12oz bottle, from Dutch’s. Bottled 9/28/15. Up front, pretty nice banana, some peach, biscuity malt, mild spiciness. Hazy orange color, thin white head. Nice ridge of lace. Medium body, decent fullness to it. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation. Mildly dry finish. Good bit of zest, some herbal character. A lot of pear. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, lighter-plus sweet, touch of tanginess. Pretty nice belgian pale ale. Very well-done. Impressive complexity and integration.
