look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: [3.75] The bottle lists the ABV (4.0%) and there is a clear born date (10/16/2016). The beer is a transparent pale yellow/gold color. It has 1/2 a finger of creamy and clingy head.

S: [2.75] Belgian yeast in your face! Banana, clove.

T: [3.50] Different than the nose. Still Belgian yeast, but more subdued. Lemon, honey, orange zest, sweetness from the malts.

M: [3.50] On the thin side but not bad for 4.0%. The carbonation is low so overall it feels smooth.

O: [3.50] I really dislike the nose. But the flavor is different. Something in the added spice range is really pleasant. This would make a nice winter/Xmas brew.
