From a 750 Belgian bottle. Pours a pale, dusty gold color with a huge rocky head. Definite Belgian beautiful funk aroma, peppery spices with hints of earthy citrus. Pleasantly spicy mouthfeel with lingering citrus flavors. Excellent. monk191 (2007) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 28, 2013
A good golden Belgian. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a lot of head, but dissipates quickly. Smells of nectarines and cherries. Taste is similar, nectarine or apricot with a little bit of a boozy finish.

From the caged, corked 750 ml. bottle. The label says open with care but the pop of the cork was fairly mild compared to some with plenty of carbonation smoke bursting from the top of the bottle. The color is golden yellow, a bit cloudy, and with a long lasting foamy white head. Aroma of pale malts, Belgian yeast, pear, and a low hop character. The body is full. The taste is sweeter than traditional abbey stongs with a slightly heightened dry hop bite on the rear Overall a nice creation from Sierra Nevada. gringo332 (640) - Richardson, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Draught. Golden pour with white head. Nose is fruity, peppery, clove and esters. Flavor is esters, banana, fruit. Very clean beer. Lively carbonation. backdaft (286) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Bomber. Pours a clear golden/yellow clear with a huge thick white head. Aroma is sweet,floral,and spicy. Tastes the same. Some nice yeasty sourness is present with the bottom swirl. Crisp, medium mouthfeel with above average carbonation. The alcohol (ABV 8.5%) is hidden well making this pretty easy to drink. An easy Belgian for my friend to try.

Nice pour with big thick white head. Citrus and spice combine for a great nose. The taste is similar but the alcohol is prevalent. Overall it is a good, tasty beer. scooterbub (1067) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - FEB 5, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a light golden with a decent white head that lasts. Lots of carbonation. Taste is of wood, fruit, yeast, raisins, grass and spice. Similar, but cleaner aroma. Has a nice body. The finish is a bit woody, slightly dry and a touch warming. Has a clean aftertaste. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. One of the few bigger beers that I would pick up again.
