look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. No identifiable date.

A: Hazy, golden yellow body with 2-3 fingers of rocky, white head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Yeasty spice with slightly musty, earthy notes. Floral, noble-type hops. Faint soap. Cracker. Grass. Hints of candi sugar.

T: The yeast opens with a bit of spice. Leads into a bit of lightly fruity, pale malt sweetness before a mildly bitter, nicely hopped finish. Mostly dry and pretty clean. Alcohol is present, but light for 8.5% ABV.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with a light to medium body. A bit prickly, but suits the flavors reasonably well.

O: Tasty brew with a pleasant hopping. Nicely balanced. Reminiscent of Duvel with the fruit and complexity dialed back a bit. Pretty quaffable, for sure.

Prost!

Appearance: A bursting head with rocky and voluminous form. Crystal clear, and almost totally bright yellow. Silvery colored head. Head retention and lacing are very very nice. Beautiful bubbles on the head after it sits.

Nose: Lemon meringue, lime, hint of white crackers and banana.

Taste: Perfect malt balance. A little medicine, aspirin, sweet bread, and meringue.

Notes: Give this one a try!

11.2 ounce bottle served cold in glass beer challis.

A) Bright but hazy golden brew. Off white puffy head, settles quickly.

S) Sweet and tart citrus fruit with mild esters and hint of bitter hops.

T) Delicious and classic Belgian pale/blonde ale. Sweet and fruity. Hint of banana, apple and apricot. Refreshing

M) Ample, fine bottle conditioned carbonation. Smooth and drinkable.

O) Good example of this category. Hard to find...
