Had this at the Fred a few weeks ago and did not take any notes, however I do remember it being one of the best beers I had that evening, and in a long while. In fact, I had another one the very next day at The Brickstore. My friend from Wales was extremely impressed as he had a second one the next day at Leon's.
I agree with Ding that the appearance is not of a Belgian Pale, however, that did not distract from my admiration for this beer. Spicy, fruity, and very flavorful. It was a beer that I hated to finish as it got better as it got warmer.
I am very excited that another good beer is/will be brewed locally.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
