Pouring at BCTC. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, light yeast. Medium bodied, spicy yeast, phenols. Grainy, malt earthy. Bitter, sweet into a musky grainy finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: The nose has some spice, Belgian yeast, fruity notes, hop notes, and a little pale malt
Appearance: It pours a golden-orange color with a fairly small head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor, as you might expect, is a mix of the Belgian flavors/spice, the fruit, and the hops
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a decent mouthfeel, and lightly dry finish
I thought this was a decent Belgian Pale. Though it doesn’t blow you out of the water, I liked it. Solid stuff.

Not very good. Kind of a smoky flavor, which I normally love, but more burning tire than smoked anything else. Also a pervasive bubblegum flavor, which doesn’t work for a beer.

On cask at the Blind Tiger with peppercorns. Arrived to the table a hazy dirty gold with no head. Pleasant aroma of fruity Belgian yeast. The flavor is a lovely combination of fruity Belgian yeast and flavorful peppercorns. I’m guessing they are green peppercorns as opposed to black since the result seems to be more flavor and less heat. Very nice.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane. Big and yeasty, peach-fruit colour. Drinkable though not complex pale it meets the style.

Draft. Cloudy orange color.. Hazy and mild head with foam that fades lacing remains on sides. Has that Belgian booze lemon taste but a little watered down. Not bad

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange yellow with a one-finger white head, good retention and very nice lace. Aromas of Belgian yeast, citrus - pineapple mostly - clove, and black pepper. Sharp citrus tartness, almost sour, with rich bread and cereal malt to give this a very nice balance. Light body, huge effervescence, soft on the palate, and a crisp clean tart finish.
