330ml bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours a deep caramel-red colour with about a finger of creamy head that disappears to a thin, wet lace very quickly. Carbonation is minimal. Aroma is of damp leaves and heavy with sweet candi sugar and malt. There's a light backbone of spice as well.
Taste is musty off the bat with with herbal notes and a fairly pronounced fruity sweetness. Ripe apples and bready yeast with a hint of buttery mellowness. Not particularly complex, and maybe leaning on the side of sweet, yet not cloying. Mouthfeel is zippy but not overly carbonated, as I find some Belgians to be. Soft and smooth, slides down easily. This is a decent Belgian pale, but far from the best.
