4.18/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours bright yellow with a thin veneer of white head that leaves receding lace on the glass.
Aroma is cracked grain, pale malt and citrusy hops.
Flavor is a beautiful blend of pale malts, grains and citrus with a distinct tangy bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel starts light and citrusy that then moves to a grainy, wheat bread middle and finishes with a tangy, herbal and citrus finish.
Drinkability is very good. Smooth and lush on the palate with nice transitions between grain, pale malts and the citrusy hops.

This is one of the better beers at Brewers Art. Unlike many Belgians, I find this one if very well balanced and definitely has some noticeable hop character. Of course the malts take precedence but do not to over the top. It is extremely drinkable and care must be taken since it is a bit stronger than the usual beer.

My favorite from the menu at The Brewers Art.
Listed as a Strong Pale Ale, it is truly that, though Dubel might be closer. I found the color to be a clear light gold, with medium head and fair amout of lacing. Compared to their Pale Ale, it is far superior.
The light malt flavor blended well with the moderate hopping and a spicy fragrance and finish as well.

I also had it on cask a while back, with some rosemary added, which was a special treat.

Unbelievable to be able to get a belgian of this quality at a $2 happy hour price.

Taste: Very clean flavors. Malt, citrus, spice, yeast.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and smooth, though almost a touch thin.

Drinkability: Very.

4.15/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Served chilled in a sample cup at RFD's Michael Jackson Beer Tasting.

Appearance: Clear straw yellow with active carbonation and a thick white head. A dense film of bubbles remained throughout consumption and left a thick sheet of lace on the plastic. I couldn't see through it, it was so thick.

Smell: Lemony and peppery aromas with some faint grass, clove, and banana notes. Mild whiffs of citrusy coriander.

Taste: No bat, dang. Light tastes of lemon and clove followed by a wheaty malt sweetness. Rather yeasty. More reminiscent of a wit than a strong pale, but good.

Mouthfeel: Very light in body and quite crisp and refreshing. So smooth that I don't believe this is 7.25% ABV... Gawdamn. Just a titch on the watery side, though.

Drinkability: Uber drinkable. I could see myself downing many a glass of this in one sitting.

Other: no spices are used in the making of this at all. It's all from the yeast.

From the tap at the Grey Lodge, this beer poured a clean and clear gold color. A thinning white head topped off this brew. Low carbonation. From this beer emits a strange egg like aroma, or it can maybe be described as a Sanford felt tip marker. The taste is light fruity and has a spicy, almost peppery hop bite. Lemon cough drop notes come out. Medium malt bodied beer and finishes sharp and clean with a light and peppery dryness and a dry spicy hop sting. This is an enjoyable beer that has a distinctiveness about it.

This was a most impressive beer from that remarkable brewery in Baltimore. I had the pleasure of trying this at the Grey Lodge last night in Philly. Quite a treat.

It poured with a nice, creamy head and a good golden color. The head lasted. It had a good smell as well. The taste can only be described as creamy. Quite excellent and unexpected. It is a milder type beer but given what it is trying to be has a ton of flavor. Given a high smoothness-factor, I'm giving this a good mouthfeel rating. The drinkability, given a relatively high alcohol content, is exceptional. Smooth and easy drinking.

This is now one of my favorites.

Straight 4's down the line on this solid brew,pours a lighter shade of gold with a nice big fluffy head that leaves some nice lacing.The aroma is yeasty and very citriusy.Seemed to be a very malt accented brew tastes of citruis and some light smokiness with a big malty finish.I have had 3 or 4 of The brewers Art beers and all seem to be pretty solid.

The beer was gold in color with a very thin head. The aroma was nice with some floral, citrus, and other sweet notes. The taste was as expected, malty and yeasty with some bitterness. The mouthfeel was thinner than expected. Very drinkable and satisfying. Overall I thought this was a mellow version of Duvel.

A clear yellow-gold body displays streams of very tiny bubbles rising steadily beneath a bright-white head of creamy foam. The retention is decent, and although it eventually drops to a thin but creamy collar, it does leave some very nice lace about the glass. The nose offers a distinct apple/pear fruit note amidst sweetish malt, slightly citrusy & floral hops, and a gentle spiciness (coriander?). The body is medium-light; and it's crisp in the mouth with a very fine carbonation that tickles the tongue. In the flavor, all of the elements found in the nose are carried over. It starts crisp and fruity (some light cherry?) on the front of the tongue with a low-key, fruit-like tartness; develops some malty sweetness and delicate spicy character as it crosses the palate; and finishes with a firm bitterness, a drying wash of alcohol, some low-key hop flavor, and a touch of residual fruity malt. Very well-balanced with a restrained spiciness! Flavorful, smooth yet crisp, and deceptively drinkable! Impressive!

This beer poured into the glass an amber color that had yellow/red hues to it when held up to the light, that was fairly clear. It produced a creamy white head that lasted fairly well to mid glass then formed a small film and ring on the sides of the glass. The aromas that came from the glass were of fruits, sweet malt, caramel, spices and floral hops. Nice balance to the aroma, each aroma seemed to be well pronounced. The tastes were full of flavor, good fruits (apples, oranges, pears), some spices (clove), rich malts, floral hops, citrus, alcohol, and some yeast. The aftertaste was rich in malt and fruit. It was medium bodied and big flavored. All flavors seemed to be very well pronounced and blended very well. A smooth drink, and somewhat sneaky because the flavors disguise the alcohol very well. A really good beer from this brewery.
