look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

First off I love the categorization for this beer, listed as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale, I would call it a "Belgian Strong Golden Pale Ale", there's nothing quite like it. Snagged one of these in a corked 1pt 9.4oz bottle, which is usually a sign of great things to come. In this case it definitely was.

Look - Impressive bottle and artwork, not much more to say here. Pours light and slightly hazy with an aggressively bubbly head. Golden with a slight touch of amber.

Smell - Resembles a high-end pilsner here, a little bitter smelling. Made my mouth water.

Taste - Crisp, citrus (lemon? apple?) with just the right amount of hop overtones. Almost spicy and zesty, incredible!

Mouthfeel - This brew is so refreshing and thirst-quenching. It made a cold January evening feel like mid-summer. Could drink for a while but it is strong so take it easy!

Overall - This is a terrific brew, met all of my expectations and shattered them. Disclaimer, I am a huge fan of golden-style ales in general so this taste may not line up with yours, but for me this is one of the best of this style I have ever had.
