750ml bottle, poured into a Hill Farmstead oversized wine glass. Enjoyed on 1.16.16, reviewed from Tasting Journal.

The beer pours a nice, lightly hazy copper and gold color, ample bubbles rising to the top of the glass with a big white head, soapy and frothy with great retention and lace. The aroma is pleasant, bright and refreshing. It has loads of yeasty spice, banana, clove, peppercorn, cereal grains, and some grassy hops. The flavors are right in line with the nose, big spice forward yeast, clove, cereal grains, peppercorn, a bit of hop character with a soft vanilla and sweet alcohol at the finish. The mouthfeel is good, very coating, lively, crisp, full bodied with a creamy finish that offers a touch of sharpness.

Verdict: A very good Belgian Strong Pale Ale from Brouwerij Verstraete. Bright, refreshing but with nice complexities. A great beer to sip and enjoy on a nice afternoon.

Fruity grape smell. Tast of perfect balanced malts and a very nice hop tone. With a crispy finish. Unfortunatly no head

Hazy golden colour, with a two fingers head that doesn't hold, No lace. Smell of fruits, oranges, pears, spices (is that allspice?). Sweet palate, oily, medium body. Taste of fruits, pear, spices. I don't know why I think it would be great with some blue cheese.
