I was happy to see this on the shelf at my local (Cap N Cork in Los Feliz, Los Angeles). Haven't been lead wrong yet by the good people at Pizza Port / Lost Abbey.

It pours a straw color with the slightest of head. Aroma is clove, Belgian yeast and maybe even elderberry. The sweetness in the nose was far more subtle and complex in the taste. I got some lemon zest and honey in the mouth.

For the alchohol content, this was extremely drinkable - I wonder how this would age.

1 PINT 9.4FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
Bottled 12/4/12

A - This beer is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It is topped with a mountain of fluffy, white head. Chunks of foam cling to the sides of the glass.

S - I get light fruit notes. Pear comes to mind. I smell some spices as well.

T - The taste follows the smell. I get spices and pear. I do get a little alcohol.

M - Moderate

O - It is a nice beer, but it is not outstanding for the style. The taste and smell are a bit on the weak side. It drinks easily though.
