4.24/5 rDev +9.8%
From the bottle poured into a tulip. A hazy amber color with a very large white head. The head dissipated rather quickly.
The aroma was boozy, vanilla. There was a lot of sweet malt.
The taste was very malt-forward. Lots of toffee and caramel. Vanilla still there, with a hint of whiskey.
Nicely carbonated, very pleasant. I had become bored with Unibroue, but this renewed my faith in them.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 3/6/2016. Pours lightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big peach, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of apricot, peach, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, bread, light pepper, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of peach, apricot, pear, apple, light banana, clove, caramel, toast, bread, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 5.5%. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.45/5 rDev -10.6%
Bottle best by 3/16/16 at 45 degrees into snifter
Aroma of yeast and over-ripe fruit
Head average (2.5 cm), off white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm ring and partial layer
Body medium yellow, hazy
Flavor is subtle, with yeast and a hint of smoke, and a slight spiciness. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate is light to medium, watery, lively carbonation
A complex, light-bodied and low alcohol offering from, IMHO, one of the best breweries in Canada. I can see drinking several of these in a bar or restaurant, without getting drunk.
