4.43/5  rDev +9.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

Purchased single bottle from Martignetti"s

Appearance = Average looking translucent golden yellow-brown. Not much head or lacing. Nice color

Smell = Fruity and spicy.Can smell the alcohol but it fits well. Bit of a soapy scent which knocks it down a bit. I hope it tastes better.

Taste = Delicious Belgian pale ale. Really smoothe and thick on the mouth. Alcohol does not overwhelm in the least and is barely noticable. Instead flavors of bananna, cloves, and wheat are accentuated. This is one of the better Belgian pale ales Ive tried. Highly recommended

Overall = I vwas very impressed with this one and definitely hope to sample more of North Coasts beers. Theyve just started distributing in Boston so I cant wait.

4.34/5  rDev +7.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Orangish-yellow, cloudy. Head disappeared quickly, no lacing.

Smell: Malt, yeast, spices and honey.

Taste: Floral, good yeast and fruitiness; melons and pears?

Mouthfeel: Low carbonation. kind of dry.

Overall: Very tasty. Being my third or fourth Belgian, I'm starting to find that I really enjoy this style the more I drink it. Hides the 7.6% abv very well.
