2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear brilliant golden with a thin sticky foamy white cap. Toast and cracker golden malts on the nose with just a kiss of floral noble hops. The flavor brings out a little more of that floral hop flavor but it’s on such a medium and crisp body the malt doesn’t shine too much. Kinda neutral and golden and clean. A bit too clean, if honest.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance was clear golden with creamy white lasting 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are fruity estery yeasts, cracker malts and hints of floral noble hops. Taste are pils malt sweetness upfront then gives way to soft spicy hop mid sip. The backend is all Belgium fruity yeasts. Palate is soft smooth CO2 with light body, then average length slightly drying fruity finish. Overall an easy drinker for the summertime.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into signature globe glass, best before 7/19/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of peppery yeast spiciness and earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a very good Belgian pale ale. All around good robustness and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, pale malt, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Minimal aroma but great taste for such a light beer. Malt flavors up front with some hops in the middle. Belgian yeast in the finish. Nice beer, easy drinking.

12oz bottle from Pizz5116. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. Not much to the aroma. Some light grain notes, and hints of sweet fruit, maybe some bad apples. Taste of stale grain, Belgian yeast, white grapes, and some bitter grassiness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the mix pack. Nose is very Belgiany, with a lot of those clove and banana notes coming throuh on some of some doughyness. Taste is a little sweet and fairly spicy, and isn’t a particularly fun drink. Meh.

12 FL OZ ($9.99 6 pack) a pretty good belgian ale but it has a lot to live up to. belgians simply put make the best ale and can not be beat and thus must be rated against other belgian made. this however is pretty good coming from the USA
