LOOK: Deep gold with a white foam topping that has excellent staying power. Leaves behind a soapy sheet of lace. Poured with a good clarity.

SMELL: Juicy Belgian yeast with mild tropical and tree fruit notes. Somewhat musty and funky.

TASTE: Once again some juicy Belgian yeast fruit notes of raisin, pear and apple. Noble hops chime in with woodsy, grassy notes. Firm malt flavor, a rather bright and fresh tasting brew.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied, spritzy, drying carbonation. Drinks easily and is quite accessible. Not too strong, too full or too sweet, this has a nice crisp feel.

OVERALL: I've wanted to try this for a while now, and it was pretty good. A nice simple Belgian blonde. Paired beside a sharp white cheddar.

Bottle.

Looks the part without being especially memorable- mildly hazy golden color, fluffy white persistent head. Neither beautiful nor ugly, so who cares.

Nose shows loads of estery fruity notes, a big chunk of sweetness, and some yeasty sharpness. Again, pretty much exactly what you'd expect from the style without being especially remarkable.

Flavor has a few interesting things going on. Big yeast character, with those estery fruity bits really coming front and center. Sweetness that's always present in belgian pales is especially loud in this one. Doesn't hit the cloying mark, but also doesn't miss it by too much.

Lively on the mouthfeel, as one would expect from the style.

Interesting brew, and worth checking out... but hard to see why an $11 750 of this would be preferable over a $15 4pack of Duvel.

The beer is light golden and the pour results in a large white head. Excellent retention, good lace.

Very unusual (but nice) smell. Heavy on apple, with some bready malt and some Belgian yeast.

Taste is like the nose. Apple in a big way, bready malt, yeast, some caramel and biscuit. Some other fruit, perhaps pineapple. Slightly dry finish.

Medium bodied, highly carbonated, bready.

Overall, a pretty tasty and unusual BPA. Definitely worth a try.

Just entering the world of Belgian beers. Domestic Pale Ales are often too bitter for me. I have enjoyed the balance of sweetness to hops with the Belgian Pale Ales. This beer had beautiful deep straw color and a thick lacing head. This beer easiliy came to a head after swirling in the glass throughout the time I was drinking it. Malty sweet balanced with subtle hoppy finish...delicious!
