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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Specialty Beer Cellar. Served in a goblet.

Appearance - Broght orange. Hazy. Huge white head. Lasts a long Tim.

Smell - Light citrus. Belgian yeast. Lightly phenolic. Grainy cracker malt aroma.

Taste - Very grainy. Yeasty flavors are strong. Flavorful for being so light. Phenolic. Bright herbal hop flavor lingers.

Mouthfeel - Medium light. Well carbonated.

Overall - I rather enjoyed this. I could drink a few of these without getting bored.

Serving type: on-tap
