2/4 of a sampler at Tyler's.

Light body with a small head. But the smell has a dull peppery spice with a good bit of an odd smell that took my until I finished it to figure it out. its beef jerky. Odd I know, but Im sure.

The taste has banana with a strong malt backbone. I like how theres an amazing balance between fruity yeast and sweet malt. It goes down so smooth and way too easy for a Belgian Pale.

Poured from 750 ml bottle into Delirium Tremens snifter glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a thick white head. The head was so big upon pouring that only about 1/3 the bottle fit in the + 330 ml glass. The head had decent retention but as time carried on it eventually fades (to allow for more of a pour and) to give wonderful lacing.

Smell – The aroma is largely of bread, banana, and spice. The bready and banana aroma was complemented well with aromas of coriander and clove with smells of yeast and orange as well.

Taste – The taste is of candied sweet citrus and a good breadiness with some notes of biscuit. These strong flavors are soon met with a yeast flavors and some of the spice that was in the nose. Soon at the end there is a lighter alcohol flavor that comes to the tongue. This mingles with the sweet and spicy malt base nicely to leave a rather pleasant warming flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body is on the thicker and creamier side with the carbonation level being quite average. Both the carbonation and the body are quite appropriate for the beer. The thicker body coats the tongue with all the sweet citrus and bready flavors with the medium carbonation level complementing well the spice flavors that mingle on the tongue.

Overall – A wonderful tasting, very drinkable Belgian Strong pale. It has great flavors, transitions, as well as a wonderful smell and feel.
