The concept is interesting, and the beer is decent, but not particularly special. Mildly sweet, has a musky quality to it and a tinge of funk rounds out the caramel and fruit sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured this into a snifter as it seemed to be the most correct piece of glassware I could find.
The appearance was a decent hazy orange to amber color with a one and a half finger white foamy head that lasts for about a minute before it gently died. There was some light lacing trying to grace the sides of the glass.
The smell, actually kinda reminded me of a tripel as there was a decent amount of spicy to sweet Belgian spices to malts. I like it.
The taste took those Belgian spices and gently allowed a nice sweet apple-flavoring take over. The aftertaste was slightly spicy and sweet and so was the finish.
On the palate, it sat right at a medium on the body and showed a decent sessionability running about it. The carbonation seemed good for a Belgian Pale ale and was fairly decent to me.
Overall, I say this was a decent Belgian Pale ale to me. It did everything it was supposed to, though there were some tripel-like qualities in this beer. I actually liked this one for the most part.

Earthy aroma of sweet grains, ripe fruits, manly yeast, hops, some spicy notes. Just a little bit of funk in there too. Flavour is sweet malts and sweet fruits, with a dry finish. Actually nice, a bit Saison-like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden under a thin white head. The nose is earthy and funky with a dusty melon and apricot and loads of hay on the funky aroma. The flavor is semi-sweet and lightly funky/sour, but that sourness is only at the start. Then it blends into a mellow and balanced Belgian blonde cereal malt tone. Overall a bit average but with an interesting earthy funk at the start.
