I just picked this bottle up in Belgium. This is the base beer from Crianza which is brewed by the same brewer.

The beer poured a light golden color with a nice rush of bubbles to the top that last for awhile and it complimented by a relatively small white head but fluffy. The nose is full of notes of lemon, yeast and a citrus tone as well. The taste is bit hoppier than I expected but pleasant. There is also a lemony, earthy taste that rounds this beer out well. Although light in color and abv, the body is medium and provides for a very decent beer. If you like this beer, try to get a hold of the Crianza which is excellent.

First had: on tap at Monk's, Philly, PA

Poured golden with a white head, some lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and a bit of sugar. Taste of citrus, floral qualities, light spice and breadiness. Pleasant, light-medium mouthfeel with a bit of carbonation that didn't seem out of place. Very drinkable.

It pours dark amber with a big head. Hops are fairly intense but they are accompanied by sweet malty notes. Floral and with hints of yeast. A very enjoyable Belgian pale!

Amber in color. Beautiful fluffy white head, long standing in the glass.
Freshness in the smell: hop, some tea leaves. Very fresh. Some notes of an english bitter, here and there. Orange marmelade.
In the taste a very intense hop, good. Backbone malt to balance, but the master is the hop.
Average to light in body.
A very strong bitter start in the aftertaste.
Clean.
Very good beer.

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.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber with a massive four finger white head with good retention and thick sheets of lacing. Aroma of mild bready malt, clove, light lemon citrus, mixed light fruit, spicy. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit rind, apple and pear juice, clove and light grassy hops. Finishes semi-dry with a mildly funky yeast that leans towards a saison style, interesting lingering grassy hop and clove bitterness. Medium bodied. A pleasant and not typical Belgian pale. Finishes drier and hoppier than its brethren. The flavors are somewhat subtle, but nicely complex. Interesting finish that I looked forward to in each sip.

Appearance- Nice golden color with a thick white head. Was a bit cloudy. Nice lacing.

Smell- Fruity with a nice smell of hops.

Taste- Had a fruity taste. Maybe hint of apples with some lemon zest perhaps.

Mouthfeel- Dry feel with bitter aftertaste. Carbonation was fairly high.

Drinkability- This beer was pretty good. A nice beer to bring to fancy parties instead of wine.
