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.

Date of January 15th 2014 on the label.

Rusher and a gusher so watch out.
Pours a cloudy rusty colour with an avalanche of foam which takes some time to settle down.

A delightful nose of sweetish fruit greets my nose. Yeasty and malty as well. Caramel mixes nicely with the fruit.

Taste follows the smell with an addition of tart hints. Alcohol pretty noticable.

Light bodied sort of light carbonation.

Best before or bottled on, I dig this.

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.

Sympathetic drink, foam and white fluffy strong smell a bit yeasty aroma with a hint of fruit. They are easy to drink with pleasure. Pronounced fruity notes. Strong taste of alcohol. In conclusion it is worth "to go back to the forest to stand face to face with the Wolf 7" :)

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy light golden amber with a healthy, fine white three finger head with great retention and pillowy lacing. Aroma of candi malt, Belgian yeast, light citrus and banana and a hint of light stone fruit. Flavor is classic Belgian pale ale, lightly caramel malt, mixed light stone fruit, green apple and citrus, light clove. Finishes with light clove and neutral hop bitterness with pleasant residual light caramel and fruit. Medium bodied with peppery carbonation. A nicely made example of this style, spot on in flavor. Nothing sets this apart from the pack, but I'll be happy to get this again when I'm in the mood for a traditional Belgain pale, which I was this evening and this hit the spot.
