750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 1/31/2012. Pours slightly hazy medium golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passion fruit, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, clove, pine, honey, candi sugar, white bread dough, and biscuit; with lighter notes of toast, banana, bubblegum, herbal, floral, wood, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, candi sugar, and pale malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passion fruit, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, clove, pine, honey, candi sugar, white bread dough, and biscuit; with lighter notes of toast, banana, bubblegum, herbal, floral, wood, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pepper/clove yeast spiciness; and pine, herbal, floral, woody, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, passion fruit, citrus peel/zest, peppercorn, clove, pine, honey, candi sugar, white bread dough, biscuit, toast, banana, bubblegum, herbal, floral, wood, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, candi sugar, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance; and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp finishing. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitter/spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth and moderately creamy/bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 10%. Overall this is a fantastic hoppy Belgian strong pale ale. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/earthy hops, fruity/spicy yeast, candi sugar, and pale malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the big ABV, with the modestly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Great Amarillo, Simcoe, and Saaz profile. Fantastic balance of juicy/earthy hops, Belgian yeast, candi sugar, and pale malts. Light residual sweetness with crisp drying. Very well attenuated, and not overly sweet/heavy for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. This aged wonderfully. Very well attenuated, and not overly sweet/heavy for the ABV.

Bottle (from saveur bier), 2014 vintage. Pours golden with whiteish head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, honey, fruits, citrus, candy, perfumy. Flavor is sweet, bitter and slightly sour, fresh fruits, apples, sugar, malt. Carbonation is rather high. Finish is intense dry bitter with warming alcohol and sweetness. Overall: very nice.

Bottle at the Rate Beer Awards Festival Bottle Share. Thanks to JulienHuxley for finding me to share. Bright, crisp hops in the nose, along with Belgian yeast, lemon, citrus, dough. Flavor is sweet orange and lemon, crisp malt, creackers. Lightly yeasty, with solid bitterness and great lemony fruit. A great New World Belgian Strong. Glad I finally got to try it. Why can’t more North American brewers do Belgian like this?

Golden color with a white head, good duration. Aroma has strong notes spicies with light yeasty hints. Flavor is moderate sweet, strong yeast with a high presence of spicy notes. Light sweetness on palate changing to a mild bitterness in the final.

Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Hazy yellow color, some yeast residu in it, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, lightly yeast, a soft underlying fruityness. Taste lightly malts, yeast, again a subtle light underlying fruityness probably coming from the yeast, slightly alcohol and a slight hint of fruitpeel bitterness. Very balanced, smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Impressive brew, I must admit.
