Pours clear, gold, with 1/4 inch head. Plenty of sediment is present. Taste is honeysuckle and tea, banana, wheat, and Belgian spices. To me this is about as good as it gets in this style from an American brewery. I would have several six packs of this beer in my fridge if I could get it regularly. Worth seeking out.

12 oz bottle from Tower in Atlanta. No date despite a place on the label. Served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours amber with a small, short-lived head. Excellent clarity.

Aroma: apple juice, floral and fruity yeast effects.

Flavor: Belgian yeast (mainly banana and clove); light baked bread in the finish; light spices; hint of honey(suckle?).

Feel: medium body and crisp carbonation.

O: a quality Belgian style ale.

12oz. Fairly bright gold pour, about a finger of white head.

Aroma, quite a bit of banana, clove. Some sweeter nutmeg and malt. A little spice, pepper, some herbal like hops.

Taste, swetter malt and some grainy wheat type malt. Clove and bubblegum. Some yeast and the lightest barnyard flavors. Finish is fairly dry, light herbal hops in the finish.

Pretty refreshing and easy to drink. Carbonation is lively, about right body wise, in between light and medium. Maybe a tad watery. Abv is certainly well hidden.
Wish it was a little more pale, but this was pretty enjoyable. More like a big blonde ale.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. Bottleneck says Best By: 10/26/13

A- Pours a hazy orangeish golden color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind on the glass. Sediment on the bottom of the bottle is indicative of bottle-conditioning.

S- Big burst of Belgian yeast brings lots of banana notes. Slightly soapy and perfume-like.

T- Flavor brings much of the same with some added spice and citrus notes. The yeast is strong but the alcohol flavor isn't which is nice. Pretty straightforward and not very complex which is fine.

M- Sharp and oily with medium carbonation and a body leaning to the fuller side.

O- A surprisingly solid Belgian from a brewery that hasn't impressed me up until now.
