Clear amber color with a thin near-white head that's quick to dissipate.

Very "Belgian" aroma and taste -- caramalized sugar, a little overripe fig, some light cherry cough syrup, with dark bread preventing any of it from being too sweet.

Light to medium bodied with a slight slickness to the feel. Definitely sessionable, but not really my thing.

Not bad, on tap at Phillies game. BP special.
Aroma: old bay.
TASTE: very malty. Medium bitterness.

Great thirst quenching alternative to bud light. Go Phils."

Tasty enough Belgium pale ale while waiting for a flight home at Philly's airport. Crisp, spices, decent with food.

Had on tap at Chickies in the Philly airport. Served in a chilled pint glass.

L: Pours a deep amber with a finger of off-white head. Hard to tell clarity with the frosted glass.

S: Belgian yeast and peppercorns. Malts and esters.

T/F: Tasted like a Belgian ale... malts and yeasts with some peppercorns for spice. Creamy and smooth with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid beer that the bartender told me was brewed by Victory specifically for Chickie & Petes and was made with their famous crab fry spices. I didn't pick up on those... just some peppery notes. Still a nice Belgian ale and the frosted glass hindered rather than helped the flavor.

Light copper in color. The nose had slight pepper spice - like Old Bay. The flavor profile sort of tastes like a Belgian Ale but then again, not.

Not too sure what they were after here.

14 oz pour on-tap into a shaker pint.

Appearance
golden blonde with a short white head. Excellent clarity with light carbonation.

Nose
Caramel, pear, and potpourri.

Taste
Caramel and pear fronted by Belgian yeast flavors and notes of potpourri. Has a snap of pink peppercorn in the finish. No crab spice flavors are apparent.

Mouthfeel
Light bodied, smooth, clean, and refreshing.

Overall
Mellow, yeast-fronted, and easy drinking BPA.

had on tap at the Chickie and Pete's at PHL airport

a pale yellow color, soapy white head. aroma and taste is typical of a pale Belgian beer - fairly clean malt flavor, dominated by the Belgian yeast flavors - herbal and earthy. thin body, higher carbonation.
