look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: poured from the bottle into a nonic pint. It is a cloudy yellow with a frothy white head that eventually compacts into a 3mm disk. lacing is not existent.

S: mild floral hops with strong bready yeast. Malts are largely for sugar and fermentation and not sweetness nor color in final product, as expected.

T: light peppery note with estery note then sweetness on swallow. Some bitter citrus near finish.

M: smooth, creamy and slick on initial, then a slight bitter note on mid then clean bready, breathy finish.

O: I think Belgian IPA is a tough style to master. This is a pleasant enough example, but it falls flat of perfect in a few areas.

Acquired via trade from Donkster46 so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a cloudy yellow color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, Belgian yeast, light caramelized malts, some hops and some spice.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of citrus, caramel and some spice. Then a decent hops presence comes in but it’s a bit weak for the style. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, mild kick, good representation of style, this is a decent beer to drink for a long time if you’re in the mood for the style.
