3.55/5  rDev -12.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a St. Bernardus chalice. Batch 11

APPEARANCE

This brew is a really light straw color. When first poured, it was almost crystal clear, but a bit of yeast came up and added some haze. The head was pure white and about a finger. It disappeared fast, and left no lacing. It looks like a nice refreshing beer.

SMELL

Fairly light in the nose, but nice. There's some nice banana aroma, sort of like a weissbier. There is some light sweetness and malt, followed by a bit of bread aroma. The Belgian yeat is present, but not as overpowering as other Belgian pale ales. Nice aroma!

TASTE

Again, very light but pleasant. Very slight Belgian yeast spice, such as clove. It is followed by slight banana flavor. There's just a tinge of sweetness to round it out. There's a bit a malt in there, but overall the flavors are extremely light without being watery.

MOUTHFEEL

This beer is super drinkable. It's nice and dry, leaving only a little residual sweetness on the tongue. The carbonation is medium-high.

OVERALL

This is a nice little beer. I don't normally like Belgian style pale ales, but this is nice. It's mild enough to be really drinkable while having enough complexity to satisfy.

Cheers.

Pours a hazy straw with a small quickly fading white head. Lacing was excellent. Smells of lemon, clove, and banana with hints of light sourness and yeast. Grassy, earthy hops with hints of lemon and sourness. Medium light bodied with high level of carbonation. Overall, a supremely drinkable sour pale.
