Pours a hazed and bubbly golden yellow, big, yet controlled cap of fizzy white froth, settles into nice cap, good rings towards the top of glass. Scent is pale straw, light watery fruits such as apple and pear, moderate spice from the yeasts, bready. Taste a tad bolder than scent dictates, spicier too... solid watery fruit notes and fresh bready yeasts. Medium bodied, bubbly and briskly at first, as carbonation escapes becomes smooth, dry finish. Overall, great representation of the style and easy drinking.

Pours a very nice looking Belgian. A clear golden color with a ton of carbonation that creates a huge, fluffy white head that retains throughout the whole beer.
Smell is very nice. Really clean Belgian smell. A good amount of sugary sweetness, but dominated by a ton of banana-like fruit scents.
Taste is fantastic. This beer tastes the way a Belgian pale should. Solid all the way through with tastes of darker fruits, like raisin and banana. Then those tastes are taken over by really nice Belgian sugar taste.
Mouthfeel is nice. Good thickness and smoothness all the way down.
Drinkability is great. There is not much more I can say about this beer. It is very well known and I haven't met a person that doesn't like it. If you see this, drink it.
