Rustic yeast aromas and coriander. In the beginning metallic taste originating from the yeast and later coriander dominates. Fruity and some tartness. refreshing and smooth. interesting quenchable beer.

11.2 oz brown bottle

Seef Bier changed the color of my clear tulip glass to a foggy yellow hue forming a 1 1/2-finger white head. The aromas of citrus, floral/grassiness and are herbal dominate. The taste matches the aroma with notes of yeast and light pepper added. The mouth feel is medium-bodied, a little dry with a generous amount of carbonation.

Overall, Seef is a pleasant Belgian Pale Ale making it easy to have another.

Fairly fruity representation of the style, with pleasant yeast esters and a dry finish. Seems a bit flat in flavor, overall.

Picked up this beer a few weeks back, not quite remembering if I bought this in New York or up in Totowa. Had no idea of this beer's history until I saw the other reviews on here and wasn't sure what to expect of this. Yes, this was a Belgian beer in terms of origin and look but this went down about as easily as any BPA that I've ever had and quite possibly, for any Belgian beer that I've ever reviewed for this site. If you're looking for complexity, depth, and booze, those are certainly not to be found here!

At first, the pour to this was clear and golden with a head that quickly filled up my pint glass before quickly settling down to a more standard finger or two. The lacing was only a ring or two after the first sips and there was a *lot* of sediment to pour out of the bottom of the bottle. Once that was swirled out, the hue of this changed to a dark, golden brown that swirled around for a bit before settling down and giving this the appearance of something unfiltered.Lots of yeast, carbonation, clove, and banana to be found here with a hint of allspice and a faint resemblance of a Saison. I couldn't believe how easily this went down and how this wasn't categorized properly, from a taste perspective.

Sure, the booze is here but like the sediment, it's seemingly at the bottom of the bottle as I had to drink this down before I could feel it. While not anything bad, the body was weak and only a hint of lemon pepper served as a reminder that this was a BPA. Worth a go once for something light and effervescent but anything from Ommegang or overseas would handily trump this.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

LOOK: Pours a very pale, bright golden color with a large cloud like head. Exceptional clarity for a Belgian ale, and very dense head of tightly beaded bubbles.

SMELL: Floral hints, dough, and sweet malts make up the bitter sweet aroma. Just a hint of citrus and cracker rounds out the smell.

TASTE: A mellow tasting pale with light and agreeable flavors. Crisp, nearly tart Belgian yeast is the highlight here, with a citrus element most notably from the yeast and small part due to noble hop. A gold cup winner in the World Beer Cup, there is little mystery as to why. Bready, almost cracker like malt flavor, vague yet deep sweetness, a complimentary earthy bitterness, and ultra clean in the finish,

FEEL: Light bodied ale that is refreshing and oh so crispy clean. Semi dry finish and a prefect level of semi-dry carbonation.

OVERALL: Have to agree with the judges of the 2012 World Beer Cup. This is a very high quality Belgian pale ale. I would revisit this often if it was easier to acquire in these parts. Very good!

Very pale. Fruity nose - almost like apples. Light, crisp and mildly fruity.

Just a bit too light and bland form taste.
