250ml bottle, a so-called 'loan' from a friend's 6-bottle, 1-glass gift pack. Not really sure how this one differs from the "Speciale" listing on this site.
This beer pours a very hazy, finely sediment-strewn medium golden straw colour, with two fingers of thinly puffy, foamy off-white head, which leaves nothing but a low wash of shoreline lace around the glass as it rather quickly abates.
It smells of semi-sweet grainy, bready pale malt, earthy yeast, very mild generic citrus pith, and some understated floral, leafy hops. The taste is fairly consistent, with a sweet grainy, somewhat toasty malt, laid-back yeast, a subtle fleshy orange fruitiness, and somewhat perfumed leafy hops.
The bubbles are rather sedate, the body a decent medium weight, and generally pretty smooth. It finishes off-dry, the bready pale malt still most prevalent, as the yeast and hops dwindle to a dull echo.
A pleasant enough BSPA, one whose alcohol and yeast are kept well in check, which makes things all the more agreeable to this camper. I may have to bogart another of these little bottles from my source.

3.45/5 rDev -2.3%
250ml served in a Leffe chalice.
A: Pours pale a light cloudy yellow color forming a medium white bubbled head. Low retention and only very few lacings left
S: Sweet grains and bread. Flowery hops and a little bit of alcohol in the very end
T: Follows the nose. Sweet and grainy upfront. Notes of honey. Stingy hoppy bitterness in the end. In overall, a dry beer
M: Quite light body to a Strong Pale Ale. Medium carbonation. Aftertaste is a combination of sweet grains and light citrus hops
O: Medium drinkability but I was expecting more from a Dubuisson beer
