A-cloudy yellow gold with a thick off white head

S-Awesome spicy pale Belgian grains. Smells quite raw. Slightly faint.

T-comes in with an awesome raw taste of pale spicy grains. This is actually quite awesome! Theres a good matching after-taste.

M-high creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-this is awesome! It tastes just about perfect for the style. It's also extremely drinkable! I love this!

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.

Got this beer in Total Wine Jacksonville. It's now bottled and retailed.

appearance: lovely cloudy and golden glow with nice white very fluffy head rentention

smell: very high belgian yeast aromas, spicy, citrus

taste: wow, like it smells exactly. the spiciest belgian Ive had without the addition of spices. Nice. heavy clove, lavender mixed with citrus, and tropical fruits, best belgian pale Ive had.

mouthfeel: thin bodied, loaded carbonation

drinkability: a rare treat and amazing beer

Pours a somewhat hazy dark golden with a thick and rather persistent off-white head that leaves some decent lacing. The bottle I got foamed like crazy, so open with caution! Strong aroma is fruity, mainly apple with hints of pear and orange, with a yeasty undertone and just a hint of hops. Rich, mouth-filling flavor is malty and fruity, a little sweet, with hints of butterscotch, banana and caramel as well as a touch of hops - it seems as though each sip is a little different. Dee-lishus! Texture is creamy and fizzy, leaving behind a tingly, fruity, slightly sweet, slightly hoppy and edgy finish. Heartily recommended!

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.

Picked up a corked and caged 750ml bottle in a trade with Dawson's Liquor in Severna Park, MD and poured it into a Tripel Karmeliet branded tulip - thanks fellas!

A: The bottle label itself is simply amazing - with cool artwork that depicts the story of the mythical Roman soldier Silvius Brabo; an underdog hero who cut the hand off of the cruel giant Druon Antigoon. He then tossed it in the river as Antigoon had done to many undeserving victims in his time. A bit of David and Goliath for the Belgians. There's a fountain/statue in Antwerp of Silvius dramatically throwing the hand (with water squirting out of it in place of blood) of Antigoon's. Pretty F'n cool!

Now for the beer's actual appearance - pours a hazy pale/strawlike hue with a thick white head that sticks around for a while, leaving massive amounts of lacing in its tracks.

S: Good amount of malt and some trippy funk from the yeast, saw dust and fermented apricot, some earthy hop and fresh biscuit finish.

T: The nose suggests a lot of what will come in the taste - nice bready/biscuit flavor, a bit of mellow funk from the yeast, sweet and malty balance, with earthy hop and a hint of fennel that round the flavor out nicely.

M: The mouthfeel is absolutely perfect - medium bodied with just the right amount of carbonation for the style, a clean dry finish with a bit of lingering bitterness from the hop. Easy drinker - had to really use some self control when it came to leaving the second bottle for another night.

Overall a "cream of the crop" for the style. One of the better Belgian Pales i've ever had. Can't wait to crack into that other bottle!
