Canned: unk - earlier
Nice hazy honey colored ale with a solid sheet of fine whites atop. Smells like grain, sweet grain, pears, flowers, some grass and a little biscuit. Smells fresh, I dig that. Flavor is sweet initially with a good floral character with some juicy fruit, some grain and dough. Like the flavor too. A little fuller bodied than I’d dig, but with the softened carbonation, it has a nice feel overall and an unobtrusive finish. Nice beer, surprised and satisfied.

thought this was highly drinkable, and appropriate in every way. creamy and thick and sudsy on the tongue. Belgian Abby spice tasted and seen in brew. easy sweetness and not overpowering yet not a timid offering. good stuff. light orange look to it.

Transfer from BA review on 4-21-13-
Poured from can into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden color with a small white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is a biggest of a yeasty smell with lots of banana, coriander, clove and a little bit of lemon. Mixed with these more standard Belgian smells are some rather sweet candy and bubblegum aromas, giving it a rather sweet smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a malty and sweet taste with flavors of yeast present right from the start. The bready flavors create a base of the beer with the sweet initially being of a more sugary candy nature mixed with a decent amount of a tangerine sweetness. As the flavors advance, more yeast and flavors associated with yeast of clove, banana, and coriander come to the tongue. These flavors combined with a big sugary taste as well as a light alcohol at the end to leave a sweet and yeasty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to creamier with a carbonation level that was on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for the style and produce a nice balance between drinkability as well as allowing all the flavors of the brew to be sensed by the tongue.
Overall – A nice Belgian that has a taste profile in between that of a Belgian session and a triple. Quite tasty.

Hazy gold appearance with a small white head and light lacing. Yeasty aroma with a touch of soft fruit. Moderately hopped taste, with sweet malts up front, some breadiness, melons, and a bit of pepper in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.
