not overly rich, nice full body, delicious. Best belgian style beer that comes from a can that Iíve ever had. Wow! Iím excited to see what the chardonneighbor is like.

12oz can shared with mattyb83. Pours nice light, straw colored orange with not much of a head. Aroma of hay, grains, candied sugar (think rock candy!), grass, and some sort of fruit(apricots). A lot going on in the aroma. Really intense. Light and clean for a golden, the only thing lacking in the body is some carbonation. Wish there was a little more. Flavors of honey, apricots, sugar in the raw, and bready yeast with just a hair of grass. A very well made beer!
