I found this single 330ml brown bottle at the Binny's store in Plainfield, IL. Clearly marked best before date on the back label. This one says 9-14-2011 so it's plenty fresh.
The beer poured a clear, dark amber color that produced a 1-finger white head that lasted a minute or so and left some decent lacing.
The beer has a bit of skunkiness to it, but not as bad as a Heineken. Other than that, the beer has a mild biscuity malt smell along with a whiff of mixed fruit, and even milder herbs and spices.
Really nice flavor. Honey kissed biscuity malt is the predominant flavor but the sweetness is kept in check with a small dose of peppery spice. Not much hop presence until the finish when a bit of mild bitterness comes through. I'm not usually a fan of pale ales, but this one is good.
Light, crisp, and refreshing mouthfeel with lively carbonation.
Easy to drink and enjoyable to drink.

i found a sixer at the local grocer without having tried this ,tossed it into the cart along with some chub scottish ale for backup in case it was one of those corporate labelling blaaah wanna be ales supposedly from Belgium.
dissapointed ! smell ,taste etc. where ?? no hops , flavor where ? it's boring! which i dont use to often just junk Fast brewer crapola
go back to brewer school this is a ripoff with a neat looking box and bla bla bla on what it is ..well it ain't a Belgian Ale
we make better belgian styles such as Ommegang here in the USA
serving pint glass at 60° ,2 finger artificially carbonated head which fades to cacaraca no hops baloney in past reviews, malt where ?
a good easy to find benchmark of traditional Belgian ales is Chimay, Trappist ale dubel tripel etc... barley ..barley barley /// usa Ommegang Ales
like totall barley mind blowing good
this is a correct review of this beer ,save your money. NEXT
