I have gotten out of the habit of reviewing beers here, but as this is from a new Richmond brewery (and I really ought to support the home teams more often), I thought I should add my opinion.
Not sure what to make of this as an example of a Belgian Pale Ale, though of course Belgian Pale Ale is such a broad category that while I'm not sure it fits here, neither am I sure that it does not.
They certainly got the carbonation right, and I love the full, flowing Belgian head (which lingers nicely). Aroma is flowery with a little dusky pepper; not bad. I detect an aftertaste, though, that I am not fond of - sort of a cousin to what one gets from a bad lager, a bit sour, a bit off. Mouthfeel is also average - despite the carbonation, it becomes thin and watery too soon.
Overall, though, not a bad start.
