Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Colour and sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.
Flavour: Feels like the sound shot of alcohol is igniting the mouth. In reality the tongue and palate are warmed. The taste is characterized by its roundness. The aftertaste is strong, long-lasting and dry bitter.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a la trappe goblet.purchased in Woonsocket ri

A- pours a hazy golden body with a thick creamy white head that reduces slowly. Leaves thick lacing.

S- Belgian spices, raisins, banana, prunes, cloves, apple cider.

T- follows the nose with unripe bananas, spices, raisins, dark fruits, and a little bit of apples. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

M- medium body, med high carbonation. Easy drinker.

Outstanding beer. Quite a price tag but worthy try.

Old review from when I got it on tap:

Served on tap at mews tavern into an 8 oz snifter

A- I didn't pour this but the head was disappointing. Golden clear body with minimal lacing

S-tart, citrus, sweet honey

T-citrus, honey, wheat upfront. Nice hoppy aftertaste

One of my first Belgium strong pale ales, and I like it. A nice balanced brew

Pale golden straw color. Substantial carbonation. Huge head. Sediment flyin around like a snow globe.

Belgian funk in the aroma. Belgian yeast and spice.

Nice flavor. Crisp, bitter, refreshing. Simple. Spices. Hard to articulate. Nice. Definite Belgian flavor.

Light bodied overall. Very high carbonation.

I don't have a lot of experience with Belgians. This is definitely one of them. It's good.
