3.46/5 rDev +1.2%
Looks pretty good, yellow-tan with a pretty good head and lace.
Aroma and taste have Belgian yeast character, a little hops, some coriander, maybe some caramel malt. There's a hint of metallic in the nose.
Body is fairly on the thick side of medium, finish is Belgian yeast.
It's tasty, not particularly on the high side for the style tho.

A-hazy dark copper color with an off white head that leaves a lace
S-caramel malt, yeasty, and some spice
T-spice, roasted malt, and a metallic taste. The metallic taste stays with you til the end. Later in the glass the hop flavor comes in.
M-light body and low carbonation
O-my last Saint Arnold's until I go back to Texas. I will pick up some more while I am there. This beer is much better as the it gets warmer, and I will note that and make sure I do that the next glass I have.

3.16/5 rDev -7.6%
12 ounce draft pour into a shaker glass. 6% ABV.
Appearance: Brilliant red mahogany. Absolutely no head (3/5).
Aroma: Very light aromas. I get a touch of brown sugar and a suggestion of cider. Almost like there’s a baked apple on the other side of the room. Very appropriate for the season (3.25/5).
Taste: It’s sweet, but doesn’t get cloying. I get notes of caramel apples and deeply roasted malt (3.25/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, light carbonation (3/5).
Overall: I don’t regret consuming this beer, but I’m not sure I would actively seek out another pint of it. It’s sweet, cidery, and roasty like a good Belgian Pale Ale should be. I would have liked to have seen a little more flavor and aroma contribution from the hops, and a little more lively carbonation, but it’s certainly not poorly made. Perfectly average, I guess (3/5).

Poured from a bottle dated 1/4/2013 into a tulip glass. One finger foamy head quickly settles down to a small ring. Color is copper with tiny streams of bubbles coming up.
Smells like a Belgian, very yeasty but not much character. Maybe a hint of metallic.
Flavor is good but not great. Again, not much character. I realize this is not a Trippel, bit it still lacks something. Little bit of funk on the finish is nice.
Mouth feel seems about right, a little thin. Still, refreshing and very drinkable.
