Poured from a bottle with a best by date of 4/24/18; into a tulip.
Appearance - pours a hazy, bubbly orange with a mammoth, creamy white head. There is plenty of beautiful floating sediment! The head eventually recedes and leaves minimal lace.
Smell - dark fruit blended with citrus, pale malt, yeast and spice!
Taste - matches the nose and is so refreshing and easy to pull!
Feel - nice carbonation, a light to medium body with a flavorful spice finish!
Overall - another outstanding brew from Unibroue! Easily and happily had two with dinner!

You want to know what this tastes like, well, the brewery's notes cover it all. This beer is phenomenal. It is a bit pricey, but oh so worth it. I found it very light in mouth-feel and quite drinkable.

Poured into a tulip

A = hazy honey color with lots of effervescent bubbles racing up the side of the glass. Initial pour creates a 2 finger head that soon dissipated into a thin film. Despite vigorous carbonation, the head fades.

S = Belgian yeasts, sweet fruity esters of peaches, banana, and pear, some citrusy hop character comes to the nose as well. Bready malts and a peppery spice linger.

T = Slightly chalky Belgian yeasts at the forefront, followed by citrus and sweet esters. The beer has the flavor profile of a good belgian with some IPA characteristics. Bitterness is present, but nowhere near IPA levels. As the beer warms, the alcohol becomes quite noticeable, and is warming, fruity, and spicy.

M = Slick, with a creamy texture from the carbonation.

O = Delicious example of a Belgian Pale Ale, and another great beer from Unibroue. This will be a regular addition to my mix-sixes from now on. :)
