33cl Bottle: BBD 12th Aug 15, poured into a Duvel glass @ home on 5th Dec 13.

Almost clear golden colour with a good head, could almost have been a Duvel in the glass.

The aroma however told you it wasn't a Duvel: this had a grainy and mild citrus note in the smell, along with some yeast esters.

The taste was also a mixture of flavours, again grainy, citrusy and yeasty: crisp, sharp and leaning towards tart with a dry bitter finish.

Nice brew.

A: Pours slightly hazy pale golden with a tall, thick but still light and crisp, crystal white head. Dissipation is slow and leaves pretty nice lacings.

S: A bit sour, yeasty and spicey. Crisp malt and some strong citirc, hoppy notes. Some faint stable and leather. Somewhat sweet.

T: Sour yeastyness, peppery spiceyness and white bread. Lemonjuice and lemonsezt.

M: Aftertase is both sour and bitter, rather long. Body is medium to full, while carbonation is quite strong but still rather well balanced.

O: An interesting Belgian ale with nice sour notes from yeast.

Poured into a St. Feuillien goblet. Pours a cloudy caramel amber with a nice three finger white head that slowly dissipated to a thick cap and tons of lacing. Aroma of bready malt, light, slightly sour fruit, coriander and citrus. Flavor of caramel malt, coriander, citrus, pear and apple juice, moderately dry. Finishes dry with peppery spice and light grasst hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with excellent carbonation. A very nice Belgian pale with a pleasant flavor progression and balance. It is a nice semi-dry variation on typically sweeter Belgian pales. Classic.

Served from a 33 cl bottle, bought in France, into a wine glass.

A - Extremely pale straw color and crystal clear. The head is white; initially fluffy and thick, but fades to a thin layer and some lacing. Tiny strings of carbonation continually rise. Very attractive.

S - Aroma of marshmallows, bubblegum and sweet bread mix with lemon, black pepper and grassy hops. Complex but inviting.

T - In contrast with aromas, the taste emphasizes cracked black pepper, which combines with the moderate hop bitterness to seem hot and spicy. The flavor of the hops doesn't stand out, but there is a bit of green grass and lemon juice late in the palate. The malt is in the background, as are most yeast notes except for pepper. Complex and changing with every swallow.

M - Spritzy carbonation; moderate to thin body. Some alcohol presence. As mentioned above, hops and pepper-like spiciness give the beer a burning sensation.

O - An outstandingly complex blond; lots going on in aroma and flavor. I think it could use a bit more malt presence, but that is personal opinion and there are certainly no flaws in this beer.
