On the pour, go easy, and expect a massive, frothy, cappuccino-like head. The beer itself is a murky honey color, while the head gives off an orange glow. The bouquet on this beer is as good as it gets for the style (billed as a Strong Belgian Pale Ale, we find it sort of straddles the line between that style and a Trappist Tripel and a Pacific Northwest IPA). Complex and highly distinctive, expect a highly aromatic hoppiness, with notes of pine & spruce, rose petals, orange zest, kumquat (yes, we said kumquat) and peach. Sweet malty grains fill the background but are overshadowed by perfumy, floral & citrus notes. The flavor, by contrast, is rather tame, though moderately complex, with a surprising dryness given the high alcohol content. Look for notes of spicy pepperiness, various citrus notes (orange oils), rose hips, rounded out by a brut-like champagne character. Finishes firmly bitter with herbal/green hops as the absolutely lush, supersoft feel in the mouth slides away. This beer presents a spectacular balance of sweet, soft, bitter & strong, with a well-masked alcohol content. An extraordinary find, we're thrilled to bring it to you. It may be tough to find, but if you can, seek out a traditional Afghanistanian dish known as Norange Palaw, made with delicately seasoned lamb (or chicken) served under a mound of saffron rice, topped with almonds, pistachios, orange peel strips, Rosewater and cardamom—sinfully delicious.
