A-Pours a hazy golden color. Big, fluffy white head. Head retains for the entire glass. Lots of lace.

S-Belgian Pale all the way. Yeasty and fruity with some noble hops. On par with the style.

T-More of the same here. It is very agreeable. It doesn't overpower my palate with too much candied fruity flavors. Its not too bold in one area of flavor. Not too yeasty, which I am also happy with.

M-Drinks very easily but the booze does sneak up to the back of the tongue. Medium bodied and somewhat crisp.

O/D-My palate doesn't always agree with Belgian Pales. This one I enjoyed with ease. A pretty tasty take on the style.

Purchased at 99 Bottles.
Appearance: Clear gold with tall white head. Leaves beautiful soft lace on top.
Smell: Dry apple and slightly tart fruit.
Taste: Sweet with a good dose of boozy character. A bit of plum or pear flavor. Light spice notes, coriander perhaps.
Mouthfeel: Full and slippery after feel. Very smooth, medium to high carbonation.
Overall: Quite good. Only complaint is it's a little too sweet for my palate.
