4.2/5  rDev +10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a hazy golden color. Nice mix of yellow and orange, and I can't tell if it's chill haze, or just haze, but I think it's a bit of yeast haze, because it didn't really clear up throughout the drink, but I can still see through the beer. The head is thin and white, not very dense, but it actually stays around a bit and leaves a little lacing. Kind of normal for the belgian pale style. The smell has a few dominant characteristics, all of which are interesting. First, there's a kind of fruity, sugary, bubble gum flavor, partially from nice fruity esters, and partially from the candy sugar (I assume) that gets used in this one, but it's really powerful in the nose at first. That subsides to a deep spiciness, I mean really spicy, earthy and pungent, herbal, kind of leafy, almost like burning leaves, with a hint of grass clippings. You can really smell a bit of malty sweetness, not quite bready, but sweet, mixed in with a bit of yeasty tartness. The taste starts out like chewing on fruity gum, thanks to some esters and a bit of sweetness, but that falls back quickly into this sticky, earthy taste. The malt comes in, a bit toasty and crackery, but there's this uncontrollable earthy spiciness in there. It's just herbal, leafy, and almost burnt with the hops and the spicy yeast combining - the yeast is actully a bit tart as well as spicy, somewhere between Saison yeast and Belgian Pale yeast. The malt presence comes in at different intervals, like cookies, and also a bit like powdery, starchy grains in different places. There's also a bit of a burnt sugar type taste to it. Overall, it's really a great Belgian Pale, perhaps leaning the furthest towards that earthy spiciness of any I've ever had. The body is actually very sticky and full from the malt and hops combining. The carbonation is nice and lively, crisp, and accented by the moderate dryness of the beer. The only thing is that the earthiness can wear on you thanks to that dryness, but I really find myself enjoying it. Not the easiest to drink, it's actually a bit challenging, though thoroughly enjoyable. I would definitely buy it again, but could not make it a beer I drink often, despite how much I enjoy it. I would recommend to anyone.
