330ml bottle, another cog in the 1/2 Meter of Beer mixed pack from this brewery now available in Alberta.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden amber hue, with four fingers of puffy, frothy, and chunky eggshell white head, which leaves a fair bit of splotchy linked-island lace around the glass as it slowly bleeds away.

It smells of sharply toasted pale crackery malt, white and black pepper, warm apple slices, metallic yeast, and a further dry mixed berry fruitiness. The taste is baked apples and pears, bready, kind of doughy pale malt, a touch of sugary caramel pudding, edgy yeast, faded table pepper, white wine must, and earthy, floral, and faintly perfumed hops.

The bubbles are decently playful in their rounded prickliness, the body an adequate medium weight, and generally smooth, in a low-fi, slick sort of manner. It finishes off-dry, the lingering pale malt breadiness contending yet with yeast, bitter fruit, and a suggestion of warming alcohol.

A pretty well-rendered BPA, the cast of characters more or less complete. Fruity, yeasty, spicy, and a tad boozy, all in balance. Worthy of multiple rounds, if this is your sort of thing - me, I'm just happy to try a new Belgian Abbey brew, with a few more to come.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-golden amber color with a large white head and some lacing

S-grainy malt, apples, spice, slight yeasty funk

T-sour apples, biscuity malt, grapes, spices, pepper, slight bitter finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp and dry

O-OK but has slightly odd balance of flavors, not bad but not compelling
