The beer comes in a copper amber color with tons of carbonation.

The aroma has banana, lots of spiciness, Belgian yeast and breadiness. A good amount of dark fruit from raisin to plum.

The flavor has a good balance between fruits. There's some citrus, lemon, and floral notes. Then there's lots of spice with pepper and clove. There's also apricot and also some very ripe banana.

The mouthfeel is quite light and makes it drinkable, but I found that there was a bit too much carbonation.

A well made brew and packs a good amount of flavor for its ABV.

Packaged in April 2013. Poured into tulip glass for review. Pours clear amber with frothy white head. Very little lacing. Smells spicy with black pepper & clove, notes of sweet citrus (orange peel), coriander. Spicy phenols persist after other aromas fade from the nose. Tastes sweet, yet finishes dry. Lemon & orange flavors with ample hop bitterness. Bitterness lingers and stings the tip of the tongue. Feels about medium full. Alcohol kept well in check. A delicious beer. Very well brewed and solid all around. Love the complexity and aptly priced for a Belgian made in America.
