This looks great, pours great, and is really pleasant. I didnít find it hoppy at all. I noticed a persistent sweetness both in the taste and in the aroma that made this a nice beer to drink.. So to recap : Iíve got a lovely pouring, and looking beer with a head and lacing. Iíve got a fine mouthfeel and a muted low level of bitterness, but a beer that has a really low and persistent sweet note. It has a great aroma.
All the things that should make this a spectacular beer. What it does have in spades is no indication at all about how much alcohol youíre quaffing, because this is a quaffing beer,
I like it, I donít love it. and Iíd love it again when Iím next in the store stocking up .

Pours a slightly murky straw-golden color with tiny vegetable particles suspended in the beer. A short white head is noted. Texture is a little oily Sweet lemon nose. Clean flavor of how lemon furniture polish smells. Nice lingering bitterness. Probably accentuated by the alcohol I note.

Wheat, lemon oil, flowers, ginger, lemon-poppy seed muffin, and a touch of herbal funk in the aroma. The taste is unexpectedly sharp, with wheat, pale ale hops, and lemon peel. There are some Belgian elements for sure, but the hops are more assertive than in your usual abbey ale. Good.

Back home from California, bomber with Zachary , pours a golden clear pour , effervescent with a nice foamy wispy head. Nose is sweet with a mixture of floral and fruity notes, quite pleasant . Taste is sweet , citrusy and hoppy and bathes the palate pleasantly. Flavorful and delicious. Finish is sweet , could passa as a sparkling wine or champagne. Nice. Quaff Score 8 / 10

I really like this "belgium" style strong ale.
Clean aroma with hoppy fruity yeastees at the finish. And the Rose. Nice head that dissipates to a thin lace at the edges.
Beautifully color on the light side of "belgium" style strong ales and more on the side of tripels.
Great taste in the middle of the tongue that doesnít go away. Carbonation is consistent and the taste is yeast rose yeast hop alcohol with a tiny touch of malt.
I really really like this one, and mention ST rarely fails to deliver and this one is no exception.
