4.5/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Slightly hazy straw-yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized bubbly head that the has very good retention and leaves lots of lacing on the way down.

S: Green apple, a little biscuit, dry cider, and some very mild yeasty phenols.

T: Clean and crisp. Tart green apples and some pale malt. A bit of yeastiness and some light noble hops. A sharp hit of yeasty phenols then a bit of alcohol on the finish.

M: Clean, crisp and tart. Some alcoholic heat on the finish. Mild bitterness. Aggressive carbonation.

O: I guess this is the standard bearer for the style and about as good as it gets when it comes to Belgian Pale Ales. A very fine beer indeed.
