First had: on tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA

Not too bad of a Belgian-style ale, but not overwhelming. Poured a golden yellow color with a small, white, patchy layer of a head. Yeasty aroma, with scents of clove and banana. Taste followed the yeasty smell, but was a bit on the sweet side, with slight undertones of honey, pear, orange, and mild spice. Lots going on, but nothing really came to the forefront in a meaningful way. Light-medium body, and somewhat drinkable, but one glass was enough.

Appears a semi transparent gold with a small white cap that slowly fades into a mild cap. Scattered streaks of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of heavy Belgian yeast phenols with clove and allspice standing out. Some plastic, fresh bread, and Belgan Pale/witbier base are becoming evident.
Taste is of the aromas with a poached pear and apple flavor immediatel jumping out..
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, spritzy, semi sweet, and sugary with a yeasty finish.
This actually reminds me of Celis' grand Cru with a hint of orange and spice.

3.4/5  rDev -4%

Hazy peach colour with a thin, off-white head. Just a little lacing was observed throughout. Strong banana and clove aromas with a bit of bready yeast. There was also a bit of solventy alcohol that was apparent as it warmed - that dropped the score a bit. The flavour was a bit milder with a richer malt component. Still quite spicy, with a bit of apple in addition to banana. In fact, the spiciness was a little cloying in the finish and the bitterness was a little sharp at this point too. Medium/full bodied with generous carbonation. The texture was a little slick. Not a bad experiment.
