Poured from a bottle into a Chimay goblet. Appearance is similar to a witbier, maybe a little bit darker. 1/2" head that settles quickly, leaving some film on top of the ale and some lacing around the glass.

Smells wonderful! Apple and pear, white grapes. A bit like a cider or a white wine.

The smell sets you up for something a bit sweeter than it actually is. Although there is some fruity sweetness up front, it dries out in the middle and leaves a bit of a lingering aftertaste that isn't quite what I was expecting. I don't believe I've ever had anything in this style before, so I'm not sure what to compare it to. The flavor isn't as good as the smell. It doesn't really taste like an ale, either. More like a dry cider, or something. Different for sure.

Mouthfeel is pleasant enough, definitely a bit on the dry side. Carbonation is minimal.

I got this in a Unibroue sampler case. This is my least favorite of the 6 styles in the case, and the only one I wouldn't buy on it's own. All the other 5 styles are amazing.
