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.

330mL bottle into a tulip glass.

A - Honey/straw body with a large, white, rocky head with a medium-low retention. A lot of yeast in there making it very cloudy. 4/5

S - Very good smell of malt and yeast (honey, herbal, spices, caramelized appel). Biscuity. 4.5/5

T - A lot going on in there! Good malted sweetened with a lot of Belgian character coming from the yeast. A hint of acidic notes and a good carbonation to sustain the rest. 4.5/5

M - Medium to full bodied, this beer is super smooth. Level of bitterness is just right to balance the malt. 4.5/5

O/D - Excellent drinkability and very much to style, if you are into Belgians just seek it out! Great beer!
