Enjoyed at Handlebar in a tulip.

A gorgeous beer. Perfect clarity, honey-hued, two inches of sticky white froth.

Light, sweet pear in the very spicy nose. Lots of clove, white pepper, white bread and a hint of banana.

Less flavor. A tiny bit of earthy hops, dry pears, candy sugar. Smooth and lightly sweet, with the perfect touch of bitterness.

Medium body, moderate pinching carbonation. Crisp finish.

Smooth, light, crisp. I could drink this for days.

poured from 11.2oz bottle into pint glass

A-amber colored with a 2 finger head that stays around a while and fades to a nice cap with lots of lacing

S-some spiciness maybe cloves

T-sort of a citrus/lemon at first and the cloves on the finish I don't really care for that combination

M-good carbonation but that clove finish is not great

O-not something that I particularly care for

A- Clear golden body with a white head that leaves an interesting lacing behind. Lots of carbonation.

A- Sweet malt with a spiciness to it. Slightly tart with a definite clove aroma.

T- This is not a belgian pale ale. Smooth sweet wheaty flavor, some spice and clove flavors into the aftertaste and that "dirty-dishwater" wheat flavor. Mixed with some hot salsa I got a taste of cream soda.

M- Incredibly smooth medium body with high carbonation.

D- Honestly it isn't my favorite, I'm typically into lighter Belgians. Quite drinkable though.
