Near clear, greenish hued straw color. Good bar pour head that leaves a cross between blanket and web lace.

Mild aroma of a lightly hopped pale ale. Attractive but unremarkable.

This a subtle beer. It starts with a traditional pale taste, like the aroma. Then there's some light cream, Belgian yeast, and a floral hop that lasts long into the aftertaste. Thin bodied and adequately carbonated. There's also a bit of sourness in the aftertaste.

I had this one at the Orland Park RB on 1/10/2009.

A= This ale poured a fairly clear pale golden color with a 1" white head. A Fair amount of carbonation release present. Some decent lacing down the glass.

S= Malty sweetness combined with a pinch of yeasty Belgian funk. A slight note of citrus and phenolic-medicinal as well. Definite alcohol aromas present too.

T= Lots of pale malt/bakery sweetness and adjunct sugar up front with a nice spicy alcohol and yeast funk pop to level that sweetness off a bit. Nice dry finish.

MF= Lighter side of medium body. Carbonation provides crisp clean feel.

D= This is one of the best Belgian ales to come out of brewer Iain Wilson's brewhouse to date! Very enjoyable and dangerously drinkable.
