3.73/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Had at The Village Tavern in Alpharetta, GA on 1/29
Served in a pint glass

A: This beer pours a hazy honey color with a two finger of white head (waitress gave me my second one for free because she screwed up the pour!). Head retains nicely leaving a decent amount of sticky spider webbed lacing.

S: Nose is sweet caramel malt, spices - clove predominantly, and a hint of pear and apple.

T: Taste starts with a good deal of belgian spices. More coriander than clove which is the opposite of the nose. Caramel malts come in as an undertone, with a touch of yeast. Finish is apple, pear, and banana with a touch more of coriander spicing.

M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, light, prickly, with a touch of a slick finish.

O: Goes down ok, tasty, not too filling, well hidden kick, ok representation of style. First pour, I didn't think that I would get another. The bartender poured me another before I could switch... found after the second one that I liked it far better...

3.53/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

big thanks to barrelandzachary for sending this my way along with a slew of others from this brewery (including some draft only offerings and properglassware).

Enjoyed from a wild heaven snifter.

a - brew poured a deep murky orange with a generous two fingers plus of frothy foamy head that was massive and chunky and left huge milkshake like lacing on the glass. head had really nice retention.

s - nose is fairly classic to style and on the sweet side (which is amazing since this is brewed without sugar). bubblegum and bananan...belgian sugar, some sweet grain.

t - a bit more spicey than the nose suggested...reminiscent of the trader joe beers that unibroue brews for TJs. again, big banana and bubblegum but tempered with white pepper, safe, and clove. a bit heavy on the pepper.

m - not as creamy as authentic BSPA, but above avg for an american take. heavy carbonation without being overdone.

o - overall, not a bad BSPA but far from the top...a bit too spicey for my tastes and seems to be a borderline tripel lite. ok but my least fav of the 4 beers i got to try from thus fine brewery.
