2013 bottle.
A: light orange. Medium foamy white head.

S: light aroma of Belgian yeast. Clove. Banana (slight).

T: bready malt. Belgian yeast profile. Followed by hops...citrus and grass.

M: medium high carbonation. Medium-big body. On the dry side.

O: great beer. I usually do not like Belgian pales. This beer is balanced well between malts, hops, and yeast. Will buy again.
