Bottle from 4-pack. Pour is beautiful clear light gold. Small fizzy white head dissipates quickly. Aroma of peach, bread and yeast. Tea is subtle. Taste is lightly sweet with a grainy overtones. Moderately dry finish. Effervescent mouthfeel. Body is medium. Better on the cold side where it maintains a crispness. Warming it is a touch sweet. A nice brew. Satisfying and delicious, although it does not lend itself to sessioning.

12 ounce bottle - $3.79 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Bottled on: 05/06/2014

Appearance: BB presents a golden pour, with an ever so slight haziness to it. Has not more than a very, very slim white head.

Smell: With a top note of honeysuckle, there are various tangy fruity esters swirled up with aromatic spice, bready malts, chewing gum, and a drip of alcohol.

Taste: Scantly bready pils malts drizzled with simple syrup ramp up to a range of fruity hints, tasting of orange rind, lemon, apple, and banana dosed with a shot of Prosecco. Cracked clove and a taste of bubblegum follow. On the back half, there's a little honeysuckle, a little alcohol, a little acidity. Fastly drying approaching the lightly crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: A bot over medium-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation. Just a bit of stickiness to it.

Overall: Fairy decent. While not as seamless and graceful as others, it is a solid shot at a honeysuckle infused Belgian-style offering.

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.

First let's take care of business: brewers REALLY need to stop using White Labs Abbey. If they didn't use it in this I'll bite myself. It has become the cliche' of the craft brewing world and it takes over EVERYTHING. I am guessing they were looking to make a lawnmower Belgian and... they got there. Watery with, yet, that slightly abrasive to the roof of the mouth Belgian white sugar sense. and plenty of prickly carbonation: it's just not that interesting, Boring. Watery.

NOW... if they added some spices: zest, coriander. whatever, that might make it more interesting. But still more body would help. I know: abv laws may be the problem. HEY, it's Mississippi. Pilsner malt WAY in the background.

Basically it's that, prickly carbonation and a dominate Abbey yeast-like sense.

It's not bad: just very one dimensional.
