3.54/5 rDev +0.6%
Surprised to find something this good in a can!
The malt sweetness and yeast hits right away. A little bit of honey and citrus aroma. Heavy but went down easily despite the 7% ABV. Mouthfeel a bit "sticky" for lack of a better word. Could have used a tiny bit more hopping for balance - I expect any Belgian-style to emphasize the malt and yeast more than the hops, but it was almost *too* sweet. I'd still buy it again, though.

Tasted On: 06-24-2014
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. can
Purchased: Received in a trade
A: Cloudy, honey colored beer, capped with a finger of offwhite head. Lacing is good and retention is fair.
S: Smells are a pleasing combination of sweet, bready malts, earthy tones, rich fruits and typical Belgian yeast aromatics.
T: The taste starts out with sweetness from the malts and fruits, and then has elements of spices from the hops and some woody qualities. Bitterness is very low.
M: Body is thick, with a finish that has sweetness of ripened fruits and malts.
O: Overall a very good Belgian pale.
Thanks go to Treyliff for this trade!
