look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A: Clear. Lighter shade of orangey amber in color. Forms a moderate sized white head that reduces down to a patchy surface coating. Some light lacing.

S: Not overly aromatic, but smells fairly "Belgian." Candy and clove. Mild spicy quality. Sweet, with a good dose of candied orange peel.

T: Taste is similar, though the sweetness is more restrained. Fruity with notes of orange peel, mild spice, and a slight touch of toast. Turns a hair bit earthy and moderately alcoholic on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Smooth and slick. Lower carbonation. Slightly spicy. Mild bitterness.

O: Not a bad beer at all and certainly one I wouldn't mind having again, but at $12/bottle I can think of other Belgian Pale Ales I rather buy.

Poured into a snifter.
A - Pours a clear light orange with a small white head.
S - Banana, clove and Belgian yeast, very inviting.
T - Very earthy with notes of pepper, banana and clove.
M - Dry with significant carbonation.
O - I seem to like this more than most of the reviewers. I really like the complex flavors, which I had not expected. I often avoid Pale Ale's because most aren't complex. This one is quite tasty and I look forward to the next bottle.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Small white head. Wisps and a collar.

Smell - Nice orangey aroma. Phenolic cloves and bananas. Yeasty. Booze.

Taste - Much more of the Belgian character. Citrus is there, but fainter. More of a sweet apple flavor. Harsh pale malts. Booze and some spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Harsh alcohol. Not that much alcohol, but it's got a kick. A little heavy.

Overall - Enjoyed it at first, but it gets very harsh.

Pours a light semi-hazy sun golden yellow with a fair amount of prickly foam.

Biscuit-like sweetness, clove, earthy, toast, honey, and some pepper.

Clove, citrus rinds, resin, toasted bread, and that familiar Belgian peppery-spiced characteristic.

Light-medium bodied, medium-heavy carbonation, astringent, almost grainy, spiced, lackluster.

Overall, I was pretty disappointed with this, definitely not worth the price.
