4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pale orange and gold in appearance with a cap of off-white foam. The aroma is a blend of herbal hops, bready malt and citrus with a little bit of caramel around the edges. The flavor opens up with Belgian yeast, toasted malt and citrus rind along with some brown sugar, tropical fruit and alcohol notes. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and creamy with significant carbonation and more dark sugars and citrus in the finish. Overall, another well-balanced and potent Belgian brew.

Mild, complex flavor. Drinking straight out of the bottle, so unable to judge appearance. Unusual distinction of getting better as it sits (and warms). IBU is a little higher than my preference, but worth another round.

BB 08/04/15. Poured as half a glass of off-white foam over a clear amber coloured liquid. Retained too well, not wanting to diminish. Laced well. Carbonation high and coarse. Aroma of sweet honeyed yeast. Taste very sweet honey-like yeast, a bit sugary, a bit phenolic; alcohol well hidden; too sweet but understandably due to the high alcohol. Light body. Smooth, crisp, but for me too sweet - only one at a time!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Appears a cloudy brown with a frothy inch of head. Yeasty/doughy smell. Mix of bitter and sweet tastes with some saltiness as expected. The full-bodied feel and lively carbonation is exciting. Great beer with a strong character, would be hard to have more than one in a sitting.

Golden with a moderate white covering.
Nose is tangy dark fruits, spice, candied fruit peel, light booze, sugars.
Taste comprises yeast esters, dates, candied fruit peel, spice, sugary syrup.
Full bodied, light prickly carbonation which helps keep it drinkable, the alcohol is well integrated.
Ok Belgian strong.

So spicy! I had forgotten that part. Rich, and flavorful, the alcohol adds richness and mouthfeel that I really appreciate.

Good taste, a cool IPA without the bitter of an IPA. Much flavor in a small bottle with good flare to hit the palate!

orange colour. I like the aftertaste and the initial response But it improved considerably with temperature and time. Definitely got the bread dough.
