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

A: A hazy pale orange with a big effervescent white head. Fades slowly, leaving quite decent patchwork behind.

S: Lots of lemon up front. Grainy, yeasty bread. Touch of grass perhaps?

T: Lemony for sure. Sharp lemons in fact with just a touch of grass. Get a hint of melon for just a brief moment. Very grainy and yeasty in the middle. Pepper kicks in, lots and lots of black pepper. Finishes very spicy with lots of pepper and a hint of that lemon again.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and crisp.

O: A delicious and tasty BSPA. Lots of spicy black pepper on the back end so I hope you like that in your beer. Great combination of strong fruitiness, yeastiness and spiciness.

Serving type: can

4.09/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Four-finger head that recedes in a lumpy fashion. It also leaves a decent dome. A bit cloudy with a dark, dirty gold color.

Grainy, raw barley smell. A bit of lemongrass. Some Belgian yeast nose as well.

Classic pale Belgian flavors: Some very pale malt, a good dollop of hop bitterness, the aforementioned yeast and a solid alcohol warmth, particularly in the swallow. Well-balanced. The body is as I would expect; the carbonation slightly above average.

Serving type: can
