A very impressive 4.8 abv beer. Rich and tasty, I could drink several of these. Pours a cloudy honey gold color into a Stone tulip. Big white head..delicate bubbles but the end result is a big, healthy frothy head. head retention is very good and there is some spotty patches of filmy lacing. If the tulip, this beer looks like a print beer ad.

Aroma is prominent as well. Belgian yeast, cloves, lemon and malt. Very inviting.

Taste is very good as well. The ingredients from the aroma are nicely blended and strong. A light, flavorful, yeasty Belgian beer.

Mouthfeel is smooth and rich. Would expect this beer had a much higher abv. There is still a lightness about it and a little astringency, Very nice.

Overall, an excellent summer brew, very enjoyable.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A classic looking Belgian pale. Big dolloped whip white head on top. Supper creamy like icing and bright white with sheets of lacing down the sides. Body color is a classic opaque lemon yellow to darker brown, with good pin head white lines of rising carbonation all along the sides of the glass. A little dull, but still a good looking brew.

Big clove like notes on this, and phenols. Spicy brown and dry, with a bit of crisp malt to it as well. Some light sucrose but not much, pretty straightforward.

That sharp stinging phenol and spice really hits the palate. Hop spiced herbal finish and lots of warmth, making it seem larger than 4.8% abv. Crisp bodied and light, hints of floral sweetness and a real subtle complex quality. Chewy sweet breads, mild honey and vanilla, hop stinging bitterness, and soda quinine flavor and dryness.

What a real nice pale addition to the family to be having on the other side of the pond. Delicious.
