Got it as a Christmas gift; consumed on 12/28/13. First full review here on BA, so I believe this new release is quite fresh.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy golden with a small white head.

S: Florally and spicy over bready malt. Cloves and banana are in the house.

T: First impression: it's surprisingly "clean" giving the yeasty nose. After a couple sips, however, I get more of the funkier, yeasty flavors. Foundation of bread doughy malt. Clove and generic spice follows. Finishes fairly clean with lingering spicy-ness and a touch of lemony bitterness and floral hops. Heat is felt in belly, though the 7% ABV is not noted on the palate at all.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is modest and fine.

O: A good version of a Belgian Pale Ale.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (it was brewed there after all). Poured a vibrant yellow-orange with a minimal white head that remained throughout. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, floral, spices, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, floral, spice, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The nose on this was actually not too bad. I really wish it would have brought a little complexity to the plate as it left me hanging. The flavor was a little more on the one-sided flavor side. There was mainly a big earthy tone and the spices that were advertised kind of took a back seat in this one. Not a bad brew but definitely not a top contender for the best of the style.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy light to medium golden amber with fine one finger white head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of bready malt, coriander, clove, mild saison yeast, slightly vegetal. Flavor begins with light sweet malt, light fruit, saison yeast and quickly develops more intense Belgian spicing and mild yeast funkiness, finishing with a dryer saison spiciness and bitterness. Nice light creaminess to the body, more than expected from a saison style. Interesting hybrid between saison and Belgian styles; body and initial fruit flavors lean towards a Belgian pale, but a saison yeast character develops quickly and finishes this ale. I liked both the initial lighter taste and final peppery spiciness and the flavor transition. Not easy to categorize, but refreshing and tasty. Nice mouth feel.
