Walking through Whole Foods today, some reps were giving tastings of this beer... one sip and yes... I'll take a couple.

I'm really starting to love Belgian pales.. and this is a great one.. I'll be back again and again...

drinking one right now while watching the Oscars and eating pizza.... it goes well with three meat digiorno.

This one is a semi-dark golden color, slightly hazy and is topped off with a thick white and airy head accompanied by some really awesome lacing. The aroma is light and fresh, hints of citrus fruits and hops are well represented here, and grapes, apples, mild pears and even grapefruit can be detected when stirred. The flavor is an exact replica of the aroma, mildly sweet with a bitter overall, the first things you taste is the apple followed by some pears and berries. The aftertaste is just as good, slightly dry and sweet overall and the alcohol is barely detectable. The mouth feel is medium-to-full bodied. This is a pretty good beer to relax to…

I have had this in the bottle (one year old) and on tap at the Publican. Fruit, spice, Belgian yeast, faint banana, and malt on the nose from the bottle. The draft version has more peach, less banana and malt. It pours hazy gold under a 2” finely bubbled foam cap that slowly dissipates leaving intricate Belgian lace. On tap the palate starts very fruity – peach and tropical fruit with an underlying layer of malt and a bitter hop finish. The bottled version has more malt and less fruit and some faint cola notes. Both tap and bottle are surprisingly light for all that is going on and the carbonation is soft but above average. It is better fresh.

10/12/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. This is as smooth as it gets. Borders on buttery. Just a hint of spices. So light they're hard to distinguish. I could drink this all day but for the 7.4 ABV. Beware the Wolf!

Wolf is a beer from the lupus brewery, who brews out of Aarschot at this moment.

A: Almost clear golden with a big, slightly rocky head. Some pieces of the head stick to the glass. The head retention is good, with a nice residual going on.

S: The smell is a major bonus point for this beer. The smell is sweet malty with large hints of vanilla.

T: The smell does not decieve, the same sweetness comes back but less pronounced. After the initial taste a hint of nectarines (or other stone fruits) is detecable. After this a mild bitter aftertaste comes into play. The taste seems to be well balanced.

M: Medium carbonation gives it a very nice mouthfeel.

D: Another big bonus for this beer. It has not too much abv and conceals it very well. I could easily drink a few of these on a good summer day.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/13/2013. Pours slight hazy deep golden color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Incredible appearance. Aromas of big lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, bread, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, apricot, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, candi sugar, herbal, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a really excellence Belgian pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Looks like a splendid pale, but my enthusiasm fades as does the foam.
Smells offer up some very nice fruits; probably some pear/peach sweet, but mostly yeasty like bananas.
Taste offers up some spicy variety; but never pushes the yeast and malt from their duet on center stage.
Feel finishes a bit sweeter than I prefer for moderate, garlicky foods.
Overall, an expertly made blonde that I hope to have again.
What rock have I been under that this is my first from Wolf ?

7/21/17 Had again with my favorite ratatouille; picnicking on the Great Lawn of Millennium Park listening to the Grant Park Orchestra with Chicago's skyline as summer night's frame. The ale was great, but the scene stole the show.
