Appearance: It has a beautiful hazy pale golden/yellow color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of belgian yeast, coriander, lemon, bananas, some pepper and faint cloves.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some belgian yeast, coriander, some lemon, cloves, bananas and peppery spices.

Mouthfeel: It has a med-high carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by great flavors and aromas. Great example of the style. I would buy this regularly if I had access to it.

Serving type: bottle

This was deceptively strong.

It pours a clear golden color. There’s a light aroma with a bit of an estery aroma to it. I found it sweetly flavored with an orange blossom characteristic shining through. I had enjoyed it thoroughly, felt it afterwards!
