A - Pours pale gold in color and looks just a little cloudy. Pretty generous white head with good retention. Lacing was average.

S - Aroma is nice starting with banana and spices. Lighter smells include alcohol and yeast. All of these play off each other making for a good smelling brew.

T - Taste is very spicy. Reminds me of pepper. Also get banana pretty strong in the flavor too. Background flavors would be yeast and sugar. On the end there is a slight amount of hop bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with carbonation levels that are right on target for my taste. Slightly dry finish.

D - A very good brew from Unibroue. Drinkability is high. I will be having this one again in the near future.

This is the beer that lets you know that developing your palette for superior beers paid off. You moved from mediocre Buds or skunky Heiniken, to the Sam Adams variety pack, or the Belguim variety pack (Stella, Hogarden, Leffe), and now you're ready for the Big Leagues of beer. The welcoming committee comes out for this one. They say yes, you thought Sierra Nevada Pale Ale was the end-all of beer. But now you've had the best! No longer can you settle for Shock Top. No longer does it makes sense to put an orange in your Blue Moon. Welcome to a mature natured beer!!!

I've had this one around for a while now, over a year and a half. I always thought I had reviewed it but I guess I hadn't. Belgian Pales are finally starting to come around for me, typically this hasn't been my favorite style.

Appearance is a light, golden color. Almost light yellow. Poured a little too much off and resulted in plenty of yeast floaties in its clear body. Huge pure white head on the pour. Reduced quickly but left a nice half inch foam cap on the top. Left a nice coating of solid lace in my glass.

Smell is spicy and sweet. Corriander and white pepper predominate with some subtle citrus smells, a bit of orange rind and some pear. Typical for the style, but simple and clean in this example.

Solid malty body to start with, a bit earthy actually. Some citrus and light fruits come in next, pear and apple, followed with a bit of light spice. Finish is grassy with some straw. My guess is that the bit of age this has brought out the maltiness over the already light hops and spiciness. This is still a nicely balanced beer though.

Mouthfeel is thin to medium. Most likely it is heavier than it appears, there is a fair amount of carbonation which makes this crisp on the tongue, but weakens the mouthfeel.

Drinkability is okay. Like I said, I'm not a huge belgian pale fan, but this one comes across nicely balanced and well flavored. The prickly feel on the tongue and stomach warming nature hurt this a bit. I just think that a clean, light flavor natured beer with a lot of carbonation shouldn't feel heavy on the stomach.

Ah! The end of the world is coming! Yup, it's sitting in my Corsendonk tulip glass and I love it. Poured out a dark pale yellow with a huge head that settled down quickly. Smell consisted of mostly citrius notes mixed in with some malts. A whiff of alochol is there too but not that much. Taste was great. Some sweeten malts mixed in with some spiciness and exotic fruits and/or pears. Smooth and creamy going down as well. Another terrific brew from Unibroue which is gaining quite a bit of respect from me lately.
