600th review!

What a beer. This one is pretty good, near perfection. Can we say session Belgian beer?!

The beer color is pale yellow, cloudy. Nice white thin head on top of it. Its fabulous. The aroma is hoppy with a very timid presence of Belgian yeast. Fuit is lemon, citrus, tropical fruit. Awesome. The taste is similar to the aroma. Citrus. Some dryness in the finish with a very well balanced bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium body with some effervescence. Bubbly! :)

Overall a pretty good beer. For me, this is one of the best. Perfect! Cheers!

Poured a golden color with a 1 finger head into an Orval Trappist glass.

A very strong lemon-citrus aroma.

The mouth feel is quite tart and fits the character of the beer's aroma, taste and finish.

The taste is citrus- although not as strong as the aroma, and not lemony.

The finish is quite good- tangy and mildly bitter.

Overall: a well-done Belgian Pale ale- very drinkable.

Golden color with white head. Nice belgian yeast esters in the aroma. Taste goes along with a very balanced malt/hop profile. Body is quite smooth for the style but well carbonated. Nice one.
