served in perhaps the coolest glassware known to man, this is a very light bodied stronger pale ale. pours hazy and pale, almost white in a dim lit pub, with a lasting white head, sexy looks. smells is less sexy, standard malts and belgian yeast, a little fruity, wheat, lemon rind. flavor is balanced but rather subtle for such a strong brew. its not watery in feel, but the flavor is very light, grassy and drinkable, but largely unexciting. feel is great, classic belgian effervescence and a less than medium body. plenty sessionable in my opinion, despite the invisible 7% abv. overall its a very well made beer, lacking somewhat in flavor, but could be good with a hearty cheeses and breads course. not bad at all.

Pours a slightly murky yellow with a white head that settles to a thin cap. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spices, grape juice, and alcohol. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer but it tastes better than it smells in my opinion.

Had this at palais des bieres in Geneva. Switzerland .

Pours a golden yellow color with a tinge of orange and a slight hazy transparency. Has a nice 2 finger head with a perfect white head and a lacing that tracks each sip. The aroma is of sour apples, lemon peel and a grassy hay like aroma, slightly sour. The taste is bright and vibrant, lack of malt favors hurt this beer and it's too acidic for my tastes. Nice cleansing feeling with the citrus but overall it's a pass for me if I am looking for a nice Belgian pale ale.

On tap at Cheeky Monk on Colfax the beer is served to a tulip. Arrives a brilliant hazy golden color with a 1.5 finger white head, some retention and lacing. The nose is rather mild with a strong biscuity malt character and a hint of citrus and pepper. The flavor is an improvement with an increased citrus character. Light biscuity malt blend nicely with a mild bitterness. Very approachable. No hint of alcohol. Finishes with a clean malty citrus flavor. Crisp and well carbonated and lighter medium bodied. Overall, an easy drinking Belgian for sure. I'd have another, refreshing.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: silvery-gold hue with a light haze and a very active effervescence. Head poured three fingers of frothy white foam which dissipates somewhat rapidly.

Smell: nice light, sweet malt with hints of orchard fruitiness which are whimsical and refreshing. Just what I like in a BSPA or tripel.

Taste: sweet malt with a lightness and more of the subtle orchard fruit flavors from the aroma. I find it highly satisfying, refreshing and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a big carbonation and bodacious creaminess. Very near perfect; this is exactly what I want out of a beer like this.

Overall: a very tasty and extremely enjoyable beer. This sort of thing is precisely to my taste. I love it.

Had this on bottle at the Beyerd, Breda, The Netherlands. The troll on the bottle is quit intriguing.

A: Pours a big fluffy head which stays for quite a while on the beer. A nice lacing stays the entire beer. Color is deep golden, quite what you expect for this style. Bravo.

S: Smell is moderate, no sharp smells of hop or grain. A bit citrusy.

T: This is what bothered me, the taste was not really strong, not what I would've expected. Hints of spices and citrus. Nice aftertaste but dissappeared rather quickly.

M: Mildly carbonated. Easily drinkable.

O: Quite a beer to clench your thirst with.

Review from 4/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip.
Pours a cloudy yellow-orange amber. Foamed out of the bottle on opening, aggressive carbonation. Massive white head and nice lacing. Pleasant light fruit (apples and citrus) and light Belgian spices aroma. Taste is similar, nice sweet light fruit, light Belgian spicing and a bit of hop kick. Fairly understated, but the flavors are well balanced and tasty. Not as good as the better Belgian Belgian strong dark ales, but I enjoyed drinking this.
