Dark golden. Mild Belgian smell. Over powering bubblegum taste

Amber color with average head. Generally the sense I got was of the aromas and flavors of belgian yeasts combined with american hops varieties. Enjoyable but lacked the complexity or distinct flavors that would make it stand out. I should caveat that I'm not too familiar with belgian styles.

22 oz. bottle purchased 3 days ago, and poured into a Belgian snifter.

Appearance: Amber-orange hue with a huge, foamy, durable off-white head. Gobs of lacing, but the bottle foamed over after opening, and again after pouring about 10 oz. of beer.

Aroma: Yeasty with suggestions of banana and bubblegum. These clash with some earthy/spicy hops.

Flavor: more sour than expected which, together with the over-flowing bottle lead me to suspect some contamination. Mildly bitter finish and aftertaste. Plenty of hop kick for style.

Mouthfeel: near medium body; high carbonation.

O: perhaps a bad bottle and worthy of a re-test, but not so bad that I can conclude this with confidence.
