This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was centered around a decent hazy golden yellow to somewhat orange/light brown color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute and left some light lacing sticking nicely around the sides of the glass. The smell had some nice light Belgian spices up front and let in a slight sour lemon. The taste took the lemon and the Belgian spices to town and let in a decent citrus flavoring. It left a really dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. The carbonation was sharp but nothing overbearing. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Belgian pale ale worthy of having again.

Dark brown color with a little bit of a red tint. Dark fruity flavors in the smell and taste. Medium bodied but overall pretty good. Middle of the road type of beer, good but nothing spectacular.
