Picked up a can from the brewery in Baltimore, poured into a Delirium Tremens tulip.
A - Pours a crystal clear golden color with a light fluffy white head with a great retention. The beer is clear enough that I can read text through my glass. The head leaves a soapy retention down to the bottom of the glass.
S - Very floral and yeasty aroma with a light hop bitterness. The aroma is perfectly balanced, you get a nose-ful when you take a deep whiff, but not overwhelming.
T - The taste offers very little of the smell that got me excited about this beer. The taste is just a light bitter mess that tastes like an old pale ale. I bought a fresh six pack from the brewery, so I doubt it's aged. The aftertaste is just flat bitterness, similar to very bitter chocolate. I'll drink it but am certainly not impressed.
M - Mouthfeel is flat, bland and watery. There is a slight bubbly bite at the end, but not much going.
Overall, this beer isn't a winner. The aroma and appearance thought this would be an out of the park home run, but the taste and mouthfeel left me disappointed. Brewer's Art makes much better stuff.

Had this on 2014-04-20 in Columbia, PA
A - Pretty clear gold with a 2-finger white head that drops to 1/2-finger pretty quickly and leaves nice lace.
S - Belgian yeast, wet straw, pale malt, tangy-earthy spice.
T - White cake with lemon-glazed icing, then some pear flesh and lemon zest, white pepper, lots of spice. Belgian yeast flavor is apparent but more subdued than in the aroma. The aftertaste retains some lemon icing flavor with the addition of mint and then some mild-moderate bitterness that doesn't last long. Lots going on here; but well-balanced.
M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Smooth with a little prickle. Dries nicely.
O - Didn't know what to expect with this brew and was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't taste like anything I've had before. Definitely a kludge of styles. Thumbs up.

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.
