Walking through Whole Foods today, some reps were giving tastings of this beer... one sip and yes... I'll take a couple.

I'm really starting to love Belgian pales.. and this is a great one.. I'll be back again and again...

drinking one right now while watching the Oscars and eating pizza.... it goes well with three meat digiorno.

This one is a semi-dark golden color, slightly hazy and is topped off with a thick white and airy head accompanied by some really awesome lacing. The aroma is light and fresh, hints of citrus fruits and hops are well represented here, and grapes, apples, mild pears and even grapefruit can be detected when stirred. The flavor is an exact replica of the aroma, mildly sweet with a bitter overall, the first things you taste is the apple followed by some pears and berries. The aftertaste is just as good, slightly dry and sweet overall and the alcohol is barely detectable. The mouth feel is medium-to-full bodied. This is a pretty good beer to relax to…

10/12/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This is as smooth as it gets. Borders on buttery. Just a hint of spices. So light they're hard to distinguish. I could drink this all day but for the 7.4 ABV. Beware the Wolf!

Wolf is a beer from the lupus brewery, who brews out of Aarschot at this moment.

A: Almost clear golden with a big, slightly rocky head. Some pieces of the head stick to the glass. The head retention is good, with a nice residual going on.

S: The smell is a major bonus point for this beer. The smell is sweet malty with large hints of vanilla.

T: The smell does not decieve, the same sweetness comes back but less pronounced. After the initial taste a hint of nectarines (or other stone fruits) is detecable. After this a mild bitter aftertaste comes into play. The taste seems to be well balanced.

M: Medium carbonation gives it a very nice mouthfeel.

D: Another big bonus for this beer. It has not too much abv and conceals it very well. I could easily drink a few of these on a good summer day.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/13/2013. Pours slight hazy deep golden color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellence Belgian pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy light golden amber with a healthy, fine white three finger head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of candi malt, Belgian yeast, light citrus and banana and a hint of light stone fruit. Flavor is classic Belgian pale ale, lightly caramel malt, mixed light stone fruit, green apple and citrus, light clove. Finishes with light clove and neutral hop bitterness with pleasant residual light caramel and fruit. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A nicely made example of this style, spot on in flavor. Nothing sets this apart from the pack, but I'll be happy to get this again when I'm in the mood for a traditional Belgain pale, which I was this evening and this hit the spot.
