3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy, yellow/orange color with a HUGE white head that pours out of the bottle as soon as it’s open. Nose is grainy, with a light sour hops nose, some bready flavors, light dark fruit and some pear/apple esters. Flavor starts off with a bready character and moves into a very nice, well rounded sweetness in the middle and a slight dryness. Notes of apple, light clove spice, pear, yeasty and light raisin. Body is perfect with a very high amount of carbonation to compliment the light dryness. Overall a pretty good brew. Lots of flavor for a very low alcohol. My only knock on it is the yeast really comes through hard. Adds a light metallic, slight cardboard note to the tail end of the flavor. But still a solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 9/2016. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy bitterness/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, melon, pear, apple, pepper, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice hoppy Belgian pale ale style. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
