Slightly hazy and golden with a thick white head, good lacing. Bread and fruit aromas, pear, banana, a little bit of clove. Tastes slightly bready with some pear and grape sweetness from esters and a fruity, slightly spicy hop profile. Medium bodied with high carbonation. I’m confused by the low overal score of this beer. It’s a solid Belgian Pale with a weird label.

There are things to this beer, but not the right ones. Aroma and taste exist, but are not worth it. To be ranked as a "high" alcohol white beer.

R2k2 (373) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2015
Een lichtgeel helder bier met een enorme "schuimige" schuimkraag. Een iets zoetig aroma met een mooie hoppige tint. Een vrij bitter mooie smaak die de gehele mond vult. Deze gaat subtiel over in een dorpachtige nasmaak. A slightly yellow clear beer with a huge fluffy layer of foam. A somewhat sweet aroma with the hints of hop. A nice and bitter tastes filled the mouth, and moves on into a subtile licorice-like aftertaste.

Bière sucrée.L’alcool se fait sentir. Son goût est faible. Il n’y a pas grand chose à dire et à gouter.

Fles gedeeld met peltmeister. Troebel geel met redelijke kraag. Geur van gist en mout. Smaak is wat zoet, beetje banaan. Niet erg uitgesproken maar wel oke.

superspak (2996) - Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, 13433 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon. pear, apple, white grape, light banana, pepper, honey, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Very nice robustness, complexity, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Upon opening the bottle almost no aroma. Sweetness honey like. Besides alcohol and perfume.

MADpalace (218) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2014
Somewhat cloudy pilsener yellow with according pilsener head. Doesn’t look that special in the glas, nut the bottle shows some fermentation at the bottom. Smell of Lemon and malts but not strong. Taste is strong andere bitter. Not bad but not very special either. Pretty flat taste, no different flavours andere no different after taste. Does give some special sparkling in the mouth for a while however.
