    [Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

    The pour was a murky gold with a light brown hue and a small (1 finger or less) white fizzy head that diminished rapidly down to a thin film with a small collar, which did create some fair runny lacing.

    The aroma was of a light grain malt and a musty doughy yeast with notes of apple, pears, banana and a hint of spice.

    The taste was very malty with a nice fruity ester from the beginning, and then progressed with a strong yeast presence and a mild spicy bitterness towards the end. The flavor lingered for an average amount of time after the swallow, with a mild alcohol warming sensation at the very end.

    Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a ticklish carbonation.

    Overall this was a somewhat light Strong Ale both in body and in flavor, although it does offer an exceptionally smooth drinkability...

    Delicious Belgian. One of the better ones I’ve had. Aroma was very weak, though, but mostly yeast. Pour was a cloudy light orange with no head at all. Taste was delicious with small bubbles and heavy carbonation. Sweet honey, yeast and some pepper and spices in there as well. Semi-dry finish. Nice.

    Sampled @ Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Went back three times. Great Balance for everyday consumption. Compare to Duvel. Light
