A: Cloudy yellow brown oxidated pineapple juice colour, a finger of creamy yellowish white head. Sexy whipped cream like lacing and a ton of yellowish floaties settled after a few minutes.

S: Cereal malts, sweet, light, fruity

T: A song in my mind goes lalalalala- its so fresh, sweet, and balances with bitter hops, caramel and a little fruitiness, slight blue cheese like bite.

M: Thick, slightly syrupy, bready body.

O: Drank at In De Vred, Vleteren, Nov 27, 2013. I am loving this experience. Like a ride through farmers fields to get here. I had a plate of their cheese and bread with it.

330ml bottle served in a Rochefort goblet. Best before 11/21/2014

Appearance: Pours a hazy light orange color with 1 finger of a white head. Good retention and lacing. Body is very hazy with a quite a bit of visible yeast sediment and lots of visible carbonation.

Smell: Apple, pear, pepper, clove, banana and a slight grassy character.

Taste: Banana, big spicy Belgian yeast character, a touch of grassy hops, crackery malt and maybe a touch of lemon in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium, bordering on high. Finishes dry with a very mild bitterness.

Overall: A really nice Belgian pale ale, and if this were available on a shelf, I'd probably pick it up with semi regularity. However, since it's not, I wouldn't recommend going to any great lengths to obtain it.
