look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured from a bottle. Deep orange color with a huge head that slowly dissipates, lots of tiny bubbles. I had to pour half and let the head settle before pouring the remainder.

S - Yeasty, fruity aromas dominate -- banana, cloves. Definitely Belgian. I detect some diacetyl.

T - Fruity with some spiciness. Apple, banana The spices are hard to pinpoint but I think I pick up on some nutmeg.

M - Dry and thin. Leaves a slightly slick feeling in the back palate.

O - A nice beer, but probably not something I would buy again. When I was finished I didn't find myself wanting more.

Aroma: Spicy black pepper, dark citrus, banana and clove. Pale and crystal malt in the background. Hops are mostly floral with some pine. Big, bold aroma on this one.

Appearance: Pours a huge off-white head with orange highlights. Noisy as it dissipates slowly. Head is sticky and creamy. Great retention and lots of lacing. Orange-gold in color, with lots of small particles evenly distributed in suspension.

Taste: Some pale malt, moderate yeasty phenols, black pepper and clove. Good dose of hops, more floral than pine, just like the aroma. Some dark citrus, blood orange. Aftertaste is floral hops and banana.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body, moderate fluffy carbonation. Airy feel. Finishes dry with the bitter hops.

Overall: Good all around brew. Bold and beautiful, especially for a lighter brew like and amber ale.

Note: Drank on 4/3/2012.
