look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Can marked 3 09 12B38R purchased at Meijer at 50 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of yeast and spices
Head average (3 cm), off white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to an uneven layer with some trailing up the side of the glass
Lacing spotty with irregular clumps at various places
Body light amber, clear
Flavor is lightly bitter with no discernable phenolics or yeast; no alcohol, no malt, no hops, no diacetyl. The drink ends very slightly sweet. There is a slight aftertaste of spice.
Palate is light to medium, watery, brief lively carbonation.

Overall, a very unremarkable beer. It has a decent appearance although the rapidly disappearing head and the poor lacing detract from it. The flavor does not support the aroma which, at least, supports the claim to be something of a Belgium nature. Perhaps it is significantly better on tap. Worth trying once to tick.

Fusion beer-hoppy pale ale. Light brown and cloudy looking beer. Aroma of citrus and pine along with sweet smell from yeast. Can definitely taste the hops in this beer. Leaves a bitter taste in your mouth after the initial sweet taste. Overall delicious beer!

A- Clear and amber. An off white soapy one finger head caps this brew. Minimal active carbonation and mild lacing.

S- Sugary sweet malts, bready yeast. Dank grassy hops as well. A little dirty sweat sock aroma.

T- The sweet malt in the nose is slightly subdued here by an assertive hop presence that has a balancing effect on the flavor. Bitter with a sweet fruit juice blend. Definite notes from the Belgian yeast strain used in this beer come to the forefront in the middle. This one ends sweet n spicy with a modest peppery aftertaste.

M- Medium to medium -heavy. Wet and sticky.

O- Pretty decent Belgian style IPA. For me it's a little sweet. But being a hop head and trying to rate fairly per style I think this brewski is a better than average representation. Not a favorite of mine but will do in a pinch.
