Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a goblet, best by date of Oct 2014. This pours a light golden color with a smaller white head. The smells are of belgian yeast esters, bananna, clove, spices, pepper and sweet malts. The feel is medium and high carbonation. The taste is pretty good, a little pepper and spices, some alcohol burn and a nice dry after flavor, not the best triple but great for the price.

12 oz bottle

A: Slightly Hazy, Not quite straw yellow, had a dec size head, dissipated pretty quickly. A bit of lacing.

S: Very sweet tartness, (like sweettarts!), distinct "belgian" smell of candy, some frutiness too, not citrus more banana/strawberry.

T: Very sweet maltiness up front, followed by a tart raspberry candy like, some rasins in flavor, little to no hop presence or bitterness. Finishes rather clean.

M: Seems pretty well carbonated, a tad more watery than I would like, ABV isnt overbearing at all so this could sneak up on you easily.

O: Not overly comples or mind blowing, but its got decent flavor. Good intro towards belgian style beers, better options though.
