look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: A light amber with a light haze. The persistant cream, white head leaves lacing on the glass.
S: moderate clove and pear aromas with some floral hops. There is a slight bit of malt sweetness, faint caramel and pils malt aroma. The alcohol aroma is light, soft and floral.
T: The flavors is mostly moderate pepper, clove, orange peel, spicy hops and light pear. The moderate hops bitterness brings the balance to the bitter side against a light malt sweetness. The finish is dry and the aftertaste is of a hops bitterness and orange peel.
M: Light bodied with a moderately-high carbonation and a slightly cream mouth feel. There is a slight astringency on the front of the tongue.
O: A very nice BPA with just a touch to much clove.

22 ounce bomber decanted into an oversized snifter. 6.7% ABV.
Appearance: Brilliant copper with an amazing eggshell head. I have not had a beer in this style that retains its foam cap as well as this one (5/5).
Aroma: Freshly cut apples, maple syrup, brown sugar, and a faint “soapy” character (not unpleasant or out of place). Very nicely layered (4.5/5).
Taste: Pressed apples and pears. Beautiful product of the right malt and yeast combination. No bitterness to report whatsoever (4/5).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation. Lively (4.25/5).
Overall: Of the Belgian Pale Ales I’ve enjoyed lately, most of my favorites have taken the style and spun it into something unique and personalized (unconventional hop additions, Brettanomyces, etc.) But this beer has the balls to just be traditional. Mild noble hop aroma, strong apple and pear smell and flavor, low ABV. I’m impressed (4.5/5).
