330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense white head with solid retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, grape, honey, candi sugar, bread, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, clove, band aid, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid balance and complexity; a bit too medicinal. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, floral, grass, light clove/pepper, musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, grape, bread, honey, candi sugar, herbal, grass, floral, light clove/pepper, must, and yeast earthiness. Nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good Belgian pale ale. Good balance, robustness, and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

11.2 fl oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this oddity on sale at the local Binny's. My first encounter with this brewery, and my first encounter with what describes itself as a 'singel' abbey ale. Unfiltered & bottle conditioned. I have no idea what to expect!

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Gusherrrr! My second encounter with a gusher. Poured two fingers of fluffly bubbly white head on top of a burnt orange yellow colored body with some dark flecks of sediment. Not remarkable, but it looks pretty nice when it comes down to it.

S - Smell is of musty yeast, green apples, some vinegar acidity, some earthy woody caramel malt, a bit soapy. Smells pretty nice.

T - Taste is of spritzy yeast, earthiness, wheat, husky grains, corn, sour green apple, lemongrass. This definitely surprised me.

M - Feel is crisp and clean, with mild grain and tartness on the finish. Very nice.

Overall, I was very pleasantly surprised. I would definitely be interested in having more of this, and this surely has me interested to try more of the style. Recommended.

Witkap Pater Singel ---4/5.
