Wacky name and pink elephant aside, this is a really tasty beer. It may be hard to get past what seems like gimmicky packaging, but the strong Belgian pale ale inside is well worth the effort. The rich golden colour is enticing, the thick white head inviting. And then you get a whiff of the spicy, fruity nose--that Belgian yeast working its magic--and, man, it's just amazingly complex and fragrant. Great carbonation makes the high level of sweetness tolerable and it has a fairly dry finish. Again, you get the complexity of the interplay of the malt, kandi sugar and yeast and all kinds of fruity flavours pop up--pear, pineapple, citrus peel.
