Transfer from BA review on 9-25-12- Poured from bottle into tulip glass Appearance - Pours a hazy orange-copper color with a nice two finger white head that receded quite rapidly. Once the head has faded, a moderate level of lacing is left on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of lighter fruit aromas of pear, banana, apple and peach. Mixed with these fruit aromas are notes of a yeasty smell as well as some spice aromas of clove and nutmeg. Rounding out all these are some aromas of a bready nature, which when combined with the rest create a very nice aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with many of the fruit flavors that were also present in the nose. The apples, pear and peach which start are also accompanied initially by a biscuity flavor. Soon as the flavor advances however the yeast and spice show up bringing a yeast cake, banana, and classic yeast spice profile (clove and nutmeg) flavor to the tongue. In the end flavors of a more herbal and grapefruit citrus nature come to the tongue, leaving a sour and sweet (emphasis on the sweet) flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the slightly lighter side with the carbonation level being rather average. Both were quite fitting for the fruit flavors of the beer as well as the style. Overall – A nice fresh tasting Belgian strong pale. While not super “strong” it is smooth and flavorful. A good drinker and one to try if you get a chance.

reebtogi (4303) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
750ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some spotted lacing behind. Streams of carbonation rising to the surface. Aroma is light fruits and spice with some yeasty notes and hints of caramel. Taste is a spicy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation. A nicely done Belgian style pale ale and recommended.

Pours a dark orange/honey color small head, some lacing. Aroma is Belgian spices, clove, some banana but there’s a feeling of complexity here. Taste is yeasty with a complex spice feeling. A slight bitterness at the end which is awesome. One of my favorites, this.

foyle (245) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass. Appearance: pours a 2" frothy cream colored head which slowly falls with some mild lacing. Color is a amber-orange, cloudy with sediment in suspension. Extreme amounts of champagne-like streaming carbonation. Aroma: banana and coriander, caramel, Belgian yeast. Mouthfeel: medium bodied and slightly astringent. Finish is dry with a bit of lingering alcohol burn. Flavor: sweet caramel and spices, raisins, a hint of pineapple, yeast rolls, strong earthy hop presence. Overall: nicely done and a pleasant brew for sipping and contemplation.
