Bomber poured into a tulip glass

Pours a hazy golden yellow with a small amount of slightly off white head.

Smell dominated by the belgian yeast. Don't smell much else.

Taste is slightly fruity with the belgian yeast coming through on the finish.

An interesting take on the style but not something I would go out of the way to go back to.

Poured into a snifter.
A - Pours a clear light orange with a small white head.
S - Banana, clove and Belgian yeast, very inviting.
T - Very earthy with notes of pepper, banana and clove.
M - Dry with significant carbonation.
O - I seem to like this more than most of the reviewers. I really like the complex flavors, which I had not expected. I often avoid Pale Ale's because most aren't complex. This one is quite tasty and I look forward to the next bottle.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Small white head. Wisps and a collar.

Smell - Nice orangey aroma. Phenolic cloves and bananas. Yeasty. Booze.

Taste - Much more of the Belgian character. Citrus is there, but fainter. More of a sweet apple flavor. Harsh pale malts. Booze and some spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Harsh alcohol. Not that much alcohol, but it's got a kick. A little heavy.

Overall - Enjoyed it at first, but it gets very harsh.

Pours a light semi-hazy sun golden yellow with a fair amount of prickly foam.

Biscuit-like sweetness, clove, earthy, toast, honey, and some pepper.

Clove, citrus rinds, resin, toasted bread, and that familiar Belgian peppery-spiced characteristic.

Light-medium bodied, medium-heavy carbonation, astringent, almost grainy, spiced, lackluster.

Overall, I was pretty disappointed with this, definitely not worth the price.
