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.

picked this one up at the brew pub a few weeks ago when i visited. enjoyed from my FFF teku.

a - brew poured a semi-transparent orange with a thin bubbly head that was gone fairly quickly leaving a ring on the surface of the glass and some streaky lacing.

s - cloves, banana, belgian candy. some citricness in the background.

t - nice boozy fruitiness. not classic by any means for the style, but not bad. sweetness is tamed back with fruitiness. the fruitiness is pleasant and enjoyable.

m - a bit hot and fizzy. medium to light bodied.

o - overall, nice fuitiness. not classic for the style, but good none-the-less.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip/snifter hybrid glass. The nose was pleasant, with a hint of the spicy Belgian yeast and a ton of banana. Surprisingly this one had a rather light-ish mouthfeel. It had some Brett-like almost sour qualities, moderate sweetness, with noticeable lemon/orange peel in the background. Some alcohol hung around in the after taste, but only a bit. I expected more hop character from a FFF'S brew, but this one lacked any noticeable hop presence, that could be due to the style though. I've had this on tap at the brew pub and I feel that's where it's best enjoyed. From the bottle this was very "meh" for me.
