Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm via Jay. Poured hazy light copper color with an average to large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate yeast and citrus hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.

750ml bottle, thanks to Jay A.! Shared with alexsdad06 and tmoney99. Hazy orange amber color. Thin bubbly off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Get that classic musty belgian malt flavor (that I’m not super crazy about). But also some good earthy citrusy and tropical hop to it, too. Pretty solid, tasty belgian pale ale overall. Good bigger hop on it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
can. dark (for a "pale" murky almost amber pour. 3 1/2 months old. Still quite bitter at first, and dry. Opens up to be quite yeasty on the nose and palate, fruit and spicy yeast playing with earthy spicy hops. I dig the balance. I think I’d like this a LOT brewery fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark bronze pour, the head a bit thin. There’s a bit of a ester-laden twitch in the aroma, but it takes some effort to discern it. This drinks with a metallic feel up front. There’s a follow-on sense of grassy herbs, a bit of floral hop, and a final swirl of mild yeast. I’d prefer a bit more heft to the beer, but this is pleasantly drinkable. (#5470, 3/19/2014)
