Sampled from bottle @ monthly De Molen tasting. A bit hazy yellow color, medium sized white to off-white head. Smell malts, a bit sweetish and herbs or spices. Taste malts, sweetness, herbs or spices. Not really my thing and above all too much carbonation, low to medium body.

Glass: Karl Strauss 26th anniversary tulip glass
From: Trader Joe’s in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Nov. 19, 2015
Consumed: Nov. 19, 2015
Poured a yellow, golden, clear color with three fingers of fluffy, white head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good sporadic, spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent amount of thick retention all the way down. (Sight - 4.25)
Smelled candied Belgian spices, pear, green grapes, green apple, kiwi, grassy hops, honey, herbal hops, cleaning supplies (ammonia?), faint tropical notes (passion fruit?) and slight dry apricot. (Smell - 4.00)
Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose. Got spicy Belgian notes, green apple, pear, honey, grassy hops, boozy candied sugar, peppery Citra rind and boozy, dry ammonia. (Taste - 3.50)
Light-to-medium body. Oily texture. Lively-to-fizzy carbonation. Dry, boozy finish. (Feel - 3.50)
Was a bit disappointed in this one, but glad I finally tried it. Probably overrated it a tad. just an OK Belgian Strong Pale Ale. (Overall - 3.75)

Bottle for Indian night- thanks Cary. Super solid as expected from The Bruery. Pours a nice orangish-golden. Tight and generous white head. Belgian notes upfront and super crisp and clean throughout. Subtle spice and honey/ caramel notes. Finish is dry and floral. Really well done.

On tap. Hazy golden pour with a couple of fingers of foamy white head. A lot of lacing. Aroma of bananas, cloves, yeast, citrus zest, and a little caramel and toffee. Flavors follows, though it’s slightly milder than I expected. Mostly banana, yeast, orange peel, baking spices. Active carbonation leads to a slightly dry finish with a little booziness coming through at the end as well. Could definitely have a few of these.
