This beer poured a standard, structured belgian but it was a much darker beer than I expected. It had a legitimate head, but nothing spectacular.

The beer's smell and taste were similar to each other, first a whiff of belgian flowers, then malt and finally a vinegar finish. It was a little more bitter at the end than I like, but not offensive.

Due to it's odd finish, I wouldn't enjoy drinking more of it. If this is a belgian "pale" ale, it's one on steroids.

Amber beer with a thin lip of foam. Looks good in its own glassware.

Musty Belgique maltiness, brown apple flesh, sprite acidity, and darker grains. Not bad.

Amber twist to a Belgian Pale. Follows the nose with apple and pear, but picks up some drier bitterness and herbaceous hops toward the finish. Tasty and simple. Mouthfeel is carb-light, but still good. Great swish. Drinkable as hell.

Served in a De Koninck chalice at Beelow's.

This tap has been here too long without me partaking of its contents. Time to rectify that. It pours a hazy rusted tawny topped by a half-finger of faded khaki foam. The nose comprises rye bread, light ruby red grapefruit zest, Belgian yeast, a hint of clove, and a few drops of maple syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some mild grass and flowers for the sake of it. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little BPA, nothing to write home about, but if you're here and need a bit of Belgian-ness, it's here for you.
