Another bottle picked up back east. Lighter bodied belgian ale, flowery, herbal, bordering on saison. Some lemon citrus notes in the taste, some what dry and chalky finish.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass; B335 0245 bottle code. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy deep golden color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and hebral/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, coriander, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, 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 creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian pale ale. All around good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

LOOK: Corked and caged bottle opens with an audible pop. Pours a slightly hazed gold with a large soapy head that laces the glass well. Has a bit of a chill haze on it.

SMELL: Sweet yeasty aroma with a light but pungent floral hop.

TASTE: In the taste, white grape, clean malt, and a slightly musty yeast note. Hops are mild but balancing hop character. Clean, yeasty and a nice table beer.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a champagne like character.

OVERALL: A lovely Belgian style ale brewed in Italy. Above average for the Belgian pale ale style.

Date tasted: June 27, 2013... Glassware: Duvel oversized tulip... Occasion: goodbye school year, hello, summer--and goodbye NBA draft anxiety,, hello Anthony Bennett?!... Appearance: thick, falling-from-the-club-type foam head that sits unevenly on a pale, peach body of slow-paced carbonation--worthy of repeated viewing... Aroma: sports a softened mux of coriander and light hops--some bright banana and sugar tease, but not full-nostriled... Palate: rather smooth with wrinkles of aftertaste; slight carbonation gives it a champagne mouthfeel but much drier... Taste: sweetish? honeyesque? a delicate-tasting orange profile that doesn't maintain its strength... Overall: From the start, gives one high hopes,, and on this day, when Cleveland moves forward, I'd like to think this beer is a good deal like Bennett--capable of great things despite its inability to truly be a #1 draft....
