Like others of this style, this is a wonderful, easy drinking brew that is really quite grand.

It looks right for the style and has an appropriate aroma, though perhaps muted. The taste is maybe a little less understated than a Duuvel which is nice in the beginning but later tires. It has all that yeasty goodness going on with hops hidden by all that. Of course is all hides a lot of alcohol amazingly well.

This is a wonderfully decadent ale. It would be nice to do a serious session of these drinking a whole bottle of four or so varieties. Alcohol daydream. Great brew - highly recommended.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Belgian goblet.

A - 4.25 - Medium straw color. First pour is clear, later ones hazy with sediment. Head thick, fluffy and mousse-like. Very sticky lacing.

S - 4.5 - Inviting mix of sweet, simple malt and complex yeast. Notes of bubblegum and very faint musty barnyard.

T - 4.5 - Clean, bready malt. Light touch of noble hops. Strong yeast notes of bubblegum, spices and very faint horseblanket.. Fairly dry finish.

M - 4.0 - Light to medium body. Medium hops bitterness. Strong alcohol burn verging on boozy. Full, prickly carbonation.

O - 4.5 - A great example of the style. Clean and subtle, yet with strong alcohol and a bit of barnyard funk in the background. Well done!

4.25/5  rDev +3.7%

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy amber color capped by a couple of inches of foam which display real staying power and leave a fair amount of lace

Smell: Very fruity, with stone fruit, grapefruit and a hint of banana

Taste: Fruity, with with stone fruit and banana and a very floral citrus tone that builds in the middle; yeasty and spicy, after the swallow; clean finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Really like this beer; verges on Belgian IPA territory but not overly hoppy

12 oz bottle -- bottled on date 31 May 2014 -- served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours pale amber in color; cloudy with a small head that soon dies down ro a ring but leaves decent lacing. Full pour still left some sediment on the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: mainly fruity with hints of apricots and oranges. Some alcohol esters.

Flavor: Largely follows the aroma: Lightly spicy and moderately fruity, with a relatively high hop load. There's only a very mild bitterness in the aftertaste.

Feel: light-medium body and crisp, medium high carbonation. Dry finish.

O: a very good version of the style with high but very well-hidden ABV.

No label information. As Follows is brewed in the style of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Available in 12 oz. 4 packs and on limited draft.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle to a Tulip glass. Served above 59º Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a crisp foamy head of an eggshell white color over a banana yellow body with medium haze and plenty of sediment. Retention is good, lacing is light and spotty. 3.75

(Smell) Belgian cracker malt with a moderate syrupy viscosity underneath. Musty, peppery hops with an assertive bitterness. Peppery spices of coriander and clove, and bitter orange peel. Fairly effervescent. 3.75

(Taste) Cracker and syrupy malt with a moderate sweetness finishes bitter with musty orange rind and a soft arrangement of spice. Notes of lemon juice, apricot and raw pineapple round out the flavor profile. More boldly flavored over the aroma, it finishes very dry and yet is quite drinkable. 4

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, residual and lightly peppery. Carbonation generates a soft crispness for a mellow spritely mouthfeel. Body is medium for the style, medium/heavy overall. Alcohol presence is medium. 3.75

(Overall) A strongly flavored Belgian Style Strong Golden Ale with a flavorful malt base, potent phenols and a bold spiciness create one flavorful beer. 4
