3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy pale gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy white head. Aroma of cereal, toast, spicy and fruity yeast, stone fruit, light funkiness, nice fruity and spicy hops, tart floral notes and light breadiness. Flavor is cereal, sweet malt, a little toast, stone fruit, light vinous notes, nicely forward citrus, floral and spicy hop notes, a little sweet, white bread crust and a sweet malt, citrus and spicy (like Styrian Goldings) hops. Medium body, juicy, syrupy and slightly chalky feel and light, but sharp and blanketing carbonation leading to a surprisingly clean, crisp and off dry finish. Really tasty stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from the 4-pack of bottles (says bottled 12/13/13) nice orangy gold, smells clean which is odd for a Belgian. Get the sweet up front and the dry at the end. This beer has everything I like about Belgian strong without the ass taste that I don’t, but usually get. Very well done and strong.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours a hazy golden with a medium white head, and the aroma blends citrus hops with light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, slightly umami, and slightly sweet with a strong hop flavor in addition to their bitterness. The aftertaste is a long-lasting version of the initial flavor. The texture is nearly oily, but the bubbly carbonation and light body help balance all the other elements into a very pleasant package.
