4.2/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Golden/Orange in color and hazy, 1 inch head with nice retention and lacing
S: slightly smells of banana and clove
T: getting the clove and banana. Nice malt character and a touch of hops. Very nicely balanced, even a little sweet (but not in a bad way)
M: I am loving the mouthfeel here, creamy and moderate carbonation
O: Definitely enjoyed this. Hard to believe that is 9% (seems more like a 6% as you drink it). Also, it is local for me which is a plus, and I love the name!

3.38/5  rDev -15.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Poured from can into my Unibroue tulip.cloudy straw color with requisite thick airy head. Not much on the nose. Some light stone fruit, a bit of funk, but nothing sharp.
Taste is slow to develop. Seems bland at first, but that sharp hit comes later.

This is a good beer, but I'll take a Duvel or Matilda anyway.

Massachusetts

3.99/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 12 oz. can into a tulip glass

A - A hazy yellow body with a foamy white head.

S - Yeasty odors dominate the nose - I pick up coriander, clove, and lemongrass.

T - Fruity and spicy esters are the first things to hit the tastebuds. Pear, banana, allspice, and even a bit of bubblegum are in the mix. Then comes a Belgian sugar cookie sweetness. The finish is fairly dry with a touch of acrid lemongrass and clove.

M - A fairly glutinous mouthfeel accompanied by a foamy carbonation.

O - Worth picking up if you visit the Constitution State. Humerous artwork on the cans will entertain party guests, too.
