Bottle purchased from Piccadilly in Champaign, IL.

Poured into a St. Bernadus chalice at slightly below room temperature.

Pours a large, 1.5cm head of small bubbles that's fairly pure white in color. This decreases over time to leave a thin membrane of bubbles across the top along with some extensive lacing. Despite decanting carefully, beer is an opaque golden-orange color with what must be some active carbonation to support the continued foam. I don't think a BPA gets better looking than this.

Aroma is faintly tart, of green apples and slight lemon zest. This mingles with some malt sweetness, hop bitterness, and generic sweet fruit scents. Not particularly strong in this category: subdued, but pleasant.

Taste opens with malt sweetness, transitions to a mix with hop bitterness. Fairly standard. Towards the end, there is some nice, bright fruit flavors brought in by hoppiness and yeast metabolites (esters, anyone?). Aftertaste is grain-like, lightly bitter. Overall, very pleasant and drinkable. Would've enjoyed some of the complex fruit aromas to play out in the taste.

This is a fairly light-bodied beer, with carbonation that's adequate, but perhaps overly aggressive for the body's weight. Finish is semi-dry, and pleasing. Still, this so overly carbonated that it foams up in the mouth.

This is, overall, a very enjoyable, drinkable take on the Belgian Pale Ale style. The aroma and taste are to be recommended, though neither are particularly strong. Another Two Brothers beer I will keep my eye out for.
