look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours a cloudy honey color with a very fluffy head that leaves plenty of lacing down the side of the tulip

Smell: Shortbread and apples, with hints of spicy yeast phenols

Taste: Shortbread malt flavors dominate the front end, with the apple and spicy yeast elements arriving in the mid-palate; nicely balanced in the finish, with the apple elements building, in particular

Mouthfeel: Medium body with high carbonation; a bit creamy

Overall: Fairly straightforward, but a really nice example of the style; the balance in this beer is quite impressive

11.2oz bottle
no bottling dates

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with just under 3 fingers width of white head. Head has very good retention and leaves lots of pretty lacing rings.

S: Citrus, belgian yeast, spice, banana esters.

T: Spicy right from the start, peppery and a hint of clove. Some sweet citrus and bitterness to go along with the spice.

M/D: Medium body, carbonation very high (too high for my liking) which detracts from the smoothness and drinkability.

O: Overall, pretty good but not great. Worth checking out if you enjoy the style.

Pours a clouded lighter brown color. Were it not for the chunky off-white head I would believe it was a glass of unfiltered apple cider. The head has good retention and leaves some decent lacing.
Smell is malty with light fruits, mainly green grapes and pears, a yeast/biscuit note and an ephemeral hop note. The alcohol is noticeable but far from strong. Good balance.
Taste is malt, the same fruits, alcohol, slight yeast and somewhat more hops presence. Balance is pretty solid.
Warming nearly from the start, slightly drying as well with an unexpectedly clean finish. Aftertaste has a slight tortilla chip aspect to it as well. Altogether, a really nice beer. Not a standout but a very solid example.

11.2 ounce bottle decanted into an oversized snifter. 6.8% ABV.
Appearance: This has got to be one of the longest lasting heads that I’ve ever seen. When I first decanted it was about a finger deep, and it never really went away. Towards the end it thinned out some, but the surface was never anything but white. Incredible lacing down the sides of the glass. The body is a rich, murky tan (4/5).
Aroma: My first impression immediately following the pour was very bready, almost like pizza dough. But that cleared out relatively quickly and was replaced by the aroma of fresh pressed cider. As the beer warmed the malt came in, and blended nicely with the apples (4.5/5).
Taste: Toffee and pressed apples. A little peppery. I catch a whisper of Saaz-like bitterness on the back end, but it’s very reserved. Slightly sweet, and finishes surprisingly clean (4.25/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. A touch of astringency that feels like it may have come from the grain husks (4.25/5).
Overall: I would highly recommend this Belgian Pale Ale. Definitely one of the best I’ve had. Between the bready malt, and the fresh cider taste, it was the perfect pint for fall (4.25/5).

Pours a golden orange copper with large long lasting off white fluffy head. Good head retention and lacing throughout. Aroma is fruity and citrusy with Belgian yeast and biscuit malt. Taste is citrus fruity flavor, Belgian yeast, biscuit malt, mild citrus hops with some mild vanilla notes. Palate is a medium body, smooth with sweet bitter notes. Finishes with sweet malt, yeast, fruity citrus notes with some mild bitterness. The ending is slightly tart oak aged lingering vanilla flavor. Overall a very good flavorful and enjoyable brew.
