330 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 6/29/2019. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy medium orange amber/light copper color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red apple, golden raisin, light pepper/clove, honey, bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malts, and light earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red apple, golden raisin, light pepper/clove, honey, bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/floral/grassy hop bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red apple, golden raisin, light pepper/clove, honey, bread dough, toasted biscuit, light caramel/nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malts, and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium-high carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.2%. Overall this is a nice Belgian pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, bready malts, and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and refreshing to drink with the mildly bitter/spicy/drying finish. Balanced yeast and nicely rich Munich malts; with solid hop bitter balance against sweetness. A nicely enjoyable offering. A bit underwhelming, but spot on style example in every way.

250ml bottle. Clear, copper colour with small, thick, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Slightly bready, malty and spicy yeasty aroma, hints of grey bread.Taste is minimally sweet malty, slightly bready, minimally fruity, dry hoppy overtones, hints of gry bread, a touch of cherry. So-so. martpez (413) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2018
Lots of yeast on the nose. Taste is of caramel malts and a slight metalic sourness. Like a Californian common. Very simple goes down smoothly but lacks complexity to retain interest. Tony_Grayne (471) - Minsk, BELARUS - MAR 10, 2018
330 ml bottle. Pours clear amber beer with a slightly yellowish head of a long duration. Some lollipop and grassy / floral aromas on nose. The taste was metallic sweetness with touch of unpleasant sourness leading to a subtle floral hop flavor. No a damn trace of that "Belgian" yeasty spiciness at all. Watery texture. It tastes like your regular amber lager. barry_batser (30) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2018
Bottle at home. Pours a nice amber colour. Very soft taste which makes it a nice beer to start your evening with. Tastes a little metallic in the back of your throat.

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2018 Can. Clear amber with a nice head and beautiful lacing. Aroma is balanced between strong malty notes and characteristic belgian yeast pepper/citrus/earthy notes. Rather sweet and fairly sticky. Quite nice, especially on a rainy day. jsporrer (1181) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2018
Pours a clear dirty brownish yellow with an off white foamy head. Aroma of light malts. Light body with some lacing. Taste is clean and smooth with a very light malty sweetness. Flavors aren't very bold. Light, refreshing and enjoyable. Pretty basic but still solid.
