Clear deep golden color pour has a dense, small-bubbled frothy white head with nice lacing. Aroma of sweet Belgian malt with a touch of caramel candy sugar and some light fruity esters. Body starts rich and pale malty sweet with some stickiness and complex Belgian yeasty balance toward a slightly bitter, doughy finish. A nicely done strong Belgian golden.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2010
Tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Slight hazed pale golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is quite light. A touch of soft wheaty malt as well. Lightly bready and crackery base malt along with some soft Belgian spice. The yeast contribution is quite restrained. Light pear esters and a kiss of honey. Its really dry on the finish. Its a solid attempt at the style but its just a little too restrained on the yeast front.
