3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
a sweet beer that keeps its head the entire time. Each sip is a tangy experience with the right amount of hops. Worth checking out.

Nice aroma - citrus, yeast, alcohol. A little metal/horse blanket. Cloudy golden with chunks. Nice foamy white head. Light carb, though active. Medium-thick body. Sweet, almost too sweet. Wheaty, honey, fruit, alcohol. Stays on the tongue and lips. Sweet finish and after.

Real pale, pear like color, generous foam. Aromatic medicinal aroma preceeds appley and peppery spice flavor. Lighter than other Belgian greats but still packs some complexity.

Impressive balance for a Belgian. Not too tart, but fruity, with a hefty yeast profile. Excellent bottle, crystal white head and slightly cloudy. Aroma was very smooth. Buttery, non-biting aftertaste. Good carbonation profile.

A nice fruity golden ale with a big head. Well balance malt and hops and very easy to drink

Very weak for a belgian....decent flavor up front but nbothing to back it up...run of the mill. I would expect a belgian from a brewpub to taste like this.

Weak smell, hoppy, slightly strongish taste. Didn’t like the aftertaste at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
I wasn’t really expecting to like this very much, because it’s a strongly carbonated pale ale, and I’m a dark ale fan who prefers minimal carbonation. But I like this stuff. It has a pleasantly refreshing quality, and its flavor and aroma have a balance that seems missing in most other pale Belgian ales I’ve had. It is fruity, but not too fruity. And it has the best head I’ve ever encountered on a Belgian ale; light, fluffy, and lasting, without being monstrously huge. I probably won’t drink this often, since for all its merits, it is still a pale Belgian, and I’m just not that much into pale Belgians. But it is a high-quality beer nevertheless.

Golden, little head, not bitter, somewhat tart, rather drinkable but not exciting to me. I prefer the Corsendonk Brown a tad, but this is still quality beer! To be tried!
