Pours a dull colored apple cider- not clear. Lots of green apple/pear in the aroma. Belgium spice there too. Soft mouthfeel, very light prickly on the finish. Taste like it smells. Very enjoyable and easy drinking.

750 ml. bb 03-06-16. Lightly hazy, burnt orange body has nice legs sustaining a quarter inch of beady bubbles. Nose is toffee, spicy yeast, earthy white grape and toast. Flavor is toffee, dry spices (clove, nutmeg, ginger), a touch of earthy dark toast and some white grape raisins. Medium body has medium-high carbonation and a nice balance. This is a good Belgian Ale with only a hint of smoke; not sure if I would’ve even detected it if they hadn’t pointed it out.

Had a glass on tap at Alexandrias as part of a flight, so I didn’t take formal notes.

750ml fresh from Save On. Amber orange with flat white head and chill haze and minimal lace. Sweet caramel toasted malts mild whiskey smoked malts some banana and bubblegum esters. Sweet toasted peaty brown sugar caramel toffee candy fruitiness with fairly light lingering yeasty banana and mild peaty smoke finish. Pretty good. Not as good as I remembered. A little too sweet.
