3.28/5 rDev -13%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Got this at my favorite local pub a few months ago and was poured into a Kwak glass complete with wooden holding aparatus. I'm very clumsy and of course I spilled it after only a few drinks so I picked up a single bottle to give it another go. Poured into a Unibroue tulip.
Excellent head-at least two fingers. Maintained nicely settling down but still across the entire top. Hazy amber color. Nice medium carbonation.
Graham cracker and biscuity aromas fill my nose. Strong banana and clove flavors on first taste which only got stronger as it warmed. More complex than other belgian pales I've had.
I would buy this again-not sure if I missed much not tasting it in it's official glass. All in all very enjoyable.

4.06/5 rDev +7.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass. The label lists the abv at 8.4% abv.
Appearance: This is a very hazy beer with a brownish tan color and a quick fading off white head. A quick swirl is needed to keep some foam on top. Lacing is minimal and very slick.
Smell: Right up front there is a big raisin like fruity sweetness. This is backed up by bready yeast and malt notes.
Taste / Palate: Now on the tongue the bready Belgian yeast notes hop out first. Dark fruit, raisins, plums and apples move in with sweet maltiness. In the middle there is an attempt by the hops to come out and play but the yeast notes and malt notes and now some sweet boozy notes hold out and finish strong. The body feels smooth with lots of fine carbonation. Just right for a big Belgian Ale.
