Fruity, Belgian spice nose, showcasing the beauty and magic of the yeast strain. Earthy with some biscuity malts and a light bit of candi sugar. Floral throughout and very drinkable, a little on the tame side, but still well done.

Tap @ Powerhouse. Cloudy, light amber pour with negligible head and no lace. Nose is bananas, light EtOH and ripe fruit. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Bananas, ripe apricots, cocoa and caramel. Finish is short and sweet with a light bitterness.

Large off-white head gently covers the clear copper body. It’s a strong maltiness we’re facing here with potent honey and cereal flavours, mischievously attempted to balance with faint soily and leafy hops. Soft yeast imparted fruitiness hints at fig, grapes and mango all while being quite phenolic. Medium bodied, extremely sweet, perhaps overdone on the candi sugar, even for a Belgian, more hops would be welcome hence the balance suffers.

Mildly carbonated, tangerine colored brew. Easy amber malt aroma with some herbalness and yeastiness. Enticing and intriguing. Prominent breadiness with yeasty sourness on finish. The body ends a bit syrupy and the residual sugars clang with the yeast.

If your looking for a brew that slaps you in the face with its alcohol content then you will enjoy this beer. Typically limited availability brewed once or twice a year. Fruity, yeasty, heavy handed. I like to think of it as the John Bonham of beers POW!

Some times I am a man of few words. This beer was OK.
