On tap at brewpub:
Pours a quite light golden and very clear. For a 8+% beer, the head is a resilient cover to the body, and provides sheets of lacing.

Nose is a nice neutral pale ale base with a candi-sweet, slightly alcoholic accent. There is a hidden grass and Belgian yeast ester note that remind me of the style.

Taste doesn't disappoint though the feel has a bit of burn that could be a little more under control. Sugary sweet and yeasty floral; a little soaked pear note along with a nod to bananas foster.

More of a dessert sipper, for sure, but a decently well done one.
