minutemat (1550) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
330ml bottle @ Admiral Benbow, Shrewsbury. Pours gold, fairly thin citrus, yeast, spice, malts.. light hops.. dry bitter finish. Pretty boring blond with a mediocre character.

hohops (278) - Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
Appearance- light amber and a bit golden, quite a big white head which settles down into half a finger. Leaves a fair bit of lacing. Aroma- malts, yeast, dough, spices, a bit of zest, citrus fruits. Taste- hop bitterness hits first, a bit of corn and cereal, spices, lemons, floral hints, a creamy mouthfeel, which is pretty full. Nice ale.

superspak (2562) - Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2014
330 ml bottle into chalice, best before 9/2014. Pours moderately cloudy deep gold color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, bread, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, hops, and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of apricot, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of pale malt, hops, fruity/earthy yeast flavors; with a very nice malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian pale ale. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of pale malt, hops, and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
