12oz bottle into a goblet
not sure on the date of this one, its at least a couple months old, maybe more. only distinguishing numbers are : 061A13

A: Pours a hazy, apricot orange with less than 1/2 a fingers width of sea foam white colored head. Leaves subtle hints of patchy lacing.

S: Fruity, malty, spicy. Lots of belgian yeast banana, sweet fruits like apricot and mango. Candied sugar, hints of vanilla. Not many hop characters noted, but again I think this one may be a bit old. I like the sweetness though.

T: Duller flavors than the somewhat vibrant nose would suggest. Hops make themselves known as well, with a bitterness on the backend. Some of the sweetness from the nose is present in the taste (apricot, candied sugar), but again its dulled, and somewhat masked by hop bitterness. A touch of alcohol as it warms.

M/D: Medium body, moderately heavy carbonation, decent drinkability, well masked ABV.

O: Real nice aroma, otherwise a relatively average Belgium IPA. Not something Id probably purchase again, but worth a try.
