3.75/5 rDev +13%
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, "enjoy before date" December 2014.
APPEARANCE: pours a clear, dark golden color with one finger off-white head that dissipated quickly until a thin broken layer of bubbles remained, medium carbonation, there was a small amount of lacing on the glass.
SMELL: pepper, pears, caramel, funky Belgian yeast.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose, pepper, pears, sweet caramel, some nice Belgian funk, there is not much of a hop profile present, the alcohol 4.3% is imperceptible.
PALATE: this is a lighter bodied ale for the style, medium carbonation.
OVERALL: this is a good beer but nothing to write home about, it has a lower alcohol content for the style, which is appealing to me but, there are better Belgian ales so I would probably not seek this one out again.

3.26/5 rDev -1.8%
12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a snifter
A - It pours a deep golden color. It is crystal clear with two inches of off-white head. The head receded leaving no trace of its presence.
S - The aroma is light fruit and spices. Spiced pear comes to mind.
T - The taste is rather bland. The spices and fruit from the aroma are minimal.
M - Moderate to thin.
O - I am a little disappointed. The smell was good, but the taste was lacking. I expected a better interpretation from the Boston Beer Company.
