    [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.

    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.
