750 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy golden amber color with nice 2-3 finger pillowing white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, banana, herbal, floral, pepper, clove, lemon, bubblegum, and yeast spiciness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of lemon, pear, banana, bubblegum, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, earth, biscuit, and yeast spices. Lingering notes of lemon, pear, banana, pepper, clove, biscuit, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of flavors; no cloying flavors at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and prickly mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian strong golden ale. Great complexity and balance of flavors; very smooth and crisp to sip on. Really enjoyed this one.

On tap at The Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy copper with a large creamy white head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is yeast pepper and honey. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet fruity malt and honey with light sweet finish. A good Belgian strong ale from Salt Lake Brewing.

Waxed bomber to oversized snifter. Looks good; golden-orange with good carbonation and white head that dissipates into lacing fairly quickly. smells solid; doughy and Belgiany with a little spice. Tastes sweet, doughy, and Belgiany with a good, semi-dry mouthfeel. Good.

rougeau13 (2727) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours cloudy golden with a huge, resilient, pillowy off-white head. Thick lacing. Aroma of lemon pepper, wheat, bubblegum, barnyard funk, and sweet bread. The taste is quite bland when compared with the aroma. Its a little sweet and yeasty, but thats about it. Medium bodied, ever so slightly dry, fluffy carbonation. Kind of boring.
