look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A- pours a hazy light copper/gold with a 2-3 finger white foamy head. Slowly fades and leaves a ring and blotches on the glass.

S- Aromas of grass and honey sweetness, citrus, biscuit and light spices.

T- Sweet honey biscuit and mild caramel, minimal fruit and banana with spice. Very light on hops.

M- Well carbonated with light mouth feel. Refreshing to quaff.

O- A nice twist on a Belgian Pale Ale that is refreshing to drink.

cold rainy (with snow to come) April night. Seems a proper time for a big enough beer to handle the chill.
Nice mixed fruit in the noise with balance of pale malt graininess. Touch of yeasty spice. Complex and nice.
Medium sized amply dense white head. Semi-cloudy gold.
Again with a nice fruitiness. A softer dryness for style. Mild yeast flavor with subdued phenols and minimal spice. Mild pale grains. Some drinks bring out a clear hop flavor. A pleasing sweetness runs through the drink very nicely.
Soft feel enhanced by the carbonation.
A good drinking pale ale/tripel. Americanized somewhat, but enjoyable. Let's have one more.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A golden clarity in a shaker pint, with a small fluffy head that clears quickly.

Mild honey and bread in the aroma, with banana and pear.

It's a sharp-tinged sweetness in the mouth, faintly of honey and banana taffy, with a mild bitterness that appears in the back of the mouth. The high carbonation keeps it refreshing.

Not greatness, but common-enough distribution to be a go-to beer when one is faced with less-than-stellar tap menus.

Update 12/10/14
I think I have to downgrade my rating (4.28, 8/2013) on this. I don't remember this tasting so much like a tripel, and I mostly don't like tripels.

Appearance: Same clarity as Blue Moon, but it's a shade or two lighter in color. Very little foam, but a bit of lacing.

Smell: Sweet citrus and malt. Almost a bit of a fruit gummy flavor as well in the background.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Hints of orange with some banana and clove present. This also has the yeasty character of a good Belgian, but the mouthfeel doesn't quite hold up despite how clean it is. There is quite clearly some alcoholic bite present.

Overall Drinkability: Not quite Blue Moon on steroids. More like Blue Moon on vitamin B12. Still it's an improvement over the former.

A - Clear, bubbly copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled fruity and yeasty.

T - It tasted fruity with sweet caramel and a yeasty/spicy bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a good Belgian Ale. Nice one from Furthermore.
