12-oz. bottle into pint glass on Nov. 27, 2012 (purchased for $1.59 at BevMo (with card) in La Mesa, Calif. (San Diego) on Nov. 27, 2012). Golden honey with a finger of white head that dissipated rather quickly. Average retention on the sides (wet) , below average on the top.
Smelled banana, cloves, Circus Peanuts and caramel. I guess coriander is supposed to be in this beer as well, but I’m not sure what that is. Good smelling beer though.
Tasted a lot like the smell, only super strong (alcohol wise). Got the usual banana, cloves and Circus Peanuts candy. Lingering taste of that alcohol late on the tongue.
Light-to-medium body. Thin oily texture. Average carbonation. Long smooth finish.
Really liked this beer from start to finish. Could feel the alcohol, but it all still worked together.

4.06/5 rDev +6.8%

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: pours a clear straw color with slightly higher amount of carbonation, two finger head that dissipated quickly and left a thin layer of bubbles that lasted throughout, there was some lacing present.
SMELL: molasses, pears, banana and the Coriander spice really dominates with some Belgian funk.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose, it's initially sweet molasses with some spice and funky Belgian bread then some lingering hops, the alcohol 7.8% is perceptible but well disguised.
PALATE: full bodied with higher carbonation.
OVERALL: this is a very good beer and reasonably priced, it's not the best I've had for the style but for the price I would not hesitate to buy again.
