3.76/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Remember, kids, if it's in a can, pour 2/3rds into your glass, swirl the can vigorously to stir up the yeast that settles at the bottom THEN pour the rest. You'll be rewarded with a nicely cloudy beer and a large head.

A: Properly poured so it has a pale gold, cloudy look about it, starting with a big billowy head, but it quickly dissipates and leaves very, very little lacing.

S: Bananas, clove, a touch of red apple and spice, a twinge of malt, a tiny hit of black pepper, maybe a hint of a farmhouse funk from the yeast. More fragrant than I expected, but not blowing me away.

T: All of the above, with a clean lemony flavor added, very dry crackery malts and a touch of clove at the end to finish. But it's really rather subtle.

M: Far too zippy for me, I like a Belgian ale that feels more rich and velvety, this seemed too highly carbonated for my tastes.

O: A standard because it's always fresh in Florida, a great beer to get into Belgian styles, but nothing groundbreaking.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Canned 4/4/14.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, spice, and yeast aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, spice, yeast, and slight citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth and spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with very earthy aromas and flavors.
