Pours an incredibly crystal clear straw color with a bubbly bright white head. Faint earthy and barnyard aromas, some grassy notes a touch of pepper and clove.
Incredibly clean and crisp, medium bodied concise and extremely well blended flavors. Phenolic balance throughout in contrast to the sweeter Apple and pear undertones. Sweet fruity yeast floral flavors and earthy hops. Incredibly clean balanced and flavorful. Drinkability is dangerously high. Simply an amazing beer. Incredible subtlety. Would get straight 5's if it was a touch less medicinal. But an extremely incredible beer. This thing needs to be available in NJ more often.
All the flavors you want from a big strong Belgian pale ale with the drinkability of a smaller Belgian pale ale. Amazing.

Picked up the Brewers' Picks mainly for this, though I like the Titan and get the Collette pretty regularly. Figure I'll just suffer through the three Denver Pale Ales in there (just kidding, actually looking forward to trying those again, as well).
Poured from a bottle into a goblet, light amber, really no head to speak of, just a thin sheen of small bubbles across the top and a modest collar. Totally clarified, light effervescence.
Smells sweet, yeasty, definitely get that Belgian yeast and some spice. Bottle says noticeable hops, but I'm not noticing it as much as they seem to think I should. A little boozy. Flavor follows suit, with more hops, biscuit and malt presence. Definitely sweet, with a nice boozy edge.
Overall, why did they take away the six packs, again? Seriously, this stuff's really good, worth getting the brewers' picks to try it if you haven't. Recommend if you like their Collette and Orabelle.
