Lovely, pale golden body with an appearance that is not quite opaque. Snowy, rocky head sits proudly atop leaving gobs of sticky lacing in its wake.
Spicy from the yeast, floral from the hops with plenty of barnyard and tang thrown in from the malt. This is what I expect from the style.
Much more malt sweetness on the palate with only moderate spice on the finish and really no mustiness to speak of whatsoever. A straightforward, if unadventurous, take on the classic Belgian pale ale.
Full-bodied with brisk carbonation expected from the aggressive Belgian yeast. A strong beer that would limit drinkability if looking to make a night out of it. However, very mild on the tongue if this were to be part of a tasting or if one had plans of switching beers for the evening at some point.
