Courtesy of douglas88. A Belgian Pale Ale, eh? Lets see. It pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma emits cloves, grains, banana, yeast, spice, a touch of grapefruit and coriander. The taste is an even balanced mix of cloves, yeasty spice, banana, sweet tangelo, faint grapefruit, ripe green apples and a light coriander note. Into the finish it dries up a bit while grainy malt notes come to the surface. Well executed and refreshing brew.

Easy to drink though not super complex by any means. Close to what you could call a Belgian session ale. Pours hazy blonde with OK head and lacing. Light crisp straw finish and lightest hint of florals in aroma. Tap at Barcelona.

laiti (8232) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2012
35,5 cl bottle (5,8%) @ Ferry Plaza Wine Bar, San Francisco. Bottled on 21.03.2012 Rated on 20.07.2012
Aroma is light with some citrus, fruits and floral notes. Flavour is somewhat spicy with some orange and hints of citrus. Grassy Belgian hops in the finish. Quite straightforward, your typical Belgian blonde.

Live rate. Bottle from Margaritaville, The Strip, NV, drank at The New Penguin, LE10. Warm orange gold with a fine slim cap. Nose of peppery Belgian esters and parsley hop. Decent enough MOR Belgian flavour with wine gum, white pepper, banana and tomato juice hits. Authentic and pretty tasty.

Bottle split with Tony. Pours a light yellow color with slight haze, slight sediment, and no head. The aroma is sweet Belgian malt and banana. Taste is smooth, malty, with strong notes of spicy banana, clove, and malts.

PorterPounder (7730) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Augusta, Ga - Toast Wine & Beverage - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, tight snow white head that sticks around a while. Pleasant, sweet aroma with some light bubble gum, a hint of yeast, some cotton candy. Flavor has some honey sweetness, some Belgian Candi sugar notes, some yeasty notes, a touch of bubble gum. Mouthfeel has just the right amount of spritz.. Pretty solid.

Ernest (7558) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 11, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (basement, cobwebs), with light notes of lemon zest, pepper, and soap. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Pretty ho-hum...kind of dirty and metallic in the aftertaste, with a not-very-interesting aroma.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7450) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2007
This beer came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a cloudy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was sweet, sugary a bit yeasty and had a ripe fruit element. The flavor was sweet, tangy, yeasty and moderately fruity. Fairly full bodied. Nice.
