Poured from a growler that was acquired by a good friend a couple of days before sampling. Slightly phenolic aromas mixed in with soft malt aromas, light carbonation kicked up a whisper of foam when poured. Super light color reminiscent of a massed produced german lager. Up front clove and cinnamon flavors dominated which were overtaken by biscuity malt flavor on the backend and cleaned out by hop dryness. Didn't get any belgian aspects to the alcohol flavors except phenolics - no fruity esters or spicy alcohol which makes me wonder if a belgian yeast strain was used at all. Not very drinkable to me due to the phenolic character dominating the flavor profile.

3.46/5 rDev -9.7%

Poured from bottle into snifter
Appearance- pours a hazy gold with a short, creamy, bubbly head which recedes quickly and leaves some minor lacing.
Aroma- faint spice and citrus, bready, yeasty
Feel- medium, oily, little carbonation tingle, and finishes crisp but very smooth
Taste- taste follows the nose, to a degree- less malty, more spicy/citrusy with a hint of banana towards the end
Overall- This being my first beer in the Belgian style realm, i liked it a lot. It's not that heavy of a beer and very drinkable. That being said, it isn't too complex, which I believe makes it good for those who want to get into Belgian style ales.

Got to try on tap fresh from the brewery the other day and I thought it was very nice. The appearance was a hazy yellow with a decent head. The smell had a lot of wheat and banana to it. The taste was similar with great notes of banana, and even a little bit of spice. The feel of the beer was a little light but refreshing in the heat. Would definitely get again.
