A: medium gold-colored beer with a fluffy white head; shimmering film of fines bubbles and a slightly fuller collar persisted

S: Belgian yeasts and orchard fruits; slight background medicinal notes

T: a full and fruity beer, moderated by subtle, pale bitters and a brighter, yeasty overtone. Interesting sours (like lemony-ness) and earthier fruit and vegetal notes - a complex beer with a nice flavor profile

M: perfectly-weighted, well-carbonated; aftertaste was a little medicinal cough-droppy

O: this is a well-crafted and good-tasting beer, similar to a Duvel - but that may be its limiting factor: because it is so similar to a Duvel, without being superior (and probably being slightly less-available), it isn't probably a "return to" beer for me. All fans of Belgian pales need to give it a try, though, because it is a good example of the style.
