4.47/5 rDev +4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Cloudy straw yellow with lots of carbonation, almost too much
Smell: Belgian yeast and fruits. There are hints of banana and apple.
Taste: A fruit explosion! The beer cycles between favors of banana and apple skins. The beer ends with a crisp hop taste found in many pale ales. It may sound strange, but I also noticed a minute bubble gum taste as the beer warms. The 8.5% ABV is very well hidden.
Mouth feel: The dryness followed by a high amount of carbonation is refreshing while the beer is both slightly chilled and warm. It feels fully bodied and heavy throughout the entire experience.
Overall: This is one of the most well balanced beers I've ever had. I almost never fail to have at least one bottle in stock and feel proud to have finally reviewed it. This is the standard to which all other Belgian Ales should be compared.
Serving type: bottle
