Got it as a Christmas gift; consumed on 12/28/13. First full review here on BA, so I believe this new release is quite fresh.

A: Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Body is hazy golden with a small white head.

S: Florally and spicy over bready malt. Cloves and banana are in the house.

T: First impression: it's surprisingly "clean" giving the yeasty nose. After a couple sips, however, I get more of the funkier, yeasty flavors. Foundation of bread doughy malt. Clove and generic spice follows. Finishes fairly clean with lingering spicy-ness and a touch of lemony bitterness and floral hops. Heat is felt in belly, though the 7% ABV is not noted on the palate at all.

M: Medium in heft, carbonation is modest and fine.

O: A good version of a Belgian Pale Ale.

From tasting notes. A: Hazy gold under a 1” pure white foam collar that hugs the dies of the glass marking each drink with a line of lace.
S: Orange peel, spice, light malts.
T: Light malts, citrus, spice, touch bitter on the end
F: Medium light body, above average carbonation, creamy yet crisp.
O: A Belgian blond with character and flavor.

22 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.
Clear gold body with a VERY durable white head.
This is a slightly funky, rather peppery Belgian Pale Ale.
Thankfully, mild, limited influence of Brett despite an obvious impact on the aroma.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (it was brewed there after all). Poured a vibrant yellow-orange with a minimal white head that remained throughout. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, floral, spices, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, fruit, floral, spice, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty decent brew. The nose on this was actually not too bad. I really wish it would have brought a little complexity to the plate as it left me hanging. The flavor was a little more on the one-sided flavor side. There was mainly a big earthy tone and the spices that were advertised kind of took a back seat in this one. Not a bad brew but definitely not a top contender for the best of the style.
