3.71/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: yellow with a hint of orange. Crystal clear. Thick, foamy head. Great lacing.

S: coriander. Banana. Hints of black pepper.

T: cloves, bananas. Malts are bread and biscuit. Slight hop bitterness. Tastes like there is a bit of Brett mixed in. Funky.

M: lightly carbonated. Medium-heavy body. Dry'ish.

O: decent. Not excellent. A bit under-carbonated for the style in my opinion. The bitterness is a bit too much for the style. I like it, don't love it.

Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle into a tulip
Bottled on: 12/13/13

A: Very hazy almost opaque with a pale straw color. Less than 1 fingers width of white head quickly dissipates down and leaves only a few small patches of lacing.

S: Lots of banana-y esters, tart citrus, floral, hay. I also get a bit of funk although I dont believe there is any wild agents in this one.

T: Interesting. Hoppier than is typical for the style, and definitely get the funky notes that I smelled in the aroma. There are some citrus notes, and subtle spice, but for the most part I would consider this one not to be to style. Its certainly more Saison-ish to me, which isnt necessary a bad thing unless you are coming in expecting a Duvel or Delirium Tremens type of beer (which I was).

M/D: Medium body, appropriate carbonation, a bit syrupy on the finish, ABV is very well masked and drinkability is average.

O: Certainly not blown away by this one. A good beer, and certainly worth a try, but lacks many (most) of the characters I look for in a Belgian Strong Pale.
