Bottle from Rodman’s. Pours a light to medium brown with a thin white head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Malty aroma with some dried fruit and faint grapefruit hoppiness. Very thin mouthfeel, watery up front and a malty finish. Average. My drinking buddy said, "I’m surprised a Belgian brewery gets away with putting this out there." Not enough hops to be really called a pale ale, and not enough flavor to be really called good.

Aspecto: Bonito tono ámbar con brillos cobrizos, con buena transparencia y espuma de color entre blanquecino y beige, y aspecto compacto, de mediana amplitud y notable retención, que deja algunos restos de encaje adheridos a la copa. Aroma: Aromas de perfil maltoso y componente afrutado con notas a suave caramelo, galleta, almendras, ciruelas, naranja amarga y también especias (un sutil toque de canela), hierbas, que aportan recuerdos medicinales y lúpulos nobles. Apenas existe rastro del alcohol. Sabor y textura: Cuerpo medio en boca, muy bien ajustado a la graduación alcohólica de la cerveza y muy bien balanceada. El gusto viaja desde una base firme de malta levemente tostada y con notas caramelizadas, y afrutadas con reminiscencias de frutos secos, como almendras, a otra serie de matices especiados (canela), medicinales (regaliz, hierbas balsámicas,...) y florales procedentes de los lúpulos nobles, que terminan por aportar un cierto grado de amargor complementario al final de perfil seco. Cierta mineralidad salina en boca que se percibe al final del trago. Una cerveza que sorprende al mismo tiempo por su equilibrio y complejidad, que se bebe con una gran facilidad. Imprescindible probarla como referencia del estilo Spéciale Belge.
