10/9/2016 -- from notes: 22oz bottle, shared with Steph S. Part of the Encore re-release series. Bottled 7/22/16. This is basically a bigger-bodied, hoppier witbier. A little spicy, little slick, but solid and enjoyable overall. Steph really liked it. Strykzone (7854) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2018
Bottle. Clear golden with a bit of amber hue. A white head is three fingers. Aroma is Belgian yeast and resembles a trippel. Flavor begins with alcohol heat. Fruit cake with pepper and coriander. A hint of metal. Somehow this is a Trippel meets malt liquor. JoeMcPhee (10189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2017
A gift from my lab - many thanks. Pale golden orange. The aroma is a bit fruity and orange with a nice peppery yeasty spice and a touch of clove and allspice. Slightly peppery and a bit alcoholic with a touch of lemon and light stone fruit. Dry and fairly peppery with a nice lean bitterness. Good balance with a nice spicy hoppiness. Really well-balanced and tasty. Absolutely rock-solid Belgian strong ale.

Pours a cloudy peach, big coarse head, a sparkling appearance. Belgian yeast heavy, banana, coriander. Spritzy but somehow a chewy flavor. Pepper, spiced pear, banana cream, clove, mild grasses. A fun, summery take on the style.
