Adoration by Ommegang Brewery is a good beer, and a great beer if you like coriander. Personally I do not like that taste. This Belgian style of beer would be a good choice for those of you that like Blue Moon, one Shock Top.

Looks great when poured small amber head
Smells rather potent with malts and heavy alcohol slightly caramel note
Taste is almost identical to the smell very noticeable alcohol after taste
Feel is smooth at the front but has a bit of a bite on the finish

Appearance- Pours a glistening amber, burnt orange w/ golden hues. Three finger thick slight off-white fizzy, bubbly head, dissipates to half finger. Very transparent, clear, lots of visible carbonation.
Aroma- Deep rich malts, some caramel and sweet molasses notes. Dark fruits poke through, balanced by citrus notes, mainly orange zest. Spice notes of cinnamon, and some peppery aromas as well.
Taste- Spice and citrus notes come forward more in taste, orange zest, and beautiful holiday spice notes, also peppery notes. Malt backbone pulls it all together, nice rich malts add sweetness.
Feel- Medium mouthfeel, higher amount of carbonation, but does not mask or take away any flavoring.
Overall- Enjoyable sipping beer, very warming from holiday spices, also slightly from lingering alcohol. Citrus notes balance wonderfully off of spices, spicing is not just your typical holiday spices, but also beautiful peppery notes. Great holiday offering.

My favorite domestic Belgian-style ale, from my favorite domestic brewery. I want to buy a case or two while they are around.

This is characterized as a BSDA, but it's like none I've ever tried, from the dark amber color to the mildly bitter bite offsetting the decidedly non-Belgian yeast and caramel, dark fruits, and all of the usual suspects.
