Served from the 750ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours an autumn orange color with a short off white head that lasts for a few minutes before evaporating. Smells of wheat, yeast, barley, sandalwood, citrus peels. Has a very mild, dry, woody taste, very mellow with a hint on the sweet side. It's medium bodied with ample amounts of carbonation. Overall, this is an excellent belgian pale ale, probably one of the best I've ever had. Better still, I got this for peanuts at Costco, further raising my adoration of this beer.
