12 oz bottle.

A-Pours a hazy golden yellow with a massive amount of small floaties. Nice bottle-conditioned white head. Lots of carbonation coming from the bottom of the glass. The floaties detract from this beer quite a bit.

S- Light hints of banana, and a spicy yeastiness. Reminds me a lot of Weihenstephaner's offerings in the aroma, but not complex. Just yeast esters.

T- Pretty boring for me anyways. Some yeasty spiciness (pepper, coriander) with light bready malts laying the base way off in the background. Tart on the finish. Reminds me of Weihenstephaner's Hefe to some degree, but with less banana in the taste and more spiciness and tartness. This is much better on draft in my experience.

M- Medium-bodied with high carbonation. Feels sprtizy and sharp in the mouth.

O- Will not be buying from the bottle anytime soon, but will have to revisit this on draft. I remember getting a lot more apple and pear on draft, as well as enjoying it a bit more.

Poured from 11.2oz ceramic bottle into Piraat tulip. Pours a thick froathy head. Hazy straw golden color. Nice belgian yeast aromas, mixed with a bit of banana, clove, and fruit. Great taste. Very similar to aroma; belgian yeasts and malts with banana and clove notes. Very full of flavor and quite delicious. This truly is an excellent brew. I have had before but not reviewed...id like to revisit on tap!

Poured from a 750ml ceramic bottle into a Brooklyn tulip. 2011 on the cork. Opens with an audible "pop!"

A: Pours a dull gold with lots of sediment and a soft tower of fine white bubbles. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Vanilla, unripe stone fruits (hard, white-fleshed nectarine), cakey pale malt, and soapy, floral yeast.

T: Sweet pale malt, candi sugar, yeast and yeasty esters fill up the taste. Some breadiness, peach, banana, hop bitterness, and warming alcohol in the finish.

M: Very assertive carbonation attacks the tongue. Besides that, a bit watery.

O: This is definitely a good BSPA, but not the best I've had. The carbonation can get a bit annoying, and the taste is a bit watered down compared to the nose.
