poured from 11.2oz bottle into pint glass

A-amber colored with a 2 finger head that stays around a while and fades to a nice cap with lots of lacing

S-some spiciness maybe cloves

T-sort of a citrus/lemon at first and the cloves on the finish I don't really care for that combination

M-good carbonation but that clove finish is not great

O-not something that I particularly care for

A- Clear golden body with a white head that leaves an interesting lacing behind. Lots of carbonation.

A- Sweet malt with a spiciness to it. Slightly tart with a definite clove aroma.

T- This is not a belgian pale ale. Smooth sweet wheaty flavor, some spice and clove flavors into the aftertaste and that "dirty-dishwater" wheat flavor. Mixed with some hot salsa I got a taste of cream soda.

M- Incredibly smooth medium body with high carbonation.

D- Honestly it isn't my favorite, I'm typically into lighter Belgians. Quite drinkable though.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass:

A: Pours with an aggressive white head which tops a clear, golden-blonde body. Leaves good rings of the remnant head around the edges of the emptying glass

S: Bananas, phenolic notes, a touch spicy with a bit of black pepper. Pretty standard belgian ale fare.

T: Assertively clean with a spicy sweetness touched by notes of lemon and sweet malts. Bananas, clove, what you would expect from a blonde ale. There is a rather peppery finish. Overall balanced but leaves a bit to be desired.

M: Clean and smooth in the body with tickling amounts of carbonation. Finishes slightly dry.

O: I rather enjoyed this beer as an easy-drinking belgian blonde. The spicy/phenolic character of similar beers of the style is present but not overpowering. The beer lets loose a bit more flavor as it warms to near room-temp.
