Poured into a Carter's brewery pint glass.

A: Pours a dark golden color lookin like a boss. Beautiful white puffy head, great retention, definitely a belgian.
S: Big yeasty ester aroma. To me, its a wet dream of belgian beer aroma. Big banana, apple, and a hint of citrus. traces of clove and spice mixed in.
T: Big assault of yeast, spice and fruit. huge character of sweet citrus and herbal hops. lovely, oh so lovely. killer beer. Alcohol sets in mid-palate to finish and leaves a mild bready yeast after note.
M: Strong carbonation and huge body. large personality in this brew
O: Definitely a killer beer. Puts most beers, including belgians, to their knees. beautiful aroma of everything that begians stand for. Taste is huge with a prodigious amount flavor. Hops, sweet banana, and yeast. well worth the dollar to buy it. i approve this message

Poured into a snifter. No readable freshness date.

A- Pours a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains decently before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and spackled surface foam.

S- Belgian yeast, some light fruit and wet cardboard. Slightly effervescent with a bit of alcohol fume.

T- Some banana notes, citrus and a tad of spice. More Belgian yeast comes through and everything balances out enough to make it plenty drinkable.

M- Crisp and semi-sharp with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Pretty standard for a BSPA but enjoyable enough to get high marks.

Not bad but I was not that impressed either. Poured a hazy straw gold color into my Chimay goblet. Medium size delicately bubbly white head that fades fairly quickly but leaves a covering on the top of the glass and a few clumps of head at the rim of the glass. Lacing is small flecks on the sides of the glass.

Aroma is mild, not much in the way of fruit, but there is a good yeasty aroma and some grassy hoppiness.

Taste is more of the same. It is light and pleasant but it could use a bit more complexity, especially some rich light fruit and some more robust spicing.

Mouthfeel is rich, The grassy hops are a nice touch.

Refreshing, a nice light sipping beer but this is no Duvel.
