3.83/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

750ml, corked, caged, and canned for good measure. It forms a VERY agressive head, thick and soapy white over a clear effervescent pale gold. The smell is soapy (power of suggestion?), sugary, and full of clean grains. The taste is pleasantly chalky, with a sharp hop note at first and then a pleasant malt back & a bone dry finish that hints of oranges and floral hops. The mouthfeel is not as carbonated as it looks but certainly not lacking. It is slick but light. Drinkability is good, not too assertive to have a few. All in all, a nice pale ale & a good alternative to Duvel, albeit in a much higher price range. It is subtle but well-crafted.

It pours into a nice head and amber color. Medium carbonation. No significant aroma or flavor other than a tiny bit flowery. At room temp the carbonation is gone and smells like a pilsener Urquell. Tastes like an Urquell but not so dry. Drink it while is cold and forget about it.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a decent white head with a solid retention.
There is a weak malty aroma, aided by some yeasty smell too.
The taste is somewhere between bitter and sweet, All together finishing with a slight spicey feel.
A very decent beer.
