Poured into a snifter.

A: Cloudy golden-wheat color with big particles and a one-finger, white head that left a nice film. Okay lacing.

S: Wheat and tropical fruit aromas. Belgian yeast.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Spice and Belgian yeast. Wheat character. Nice finish. 9% ABV is completely hidden in the flavor of this ale.

M: Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Crisp and refreshing. Slightly warm.

O: This is fantastic. Looks phenomenal in my glass, and the nose is unparalleled. Great taste and mouthfeel, and I would not have guessed 9% ABV. One of my new favorites.

Pours a hazy pleasant color, a bit darker then other belgian pale ales I have tried.

Smell is pleasant, but subtle.

Taste is outstanding. I didn't realize it was a pale ale at first, bit bit stronger taste then I am used to from this style (A good thing).

Mouthfeel was fantastic, best part. Classic belgian style, with large frothy head, good carbonation.

Awesome beer everyone should try at least once.

Looks the type. A golden orange, almost apricot color with a hint of haze. The head is a bright, brilliant white series of tiny, tiny bubbles. The head doesn't last terribly long, but it's vibrant while it does.

Has the fruity, tangy yeast smell like the Belgians are known for. A bit of grape and Granny Smith apple, very fruitcake like. You can smell the carbonation.

The follows the same steps as the smell. Granny Smith apples, a hint of honey, slight notes of bread/yeast. As it warms, vanilla shines through.

Crazy complexity. Just about every sensation in your mouth you can think of. Sweet, spicy, tart, tangy, dry, crisp, cleansing, with only hints of bitter and the slightest note of heat from the alcohol. Light-bodied.

Overall, this is about as good a beer as I can remember. It's amazing it's not a Belgian brewery because they've got this beer down pat. No flaws. Really, really a must have.
