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…

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.

I tasted this beer while visiting the small brewery of Lupus. I think Wolf 7 has a very nice golden color. When tasting it, you can find a slightly sweet flavor and in the aftertaste you will taste a subtile tense of bitterness. I definitely enjoyed it this Wolf 7.

When I drink this, what strikes me is that this beer comes across as quite a traditional Belgian ale. All the characteristics you want to see, but don't get so often. Or so it seems. Maybe just a bit more earthy than is typical. It all works. A real nice sipper. Nothing showy, but just an overall well made ale.

Coming in a 330ml slim brown bottle, bottle-conditioned; BB 13/03/14, served chilled in a stemmed goblet.

Appearance: pours a dirty golden colour with light haze, coming with very very lively carbonation and a well-lasting thick off-white frothy head like well-aerated milk froth.
Smell: assertively fruit-estery and candy-sugary at the same time, hinting at sweet vanilla, overripe green apples, savoury-sweet prunes, Chinese mung bean paste (generally an aromatic bi-product of Belgian yeasts’ work that I would normally refer as such), lighter notes of citric hops, and a sharp but not omnipresent tinge of yeasty acidity, while malts are rather subdued. Given a good swirl, the floral+fruity perfumy esters (as in sweet, light-coloured prunes) gain even more strength. All in all I find the aroma just overwhelmingly estery and richly candy-ish, at the expense of other aroma elements.
Taste: effervescent on the entry, the overripe fruits (peaches and prunes), cotton candy, sweet citrus and light-flavoured malts in the main flavour give way to a lightly dry and very mildly peppery/spicy aftertaste, without much trace of the candy sugar that comes rather pronounced on the nose; a lightly warming alc. stays at the tail of each sip, along with a subtly perfumy touch of mung bean paste and a rather dry palate which I could associate with both hop bitterness and the effect of yeasts’ work.
Mouthfeel & Overall: refreshing on the palate, although the sugary content seems to render a slick palate; this medium-bodied Belgian pale ale comes decently flavoured and shows a better balance (or an overall structure) on the palate than on the nose. Enjoyable and even quaffable, to me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

a large format compared to the picture here, 750 ml cork and cage. deep blonde beer mostly clear with a tough to manage white foam head that rises high even on the gentlest of pours. the nose is great on this, fruity esters from the belgian yeast, soft pale malt, and a remarkable amount of banana, a la hefe yeast, which seems odd in a belgian, but works amazingly well here. in the flavor too there is plenty of the banana, especially on the finish, which relaxes an otherwise spicy yeast profile. candy sugar is subtle, but this finishes a little sweet like a tripel, although i would not qualify it as one based on flavor. the malt is really light, lets the yeast do the lifting in terms of flavor, and the feel is exceptional. delicate on the palate with a light body and a potent carbonation with just enough of a long finish of orchard fruits before drying up. expertly made belgian blonde here, drinkable as they come over 7% abv, and fairly priced at roughly 10 bucks per bottle.

On-tap 10/31/2013 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, light caramelized malts, some spice, some bananas and some hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet and spicy with flavors of bananas, citrus and spices. Then some breadiness comes in from Belgian yeast and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
