The nose is flowery and promising. But the taste is so mild, it’s almost non-existent after the big scents. Left me asking "Am I crazy, or is there no flavour?"

16oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Aroma of caramel malts, some light fruit, spices, and a hint of alcohol. I’m not sure how good this bottle is because the texture seems a little off. Flavor sweet with hints of caramel and banana and Belgian yeast. Very little hops flavor. Pretty good beer, but there are a lot of better ones.

Bottle. Light hay for the malt, medium to heavy lemon and perfume for the hops, moderate horse blanket for the yeast, with a hint of white wine. Head is large, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear, but hazy on the last pour, yellow. Flavor starts slightly sweet and moderately to heavily acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A very light and sprightly Belgian Strong Ale with a pretty unique hop profile.

16oz ceramic flip-top bottle -
Pretty decent beer here, although the price-tag is a bit off-putting. Nearly $10 for a pint of this just isn’t worth the price of admission. Aroma is grainy, slightly sweet with dose of hay, pear and apple juice. Flavor is mildly sweet, decent floral hopped flavor, light bubblegum and some faint citrus. Finish is a bit noticable with the alcohol. Body is a slightly hazy golden hue with a dense off-white 2" head. Again, nice but not for the sticke price.
