This is supposedly a Belgian Pale (Golden) Ale but some of the spices used made it taste nothing like one. More specifically, the ginger-lemongrass combo was a bit overwhelming and off-putting. No head whatsoever and a murky brown color that was hardly inviting.

L: Amber and cloudy at the top, more light at the bottom. No head, no lace.
S: Licorice, banana, orange. Spicy.
F: Little foam, slight burn at the end. Pepper aftertaste.

T: First impression is medicinal. Almost like I'm drinking cough medicine or some sort of classic health tonic. It starts like a florist. Peppery fruit dominates. Maybe orange. No banana. The more I tried it I found myself struggling for other things to say. The pepper at the end actually leaves a slight burning in my mouth.

O: One of the bottles was damaged slightly at the top. I opened it and didn't hear a whoosh and saw the dinged glass. It was a drain pour. In a way, maybe I should be glad there's one less of these I didn't consume. From the bottle, it's drinkable. From the glass, not so much.
