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.

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.

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!

a large format compared to the picture here, 750 ml cork and cage. deep blonde beer mostly clear with a tough to manage white foam head that rises high even on the gentlest of pours. the nose is great on this, fruity esters from the belgian yeast, soft pale malt, and a remarkable amount of banana, a la hefe yeast, which seems odd in a belgian, but works amazingly well here. in the flavor too there is plenty of the banana, especially on the finish, which relaxes an otherwise spicy yeast profile. candy sugar is subtle, but this finishes a little sweet like a tripel, although i would not qualify it as one based on flavor. the malt is really light, lets the yeast do the lifting in terms of flavor, and the feel is exceptional. delicate on the palate with a light body and a potent carbonation with just enough of a long finish of orchard fruits before drying up. expertly made belgian blonde here, drinkable as they come over 7% abv, and fairly priced at roughly 10 bucks per bottle.
