Bottle. This version is 5.8% ABV. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit fruity. Malt and lots of hops in the flavor as well as some caramel. Slightly hoppy bitter, with some more of the bitterness towards the finish. Medium-bodied. Very enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice amber color with white head that sticks to the glass. Sweetish aroma of wet straw and grainy bread. Flavor starts with a bit of honey before the mildly bitter tang of hops kicks in, but that turns the corner into a drop of caramel-sugar on the back end. Lively mouthfeel, nice for a pale ale but typical for a Belgian. Somewhat wet. A refreshing beer thatís a step too far on the sweet side to be good for session drinking. But that nice kick of hops saves it from being boring. I deem it a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A copper coloured beer with a whitish head. and a touch of lace. The aroma is fruity and malty. The taste has sweet berry fruits but also a decent earthy hop feel. Quite suprisingly contrasted at times. Like an English Strong in many ways and certainly not typically Belgian.
