look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Chimay goblet.
A - Thin, lacey head that dissipates quickly. Hazy straw-gold color.
S - Yeasty, sour-tart smell. Typical of the style.
T - Citrusy start and distinct hoppy notes. Alcohol warmth with a lightly sweet malt finish.
M - Finely carbonated, almost champagne like mouthfeel with a touch of alcohol warmth.
Not as overly spiced or citrus heavy as other Belgian beers. The alcohol is hidden well and it is surprising light for its ABV. It would be a great session beer if the ABV were lower. Very refreshing grand cru.

4.48/5 rDev +13.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Blown away by the head on this beer. Super, super think and creamy. Close to two fingers and piercingly bright. Very comparable to the head of Duvel or Orval. Bubbles race to the top like there's no tomorrow. For a Golden Pale Ale, this of the nicest beers I've seen in a long, long time.
Smell - Extra citrusy on the nose. Lemon, tang, orange zest, banana and bread. Slightly sour (in a good way), dry and hoppy. Clean and fresh on the nose.
Taste - Extra vanilla compared to most Belgian Pale Ales. Lots of tropical fruits notes, too. These are two very unique features to this beer compared to others in this style. Tropical fruits: mango, banana and pineapple. Also, apple, coriander, vanilla, lemon, cloves, sourdough bread, white bread, more vanilla, pilsner malt, pale malts, clear candi sugar, noble hops and tangy rich fruits.
Mouthfeel - Perfect. High carbonation with so much zap. This brings this beer to life and ties it all together. Lively and dry. Very impressive.
Overall - I will definitely be buying a handful of these. I would love to enjoy two in a row. One 330 ml bottle is just not enough. This is a beautiful beer that stays true to the style, yet stands out with its use of tropical fruit tang, while bolstering plenty of vanilla. A perfectly balanced, dry, hoppy, sugary masterpiece.
