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.

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.
