3.3/5 rDev -19.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
My portion of a 12oz bottle poured into snifter; thanks to my good friend and potential future BA Albert for sharing this with me.
A: Pours a clear, very pale yellow (almost looking like the "straw" color I often here applied to darker American Adjunct Lagers), with tons of carbonation bubbles going all over the glass, and two fingers of bubbly white head.
S: Light yeast and musty smells, along with an equally light sweet fruity aroma- pear in particular, but also with strong notes of banana.
T/M: This is an extremely light, crisp, and bubbly beer; I notice the mouthfeel before I'm actually aware of what the beer tastes like. Flavor is thin and sweet, with more pear and a newly introduced white grape.
D: It's a fast drinker for the alcohol level, but I'm not sure that this beer offers enough in the flavor department, especially when considered in its style, to make me want to pick it up again.

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Light amber. Darker than Duvel and similar in colour to a Czech pils. Haziness made carbonation difficult to see
Smell is of onions, pear drops and candy. To me this, smells very similar to Duvel.
Taste is of malt, sugar, pear, apple with a touch of booze and a warm finish. It is a bit like an "imperial pilsner" beer as it has the same refreshing drinkability of a lager but with more alcohol warmth and more flavours going on. Bit of booze on the finish.
Mouthfeel is fizzy and palate cleanisng.
Overall I found this to be similar to a Duvel with perhaps a touch more caramel sweetness. A very good BSPA.
My mark out of one hundred would be 93.
