Part of the spring variety pack, this Belgian pale ale pours an amber color with a medium to thin white head that quickly dissipates. The smell is malty and slightly citrusy, possibly of orange or lime. It has a strong, almost overwhelming, malt presence with flavors of caramel, bread, and toasted oats. The hops are milder. The finish is very crisp and slightly dry. Not a bad beer, but not really too interesting either. I’m not really sure what makes this a Belgian pale ale and not just a regular pale ale. It wouldn’t make a bad session beer.

Golden color, a tiny amount of haze to it, pillowy white head, 3/5". Didn't notice anything that constituted a belgian aroma or yeast going on here.

Taste was light and provided some nice levity to the palate. Carbonation was up there. Real mild toasted malt stuffing. Mild grassy notes.
