Had this for the first time at the brewery in Baltimore. It pours a pale, straw color, which wasn't expected for this style, but still appealing. Nice retaining head and low subtle lacing.
The aroma is of fruit, undertones of fresh hops and Belgian funky yeast. Wheat aromas and slight sugar, but not expected for the style.
Good taste, front of honey, wheat, good dry hops, funk, pears. More like a pale ale than strong Belgian ale. After talking with the brewer and owner it makes a bit more sense why the overall appearance, smell and taste say nothing of the actual style. They claim yeast variations and alterations in hop use change the outcome in each batch. That's fine, but it's pretty far from a typical Belgian strong.
Nice full mouthfeel, good carb, flows throughout the mouth.
Drinkability is good, would definitely have another.

a - poured a one finger thick off-white head into a snifter that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was a bright, pale golden color.
s - bready with honey aromas as well. apples and some floral aromas come through as well.
t - same as above with the fruitiness more pronounced. the hops really shine through here too.
m - creamy, slick and coating.
o - excellent beer and stands up to the classics in this style.

A: Poured into a FFF Teku (since its the most Metalz glass I own) the bright white head persisted at a finger tall for a good minute before slowly receding to a thin layer tiny bubbles. The brew is a moderate to highly hazy golden yellow color with a constant stream of bubbles coming up the edge of the glass.
S: Mild to medium strength spicey phenols coming through from the yeast. mild grapefruit and citrus hop aroma balances nicely with the phenols. Some lemon and funky almost saisonish aromas coming through. Good balance overall.
T: The earthy, spicey phenols come through prominently in the taste. Yeast plays a big role in this beer. The lemon zest and citrus flavor also seem to be contributing flavors from the yeast. The hop bitterness is moderate with the balance being.. on the yeast side but balanced on the hop/malt side with maybe a liiitle bit more on the hop side. A slight bready character but malt is very much takes a back seat in this beer. The dirt/earth flavor gets stronger as the beer warms up.
M: Moderately high to high levels of carbonation, almost sharp on the palette. Very dry finish which ads to the feeling of carbonation. No astringency but there is abit of alcohol warmth making the drinkability in moderate.
O: A tasty beer overall the phenols are kept in check even though the yeast is the star in this beer. The hop character comes through more so when it warms up and it gets more drinkable.
