App- A solid mix of oranges and yellows in the glass. A solid 2 finger white head with a good amount of cling. A good amount of density in the center. A fair amount of cling.

Smell- A solid bit of malts mixed with yeasty green apples and a bit of prickly booze.

Taste- For a pale ale it was tasty. Yeasty, apples and a bit of hoppy balance.

Mouth- A bit of a light body with a medium yeasty carbonation.

Drink- Nice, balanced and prickly. For a intro Belgian this is easy to drink and drinkable.

Poured from a 33cl bottle into a tulip.

Appearance- Big white 3-finger head, mixture of bubble sizes. Body is crystal clear yellow. Head is very lasting.

Aroma- Clove and banana, can smell the yeast, not much else.

Flavor- Decent Belgian yeast flavors come through, more clove, sweet light malt, very mild bitterness. I am having trouble smelling/tasting the hops in this.

Mouthfeel- Light with lively carbonation.

A pleasant but uninteresting ale. Reminds me of a clear, sweet hefe.

11.2 ounce bottle served cold in glass beer challis.

A) Bright polished brass, clear. Small white head disappears in moments

S) Citrus Fruit and spice. Mild alcohol esthers.

T) Sweet caramel with mild but bitter hopps finish. Browned malt.

M) Ample carbonation; a bit thin. Crisp.

O) I like this beer though I believe it diverts from its Belgian Ale roots. Sort of the Kolsch of Belgians
