Draft at Plan B West Hartford. Pours yellow with a thin white head that leaves trace lacing. Slight bitter spice note on the nose. Tastes like perfumed saison on the tongue. It’s got some bitterness on the finish. Eh!

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 BSA’s aren’t really my thing.
