I am drinking the pint size canned version of this Belgian craft beer classic. NO DATE on the can. Wow this beer is amazing tasting. The 8.5% abv is completely hidden. In addition to, I like the blue color of the can with pink elephant, I think it is cute looking. This beer leaves a marvelous looking head & foam lacing as I take sips of it. I paid $5.00 for this pint size can, so that is quite expensive. The price should be lowered a little bit in my opinion. I don't see too much floaties, consequently then this leads me to believe that my can is not too old. A great way to describe this beer is that it taste like your average tasting German Hefeweizen with a little bit of a sourness added to it & a tiny bit of earthy refreshing mint. The only other Belgian strong pale ale that I have had was Duvel which I think is slight better than this beer not by much maybe a point or two better. I highly recommend that you try some of this beer if you can get this in your area. Cheers! A- (90-94) score range

L: SRM 5, with minimal white head. Quite clear. No carbonation bubbles visible rising up the beer (well, technically like one or two sometimes)
S: smells of bubblegum (ish) and fruit, with hints of belgian yeast
T: same bubblegum-ish flavors along with red fruits, and some light Belgian yeast and spice. Not as tasty as I remember when I had this in the past.
F: slightly less than medium body. low quantity of slightly-below-average intensity carbonation.
O: a decent beer

L- Small head, slight lacing around the glass. Pretty surprised by the head, honestly. Golden straw gold with a slight amberish color
S- Huge phenol notes with a following spicy aroma. This beer is extremely yeasty on the nose. Very real and honest on the nose.
T- Spice (coriander), yeasty bitterness, bready, slight apple and pear, slight bitterness. This is held together by a Very subdued flavor all together.
F- Medium bodied beer. Honestly a bit chewy.
O- Very good beer. Traditional to the Belgian standard, tasty, and heavy. Extremely rudimentary, it seems... In a good way.
