3.13/5 rDev -18.9%
330 ml bottle, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7,4%
Opens with a gush, thankfully I was able to pour it straight away. Huge white head, four fingers tall, soapy, with excellent retention, leaving quite a lace around the glass. Beer itself is deep golden yellow in colour, without any activity in it.
Fruity smell with lots of citrus aromas and hops. More light and subtle aromas include yeast, alcohol and banana bread.
Faint fruit flavours on the taste, followed by a very slight metallic aftertaste, before all those taste elements convert to a pleasant hoppy bitterness, along with earth notes. Not bad.
Medium thin on the body, average carbonation. Very faint dryness on the palate.
Overall, a good beer, but also a bit boring, nothing extraordinary in any case.

Beer from a relatively new brewery, Lupus... Wolf.
They have 3 wolves. I tried the lightest one, and it was very decent. It's a blonde ale with a decent head. reasonable carbonation.
The smell was very nice. Malts, fresh yeast. It promises some sweetness and spicyness.
Taste has trouble following up on the smell. It's a bit common. Mainly malty, with a bit of fruit, but not much.
Aftertaste is bittersweet, the alcohol is ok.
All in all it's an ok brew.

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.

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.

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.

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.
