Poured into Ommegang tulip
A- pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a huge rocky, foamy and pillowy head that sustains even five minutes after the pour. As the head finally dissapates, it leaves thick patches of lace behind, just as a Belgian pale ale should
S- characteristic Belgian yeast aromas provide slight phelonic note,with notes of clove, earthy & musty yeast and light fruity notes
T- light fruity notes compliments the Belgian yeast with some peppery accents, and slight phelonic flavors. The malt is dry and cracker-like and the hops are subdued but noticeable. The finish is dry with more phenols.
M- medium-light body with moderate carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish
O- a great Belgian pale that is always available. This paired very well with roasted quail. Always a good choice on its own or with food.

Pint in Alfie's on 9th Ave, New York on 18 Jan 2013: chalk board called it a 'Belgian style Amber' with 'Rare Vos' as an afterthought in brackets.
Belgian style Amber it is though, very drinkable in deed.
Slight cloud within the pour: light amber to dull gold in colour with a thinning white head on top.
The aroma was a mixed bag of smells, yeast, corriander and malts in that order.
The taste followed the smells too: add some grain feel into the blend, this was an easy drinking semi-sweet brew that I took too greatly: couldn't have another though, too many others to try!
