330ml bottle

A- Golden to amber in colour with a big, dense and perfectly white fluffy head that shows decent retention and leaves some lacing on the glass. A lot of carbonation is visible

S- Fresh and fruity, with probably some yeast in the mix. Fruit notes are of apple, peach, lemon. A lively spiciness may also be detected (esters)

T- Mild caramel malts, with a nice amount of fruity notes (apple, lemon). Not complex at all but quite strong. Very sweet

M- Thin body, with a nice amount carbonation to bring life. Oily on the palate

O- A nice refreshing and quaffable beer. It's overall sweetness is probably too dominant and gets quite boring after a while

4.26/5  rDev +17%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Dark golden color, slightly cloudy. Very thick white head.
Aroma: Good clean smell of  banana and spices.
Flavor: Banana and spice flavored with a sweet finish. Full bodied and good foamy carbonation.
Overall: A very good tasting beer. This is a spicy, sweet beer, with just enough hops to balance it out. The carbonation is like many Belgian Ales, not just  bubbly, but foamy to the mouth.

3.43/5  rDev -5.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle: a standard, solid brown 330mL bottle with a really chincy gold label with a pretty dodgy jester on it. Not a good package.

Appearance: poured into a tulip. A very hazy light yellow with a great solid finger of pure white head. Limited lacing, but the head hangs about for some time.

Aroma: quite a light and basic aroma of yeast, fruit and grain. Nothing brilliant, but refreshing.

Taste: the Belgian yeasts take the fore with some light grains and fruits backing up. Update: a very different flavour straight from the bottle - again with the yeast, but much more bitter with an odd metallic taste behind. I prefer straight from the bottle.

Aftertaste: lingers for a time, with a decent amount of bitterness.

Mouth feel: a decent mouth feel - medium in body with a moderate- to- higher carbonation. Carries the flavour well.

Overall: a pretty decent Belgian Pale Ale, with plenty of quality Belgian yeasts and some fruits and spices. The only real detractor is the truly catastrophic price of AU$150+ for a case of 24 x 300mL (2013), which is pretty close to the most expensive of the 600 beers I have had thus far. I can probably run a list of at least 50 beers that are better than this and cost 30 - 40% less.
