Small format bottle into a snifter appears a hazy holden yellow with white cap.

The aroma is sulfur dominated with slight herbal hop appeal.

The taste is dry and grassy with slight fruity yeast accent. Some cereal grains and mineral/carbonic aftertaste.

This is light in body and effervescent with carbonation. A decent belgian pale ale but not in my wheelhouse of things i enjoy. I dont need to have this one again.

I just had this somewhat hard to get beer (not common in Texas) and I thought it was pretty good. The Belgians make the best Belgian Ales.

Look: cloudy yellow hue with a thick bubbly white head

Aroma: citrus, yeast, some pine

Taste: A little bit sweet, yeast, grapefruit and grapefruit rind, and some pine resin.

Feel: light and crisp, significant carbonation

Cloudy, smells of honey mixed with hints of marijuana, yes you read that correct. Lots of carbonation. Flavor lasts quite a while. Great Belgian beer. Definitely a beer to try.

Cloudy yellow with a massive pure white head that leaves heavy rings of lacing.

Pine boughs, juniper berries and sugar in the nose. Watery, piney bitterness in the taste. Light bodied with just enough carbonation.

The perfect session IPA? IDK. It certainly does the trick in Brussels.
