Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Brice is a clear beer bottle to the brilliant and slightly veiled even seen its fermentation. A fine white foam that sticks to the glass covers blonde fresh nose well balanced hop flavor with a hint of spice. Beer said special but easy to drink anyway ... It will be wary of its alcohol content.

Bottle-conditioned, coming in short, 330ml brown Belgian beer bottle. BB June 2007, served lightly chilled in a large Burgundy bulb wine glass.

A: bright but translucent golden hue, a restrained, rimmed white beer head sits on top of very fine and lively carbonation. Looking really nice.
S: lovely aroma~~ pilsner malts intertwine elegantly with an herbal edge of lemon grass and dryish spicy yeastiness like freshly grated ginger plus coriander; sweet lemony fruitiness from hops sustains in the background, accompanying the equally subtle syrupy maltiness and candy-sugar, while a flow of warming alc. only sneaks out in the remote corner. Not at all rich or bold, benefiting from the spicy edge as a brilliant balancer.
T: sour-sweet spiciness/ginger-ness comes hand in hand with a creamy-textured, mild malty foretaste... gradually settling down and giving way to a soothing palate of pilsner malts, bitter lemon-zests and a dryish hop bitterness lingering at the back; chewy spicy yeasts, lightly savoury undertones and tangy dryness compose of the main part of the aftertaste, pretty clean in the finish.
M&D: very clean on the mouthfeel and softly-carbonated, retaining a refreshing texture throughout the drink to match the equally mild flavour profile. This beer is skilfully balanced, without any specific element in the flavour to overwhelm the others, but consistently shows a clear, spicy and gingery theme that helps clean the palate prior to each next sip. Not an exciting and bouquet-like Belgian pale ale, but a solid one very difficult to resist after one sip. Recommended.

BB feb 2007. Nice presentation with white head that lasts well and pale golden beer that has some haze from big particles but still overall quiet clear. Nose shows lots of hops enhanced by koreander spicyness, some malts and alcohol and clean esterpallate( as it seems) making it very fresh and inviting to drink. Taste is full and litle but not oversweet, strongly alcohol without bothering and a dry and alcoholic bitter aftertaste. Good brew that feels fine in the mouth, warms and still comes fresh. Very well drinkable and enjoyable brew.
