From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 07-03-12. Sampled more than a year later on August 13, 2013.

The pour is pale yellow to golden with a tremendous white and light puffy head. Some haze and busy carbonation.

The aroma is quite nice with an inviting Belgian pale malts, yeast, and Belgian sugar ester with a little clove and nutmeg out back.

The body is in the medium range with a bit of acidity. That could be due to the age of the bottle.

The taste has an upfront toasted biscuit malt character at first which is superseded by a powerful peppery and mildly dry finish.

poured fairly slowly from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Apparently bottled on July 2012. Yes, a little over a year ago. Oh well, here goes.

Big frothy white head which crowned over the pint glass. Body was pale orange, somewhat cloudy, but with plenty of carbonation bubbles. Overall, looking very nice indeed. The lacing, well, clumps really, hung all over the glasss. Head, though eventually less than 1/2 inch, retained throughout

Most of what I got from the nose was spices, nutmeg I think. Also a fairly strong bready yeast smell.

Taste was just a bit jarring. The spices hung stongly on the back of the mouth, which was a little over medium. Eventually, the palate got used to it, and the second half went down quite smoothly.

Overall, an interesting beer, which I would likely have again. Certainly not a "slamming" beer, but one to take time and muse over. I have another in the fridge, and will likely try to pour it as slowly as possible, in order to try and avoid any cloudiness at all, just to see if it makes a difference.

Very foamy head with an aroma of bananas and other fruit. Slightly hoppy with lots of fruit flavor. slightly bitter after taste. There's some complexity in this brew that I have a hard time pinpointing but thats what makes it interesting Overall an interesting beer that I would have again. New to this review thing, doing my best.

This pours a semi-cloudy amber, orange color with a giant foamy head. The aroma is filled with yeast, citrus, banana, and other floral scents. The taste is quite citrusy with lots of sweet fruits with a yeasty finish. I will agree with a lot of people and say this is way too carbonated. Still quite smooth but there is room for improvement.
