look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from one of the new Lucifer cans! Hopefully more Belgian breweries will take up canning.

A: Pours a hazy yellow with three fingers of frothy white head that fades into a dense cap with good lacing.

S: Belgian spices and candy sugar here with light fruit aromas reminiscent of white grapes and pears. There are some slight bready aromas toward the finish.

T: Belgian spices and yeast are a bit more present here with the candy sugar and sweet fruits in the background. The finish tastes of hearty breads.

M: Medium-light body with medium carbonation, this beer isn't quite watery but could definitely use a bit more bite from the carbonation to make it crisp and drinkable.

O: A good BSPA overall. It's nice to see this beer in cans now as well. It doesn't have the depth or drinkability of its fellow demon-themed BSPA Duvel, but is still enjoyable.

750mL bottle (no dates or codes) into a tulip. Pours a pale yellow w/ an enormous creamy bright head. Sticky chunks of lacing cling to the glass. Light carbonation.

Aroma is floral, spicy w/ a mild lemony zing. Just a subtle hint of musty yeast.

Taste is clean pale malt, yeast, and hops. A delicate balance of basic flavors. Water is a key ingredient too. Very slight candi sugar sweetness, increasing as it warms.

Mouthfeel is smooth, semi-dry.

Overall a light, clean, drinkable Belgian pale.
