A: The beer is slightly hazy golden yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with lots of fine particulates floating in suspension. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of grassy and earthy yeast are present in the nose along with notes of peppery spices.
T: Like the smell, the overall taste has lots of flavors of grassy and earthy yeast along with hints of grainy malts and lemons while the finish is mostly dominated by flavors of peppery spices. The lemons become a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied and rather dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. The peppery spices in the back end of the taste make your tongue prickle a little bit.
O: The lighter nature of the body and lemony flavors make this a nice beer for the summer that goes down easily.

12oz into tulip glass.

Pours a hazy, pale golden yellow with a craggy, billowy white head with great retention and spotty lacing.

Floral, lightly spicy hop character blending into light, phenolic clove notes from the Belgiam yeast.

Medium+ body, foamy, mild carbonation.

Nothing particularly unique about this one, just a very well done Belgian pale ale.

Substantial moderately dense head that laces nicely. Golden hued with a an unfiltered look.

Smells great... Hips come through with some Spicer overtones.

Tastes lovely. Very reminiscent of Foret. Yeasty spice with some hop bitterness and some hop florals on top.

Mouth feel is silky.

Overall, was quite impressed. This is definitely a beer I could make a night out of.
