Any of the Trader Joe beers are drinkable but nothing to get too, too excited about. This is different. Nice golden hazey colour with a light white head. Fruity, Honey, fresh bread aroma. Beautiful hard fruit mouth. Apple, pear taste. Cloves and butterscotch after taste. Mild pleasant bitterness. This is a really good Belgian ale worthy of world class brews! Bravo Trader Joes!

Green apple, pear skin, biscuity malt, honey sweetness, and floral tones form the complex aroma. Notes of honeysuckle, white pepper, and orange emerge. Flavor reveals citrus undertones of tangerine, lemon, and sour orange, with softer notes of pear and apple offering contrast. More sour than expected, but the lightly toasted malt takes hold mid palate and carries into a dry, slightly peppery finish, accompanied by coriander. Excellent beer for 6 bucks!

Not bad Trader Joe's, not bad. Nice smoky yet sweet taste, good golden color, and some spices to go along. Great for the fall. A little frothy pouring out, but other wise a solid beer that I enjoyed.
