3.7/5 rDev -2.4%
A: The beer is very hazy dark yellow in color. Lots of yeast particles are visible floating near the bottom, even on the first glass poured from the bottle. It poured with a finger high white head that gradually died down and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of yeast in the nose along with flavors of lemon, spices and yeast.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of lemons, spices and yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a high amount of carbonation.
O: This a very solid Belgian Pale Ale and the lemony flavors add some interesting qualities.

750 ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with an inch and a half white head that stays around for a while. There's a good amount of lacing left on the glass. The brew smells like bready malt, bananas, some tropical fruit and a bit of clove. It tastes like lemon and orange peel, bready malt, pears, and a bit of banana, spice and a floral hop flavor. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it has high but soft carbonation and it's easy enough to drink. I think it's a decent brew, it's worth trying but at $11.99 a bottle it's not something I'd buy very often.

Bottle poured into a snifter.
A: Pours hazy yellow with a slight orange tint. White fizzy head; leaves a little lacing.
S: Yeast and grains. Hint of spices and some banana?
T: Grainy, malty, banana in the finish . Surprised the spices didn't come through as much as in the smell.
M: First thing I noticed was the high carbonation; lighter, dry.
O: Overall an refreshing, enjoyable beer. I would've liked a little more full flavor and less carbonation, but this is my first experience with this category of beer. I tried to keep this in mind in my review. This was a fun beer to try, especially because the cork pops off like a champagne bottle; makes it feel like a special occasion no matter what. Definitely worth a try if you can find it.

This one pours a bright gold in color with mild turbidity and a light and fizzy white head that quickly dissipated. After the pour it appears a little watery. It smells sweet and yeasty and features a lot of clove and some banana with spices. It tastes of sweet and spicy yeasts and again features banana and cloves. It doesn't deliver much complexity but hits on what it should for the style. It drinks a little thin for my liking but isn't too thin by any means. Overall it is a solid Belgian.

A: Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow color with a big, fluffy white head. The head settles nicely and sticks around leaving great lacing.
S: Toasted grains, biscuity and cracker like aroma to the malt with some touches of spices. Hops add some citrus character and pleasant bitterness to refresh and balance. Yeast is adds spicy character typical of a belgian ale with some light tropical fruity esters.
T: Crisp light roasted malt character with a dry cracker aftertaste. Spice is delicate but welcoming and hops even out the taste with some pineapple and citrus notes as well. Yeast is flavorful and providing more esters and spice.
M: Bubbly crisp carbonation with a light to medium body.
D: It was 100 degrees when I drank this and it was very refreshing and flavorful. So satisfying it was begging me to have more. Seek it out it is hard to find but new to the US.

This beer poured out as a hazy golden yellow color. The head and lacing were pretty nice looking. The smell was citrusy and had some nice spices on the nose. The taste had some of the same basic elements. The flavors were spicy, floral, citrusy, and yeasty. As much flavor as it had it maintained it's light character and was quite refreshing on the mouthfeel. Overall the beer is pretty tasty and was a real rarity to see in the states.
