4.23/5 rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Pours a fairly hazy golden-yellow color. The white head is reasonably large, with medium density. Retention is good. Some nice lacing sticks to the glass.
S: There's a pleasant honey-on-a-biscuit aroma up front. Quite fruity underneath those initial tones. Big notes of white grape and peach, with secondary notes of pear and granny smith apple. Hop aroma is pretty light, with faint herbal and perfumey character. A bit of light, dusty spiciness and alcohol is also noticeable.
T: Some dry, faintly graint maltiness up front, with some light sugary notes. Hops crash in with some drying bitterness and very light herbal flavor. Fruity notes lurk throughout; white grape acidity, stone fruit vibrancy, and apple/pear sweetness are prominent. A bit of clove-like spice adds depth. Alcohol is mildly apparent.
M: Medium-light body. Carbonation is fine but quite perky, adding a nice prickle to the mouthfeel. Dryness, as expected, hits hard toward the finish. Alcohol adds a bit of heat, but it's within expectations for the style.
O: I like this one a lot. It's vibrant and tasty while remaining fairly approachable - perhaps because it's a bit less phenolic than some other Belgian-style pales. A fruity, dry, and drinkable winner.

On tap at Brewer's Art. From notes.
A - Golden pour with a bright body. Two fingers of fluffy white head and no visible carbonation. Spotty lace and a half finger retention.
S - Nice honey and yeast with a sweet grain note.
T - Nice and sweet with grain and honey. Not spicy like some examples of the style. Mild hops. Nice flavour.
M - Strong carbonation, medium to full body and a dry finish.
O/D - Good stuff. Nailed the style in the ways that I wanted it to. Dangerously drinkable. Strong Belgian Pale Ales don't need to be really complex or over the top, just have the requisite components that have made this style world famous. This was better than most North American takes on the style.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a matchy-matchy Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Best by 07/12/2014 stamped on the bottom.
A: Hazy, light-to-golden yellow with 1 finger of white head. Ok retention. Moderately heavy lacing.
S: Earthy fruit and light spice. Banana. Cardamom. Coriander. Lemon. Orange. Pale malt notes of grass, straw, bread. Vanilla. Very nice nose!
T: Fruit, earth and spice with a minimal sweetness rapidly carry into a nicely present hop bitterness that is more assertive than average for the style. Fairly dry finish. Touch of funkiness. Some bready malt breaks through. The complexity and intrigue of the scents are somewhat lost on the palate. Does improve as it warms. Slight alcohol.
M: Moderate carbonation with a certain creaminess. Moderate to light body. Smooth drinker for sure.
O: Solid brew in a can. Haven't had it on tap for a while - I should venture downtown and refresh my memory. Bonus points for locality. Just wish all the great smells made it onto my tongue.

The beer has Belgian yeast character, breadiness, lemon peel, citrus, and some pepper.
The flavor follows of refreshing lemon, lemon peel, a bready body. The beer dries off of peppery spice and coriander. There's a lingering yeast note on the finish.
A well made Belgian brew that is packaged in a cool can with a fist.
