Long time no see. Amber color with a thick four fingers head with eternal retention and leaving a wall of laces.
Predominant aroma with notes of candied orange peel, sweet pears and spices. Hints of biscuit and floral hops.
Flavor with notes of oranges and pears, biscuit malt, mild herbal and floral hops, clear peppery phenols, a hint of berries and just a bit of toasted malt. Dry aftertaste with a low to medium bitterness.
Light towards medium body with appropriate carbonation.
Pleasant and easy to drink Belgian Pale Ale with rounded and assertive spicy and citrusy notes. I do remember the first time I had this a few years ago near its home country, I had felt the peppery phenols much more intense, but I was still incipient on beer types. Not super complex and maybe it should stay that way; it is surprisingly quaffable despite its peppery notes.

From the bottle, it pours a moderately light amber with a vigorous head, that dissipates to a nice film. Lacing as you enjoy the beer. A steady stream of bubbles comes up from the bottom. Pleasant and easy to drink. Yum!

Poured into tulip. Pours hazy amber-orange with excellent off-white head, nice retention, laces. Smell - yeasts, lemon, spices, pepper. Taste - yeasty,. Light body, soft carbonation, high drinkability. Pros - appearance, smell.
Contras - taste is too simple.
