12oz bottle found in the back of my cellar dated 10/22/12
A-Poured aggressively with a 2in white head. lots of micro bubbles being released from the center of the glass. Head retention in not very good, almost completely dissipated within 1 minute. leaves a small thin lacing.
S-Malt with what appears to belgian yeast and a light citrus nose.
T- Very malty with no sign of hops and a slightly spiced body.
M- Good carbonation with a solid mouthfeel.
O- Can definately tell that this beer has degraded a lot but it’s still a solid drink

A - Golden yellow and nearly transparent. Beautiful off-white head with great retention and lacing.

S - Bready and citrus, orange and grapefruit

T - Caramel base with strong spicy pine and grapefruit hops and tons of banana. Normally I am not a fan of the banana flavor that Belgian yeast imparts, but this is the most I've ever enjoyed. The high ABV and hops balance the flavor amazingly.

M - Crisp and clean with perfect carbonation. Very drinkable!

O - This is a new favorite. I'm not normally a fan of Belgians or Belgian/IPAs because of the yeast flavor profiles but the strong hops and dry hopping counterbalance this perfectly. I will definitely be enjoying this again.
