4.13/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

From batch 45. Just one away from 46, which is aged on oak. These must not be out yet.
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice x2.

A= Yellow-gold, effervescent, and maintained a rocky head leaving "belgian lace".

S= Spices such as cloves and pepper dominate. Some fruity-citrus notes. A lot more complex than my nose can handle in this allergy season.

T= Peppery and bitter. Dry bitter aftertaste.

M= Light and carbonated well.

D= Very drinkable if you're looking for a complex yet light beer. It is not completely in the "refreshing" category, but who needs that unless you're sitting around watching the game and munching on chips and guac.

4.35/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

a: golden hue with an ample white/slightly off-white head. Small lacing that retains fairly well.
s: On the nose I get pear, apples, and honey.
t: prickly carbonation, slightly tart with lemon, pepper, coriander coming through; finish with floral, spicy hops lingering
m: high carbonation, medium-light body
o: nice beer. I don't drink a lot in this style, but it's one of the better versions I've had in recent memory. This inexplicably sat in my cellar for a year (bottled 4/22/2013), and I am pleasantly surprised at how it has held up. Will get again next time I am within their distributors' range.
