3.78/5 rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3
Draft from 6-and-Save served in a tulip.
A: a clear amber with little head but visible carbonation. 3.5
S: yeasty and spicy in the nose. 4.0
T: taste follows the nose. Smooth at first, this turns sweet and spicy in the middle, and then a massive amount of banana flavor rushes in on the back end. Significant bittering hops wage war against the spicy yeast all over my tongue. This beer is certainly full-flavored. I just don't think I'm completely in love with this particular combination of spice/bitter/banana. 4.0
M: light and spicy, this beer finishes dry and has good carbonation. 4.0
D: a unique beer, for sure, but I don't find the spiciness to be particularly drinkable. 3.0
Serving type: on-tap

4.45/5 rDev +12.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
APPEARANCE: Very bright, hazy yellow-ish orange with a lovely quarter-inch of white head on top. The head collapses relatively quickly, but leaves some solid lacing.
SMELL: Huge citrus. Orange peel dominoes with a little banana in the mix.
TASTE: That orange flavor is still dominant with a little corriander, banana and clove behind it. Very well balanced with a nice hop bite, but some sweeter caramel malt and fruity yeast.
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with a sweet start and a nice dry finish.
OVERALL: This is a beautiful example of the style. It's what an IPA should be and it's what a Belgian beer should be. Not quite sure how they made both work so well in one beer, but I'd have to say this is one of the better Belgian-Style IPAs I've had.

Poured on tap into a small snifter at Churchkey DC. From notes.
A very cloudy lemon body, quite orb glowing, with a very sudsy and cream bleach white heat. Lots of thick lacing.
Nose is kind of strange. A mushy wet malt sense, and lots of candied sugars. Very sweet smelling, and there's almost a macro like sense of smell to this also. Gets better as it warms up letting some fruit apple and pear and spice. Unfortunately alcohol fusel heat starts to dominate.
First sip is a dry hop bite of pine, with a very light mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Luckily much of the biting alcohol is maksed on the palate with a sense of creamy density to go with the feel. Hop action and sweetness seem to be out of balance, and don't really compliment each other.
Overall it's sort of a weird one, drinkable, but not feeling the love here.
