look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Pretty good looking. Amazing viscous head, lasts a while with some quickly dried up foamy lacing. Not a big fan of the color.. sort of a stereotypical beer color but there's nothing wrong iwth it.
The aroma is almost too much for my 1 unclogged nostril to handle. Sort of a pungent Belgian smell. I'm not a huge Belgian fan in general and it comes off to me as smelling like bleach. Otherwise very floral to sort of an extreme, like smelling a scented candle.
The taste again follows the bleachy smell. Maybe I'm sensitive to this because some of my early homebrews had problems with phenols, but this is a phenol phuck phest. Sweet and tart around the edges with a hint of alcohol.
You can tell the beer is bottle conditioned because it feels a bit foamy immediately when it enters your mouth. Drinkability not so much.
I'm having trouble finishing this. I don't think it's bad per say. I read in BA mag that some people were claiming it's too young and I think I tend to agree. Never been a big fan of Belgian Pale Ales in the first place- the Belgians I really like are the Strong Dark Ales but I wanted to try this out. I'm going to save the rest of the 4-pack for a few months and try again.

Appearance - Medium copper color with an off-white medium textured airy head with some lace remaining after the head dissipates.
Smell - Lightly soured banana like fruit aroma followed by light sweet alcohol and spicy resiny hops.
Taste - Sweet malt and lightly soured fruit followed by sweet alcohol with a spicy resiny hop finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium viscosity that is clean and light feeling with moderate carbonation, light bitterness, and a mild alcohol warmth as the beer goes down.
Overall - Well balanced with a light feel and very good flavor that gets better as the beer warms closer to stout serving temperature.
