Poured into a large snifter.
Hazy pale golden appearance. Over three fingers thick huge fluffy head of white color that persists really well. Awesome looks. More than average number of bubbles. Excellent lacing of the receding head.
Aroma: Very sweet fruity aroma with a lot of yeast presence. Clove is substantial. Good spice presence. Faint hops. Nose is more than of a strong belgian ale.
Taste: Very mild hop presence. Spicy-sweet finish. Malt presence is good. Clove like and some spice taste that follows the nose. Lack of hops is very surprising to me.
Mouth feel: Medium bodied feel. Moderate to high carbonation that does not hurt. Easy to drink. No astringency whatsoever.
Felt all the way as if i was drinking a strong ale made Belgian style.
Note: Hops in this brew grow on you as you drink. So improves the likability.

I like it. I would have loved it if the brewers were not so stingy with the hops.

Pours a hazy pale orange with a one finger white head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma has pears, Belgian yeast, citrus, cloves, and pale malts.
The taste is more bitter than I would have expected and has citrus, citrus zest, pepper, phenols, Belgian yeast, pale malts, and cloves. The proportions of the ingredients do not seem to be ideal, and this beer kind of seems like it was just thrown together, without much thought be given as to how it would turn out. Each sip seems to start sweet, and finishes overly bitter, with a good deal of citrus zest.
Medium bodied with above average carbonation, and an overly bitter finish. A decent beer, but if falls short of the best Belgian IPAs.
