Server on tap in a straight pint glass.

A- Light amber, good clarity, white head.

S- Spice, cloves, a little fruitiness including some light banana.

T- Bitter, lots of spice character of cloves and maybe even a touch of caraway?

M- Medium nice and creamy

O- I didn't really care for this one, I'm not really a fan of the style in general, I don't find Belgian yeasts really complement higher hopping that well. One note of caution for me though is that I had this at a place where the beer sometimes has a funny taste to it, so I might have to grab a bottle of this sometime to compare.
