Tasting stronger, spicier and fruitier than the common Belgian pale ale, the character of something stronger looms. De Musketiers are certainly getting the most from this recipe but at a more subdued strength.

Antigoon's yeast-centric scent revolves around the fruitiness of lemon, apple, pawpaw, apricot and honeydew with a balance of clove, white pepper and vinous white wine. Buried deep within its hazy gold appearance, the taste is sweet with honeysuckle, light sugar cookie and fresh dough.

As the flavors bloom on the tongue, its floral character quickly turns spicy. Delicate sweetness begins to favor a savory cashew and toasted elegance while its estery center becomes rich with stone fruit and marmalade. White wine adds a zing of acidity while the hops carry a grassy, hay-like finish with a firm spicy bite to contend with lingering sweetness.

Fuller than expected, the beer's premiere honey finish begins to resemble caramel and the beer's peppery spice brings out a stronger alcohol sensation than is actually there. Drinking much more aligned with golden strong ale, this pale ale is richer for a more luxurious culinary experience without giving up on drinkability. Lively carbonation highlights the spice as a taste of lemongrass chases a medium-length aftertaste.

Certainly not a traditional belg pale ale. This has nice suttle notes of sweetness with less sourness. On the edge of a barleywine without the figgyness. Cant think of a better bpa than this one.

On tap at Urban Heights in Bethesda, poured into an "Antigoon" tulip glass. Hazy, orange-golden color with big frothy head. Aroma is light banana, cloves, and a bit of grass. Taste is bittersweet, pretty heavy malt but nice. Mouthfeel is slightly more bitter than I expected, but overall it's a solid Belgian brew.

Had a funky smell and taste to it, but this is the first Belgian Pale Ale I've had from Belgium. Was still good, just... Different.

This beer tasting like drinking liquid malt extract from a can. It was thickwritten and sweeter than a typical belgian ale and combined with the spicy phenols did not have good results for me.

Bready and slight floral notes on the nose. Lots of biscuit up front. Pear, banana, bubbegum esters in the middle. Mildly sweet along with a citric 'zing' on the finish. 'Refuse the toll, pay the penance.' Wonderful Belgian pale.

Look: Golden / Tan quite murky, the good kind of murky. A perfect 2-3 fingers of head poured into a snifter. Lacing all over the glass.

Smell: Apple, pear, Belgian candy, caramel

Taste: A juicy apple/pear explosion. Mind-blowingly, fantastically juicy. Wow, wow, wow. One of the best beers I've ever tasted.

Feel: crisp, light body

Overall: One of the best beers ever made, period.

Lighter yellow and cloudy with 1/4 inch of head and some lacing.
Smell is fruity, sweet, yeasty, and funky.
Taste is citrus, yeast, minor hops, and some funk and spice.
Mouthful is medium with medium-high carbonation.
Overall a good beer that is worth a try.

Bought at my local drinks shop, which over the last few years has a great selection of beers on offer. A lot of Belgians as well.
And these Belgians have it well together.
This one is a slight orange golden beer, beige head, cloudy with a good amount of bubbles.
Smell of some grassy hops, clear citrus.
Taste is pretty full on bittersweet. Malty sweet but it doesn't skip on bitterness. Biscuit and forest berries.
Long lingering aftertaste.
Pretty good beer.

Gusher, and very old. A newer one may warrant a revisit for scoring.
