When poured from the bottle this develops a mountainous thick head that leaves an incredible amount of lacing on the side of the glass. It's color is a cloudy amber orange. The fine stream of tiny bubbles emanating from the bottle of the glass is very similar to the fine bubbles at the bottom of a glass of good champagne. The aroma is of spice and banana and a hint of nutmeg. This is heavily carbonated and to me this detracts from the overall taste of the beer Given its appearance and aroma I would have expected more flavor rather than the rather thin banana and spice flavor that I experienced. Overall it is a pretty good beer but I think there are several out there that better represent this style.

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.
