look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured into an Ommegang tulip. Decent sized, foamy, white head on top of a clear, golden-wheat, body. Leaves some light lacing. Quite clear for a belgian pale.

Bubblegum nose with fruity banana esters and just a hint of other spices. Not really a fan of the bubblegum aroma.

Light wheat/pilsen flavor with a touch of banana and clove. Slightly metallic on the finish. Fairly average.

Mouthfeel is well carbonated with a bit of booze on the finish. Dry metallic feel.

Overall, this is a pretty average Belgian pale. I'm not really digging the metallic notes and it seems a bit filtered for the style. Plus the ABV really shouldn't be as noticeable as it is. I wouldn't recommend this one.
