brokensail (15642) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 17, 2010
A: The pour is a cloudy golden orange color with a nice white head. S: A very fruit forward nose with pineapple, banana, pears, and citrus. Some spicy yeast esters, such as coriander, and a sweet malt aroma. T: Bready malts and sweet candi sugar up front with the yeast and fruit flavors to follow. The same coriander and yeast character as the nose exhibited with some more subdued fruit that leans toward sweet oranges. M: The body is medium with a moderate level of carbonation. D: Really just a nice Belgian style beer, and a good one in a can, I might add. Never once thought this was 9% as I was enjoying the beer.
