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

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.

Pours a rich copper color with a white head and a bit of lace. Aroma of grains and flowery hops. In the taste, grains and floral hops, a bit of estery yeast. Has a raw grainy taste with light malts. Medium bodied, well carbonated feel. Overall, this was a good beer. According to the staff this is a relabeled Abbey 5.

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.
