Broke my rule and included a Dutch beer into my beer advocate review list.

This one is all over the place, look and smell are nondescript, a mild hazy appearance coupled with a dishwater head that is gone faster than the Bandit with Buford T Justice in hot pursuit!

Smell gives very little away, and I am struggling for any meaningful aroma.

The taste and feel however are definitely this brews strong points, a nice fresh fruity feel which is smooth and also leaves a little fizz lingering in the mouth.

Overall I think this is a pretty decent beverage, easy to drink which is the main thing!

Doing this with the help of my memory.

Poured into a tulip glass.

A: The body is yellow-ish having a slightly minimal haziness resulting in having an almost crystalline body. The head is white, one finger thick, having no retention and no lacing.
S: The aroma is totally what you'd expect from a Belgian Pale Ale. There's maltiness, there's belgian yeast, no alcohol, very soft aromas and juicy tones.
T: The taste is a bit disappointing having less prominent malts and no fruitiness associated.
M: The mouthfeel is the worst part of this beer reaching almost the fact that this beer behaves like it's cheap. Body medium low to low. Carbonation harsh and high. Not a fan.
O: I've had better BPAs but I needed to try this one in order to end my journey on La Trappe. Still missing Tripel though.

From bottle, pours a hazey blonde colour with a small white head that disapates to a thin ring.
Aroma banana, yeast, spice.
Taste pretty much follows the nose, yeasty, bready, banana, spices.
