Served on-tap at New England Brewing Co in Woodbridge, Conn.
A: Hazy, golden copper-yellow with a one-finger head of creamy white foam which hung around for some, time, leaving a nice sheet of lace on the glass.
S: Loads of tropical fruits and earthy, herbal hop aromas mixed with a tinge of phenol alcohol. The scent of pears, apples, mangoes, pineapple and grapefruit are picked up along with with herbal, white pepper and musky hop aromas.
T: Semisweet, fruity, candied malt up front with a bit of chilled haze, protein and yeast to chomp through. Afterward, a complex bouquet of tropical fruits, citrus, floral bitterness, toasted grains and candied, sugary spices leap onto the palate and wash away a bitter, fruity, mineral finish.
M: Medium to full bodied American-style Belgian pale ale with plenty of full, citrus and spicy flavors up front with the right amount of demure quaffability.
D: Sort of a sipper at 9% ABV, 668 drinks light and satisfying enough where it would be a problem from the uninitiated who don't recognize ABV. A tasty, fruity, floral and complex "near-summer" beer to quench the masses.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

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.
