Hell must really like sweet beer. The aroma is of honey which is also on the palate. Sweetness dominates but there is plenty of flavor and a reasonable degree of complexity. This beer seems much lighter than the actual alcohol content but the added texture from alcohol is evident. If you like silky, sweet wheat beers, this is for you.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 oz. bottle. Pours a thick, very well retained white head, with extensive lacing, over a hazy, gold (SRM 5) body.....nose is light malts, with pear, hints of apple, hints of pepper....taste is slight sweet to start, then light pear, slight lemon, leading to a moderately dry spice finish.....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation adds clean acid. This is a very nice version of a Belgian Golden Strong. It has the huge, well retained head, with appropriate lacing, a flaw is the clarity. Aromas and flavors are both appropriate as is the mouth feel. BJCO 8/2/16/4/8
