Really interesting Belgium ale. Pour was cloudy, orange and the head was superb; about 1/2 inch and held nicely through the tasting. Smell was yeasty with just a hint of hop aromatics. Smooth, malty, fruity finish with a slightly tart bitterness at the finish. Very refreshing beer. This one has grown on me over the last few years. A few of my friends that don't typically like Belgium ales liked this one.

Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Small chunks of sediment are seen floating around in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, and some fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, grass, and fruity flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a nice balance between fruity and hoppy characteristics.

Good head. A ring of lace after every sip. Very impressive actually. Very cloudy. Orange tinge to the dirty gold color.

Earthy and yeasty are the first smells I detect. There's an element of lavender as well. I do not sense any hop or grain.

Plenty of Belgian yeast in this beer--it's the predominant taste. There's a creamy and mildly sour finish. Short lived. Rich body and a low level of carbonation.

is this a blonde? a pale ale? or a light saison? it's got a little of them all in it, but if I had to choose one, I'd say saison - on the mellower side

the liquid is a dank, hazy blonde/light-creme-orange. ridiculous head retention - poured the beer and had to go away for a good 10 min, came back and the head was still tight and full, 1/2" high. pretty impressive

aromas of bready pale malt, creme-y mango and lemon, and a healthy portion of musty/musky spice come forth with a bit of gusto and the same flavors liven up a bit more on the palate. i could swear there's a good portion of wheat in this considering the degree of fluffy softness on the tongue. could be getting a bit of malt sweetness in the end as well.

i believe this bottle is/was in the ballpark of 9+ months old, which would account for the fact that, despite numerous testments to its relative assertive hop presence, I didn't get much of a notable bitterness, while some hop flavor may very well have been intact, perhaps similar to a Styrian Goldings?...

this isn't terribly dry and it's hardly spicy-sharp, which is nice. a nice, satisfying, smooth-ass, tasty Belgian pale whatever. surprisingly good.

A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high frothy bright white head that died down a bit but consistently left a layer of bubbles covering the surface, a thick collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing down the sides.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of Belgian and fruity yeast in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has some additional notes of sweet malts and hints of peppery spices and honey. The spices become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer nearly rivals the complexity of a Belgian Strong Pale Ale but is lighter in body and very easy to drink.
