4.43/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

poured into a 16 oz. pint glass.

Pour is a little thin. slowly building small white head which has minimum retention and no legs. clear yellow.

Crisp and clean esters with fresh background grass. very inviting.

Taste is great. Very well balanced, a rich burst of banana cleaned up by smooth fresh hops. Bready malt holding everything together.

Very rich flavors that are clean on the palate. The amount of flavor is not relative to the amount stuck in your mouth, good to have everything so powerful without it lingering.

Overall, i highly recommend this beer. If you have a buddy who needs to be convinced that there is more to Belgians than just the yeast this would be a good one to show them.

this is really tasty stuff, sort of in that belgian pale/saison hybrid range, but downright delicious, and i have now been really impressed with both beers i have had from these guys so far! its pale and lightly hazy, earthy wheaty looking with a high rising white head on it and a lot of carbonation from the tap. aroma is softly estery, floral, things like lemongrass and elderflower and white pepper come out, golden honey and dried apple, with a simple malt base underneath and a little bit more hops than i anticipated. great balance of flavor, classically belgian and kind of rustic on the yeast, not as high tone estery as it smells, earthy and refined, with some hop bitterness, an herbaceous character from the hops too, and some light non wild funk. its like spring and fall put together in the same glass. i love the yeast here, i love the level of refinement, and i am now really stoked on this brewery. an old world belgian beer that has been wonderfully executed. i could drink a dozen of these no problem!

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A two finger head that is creamy with poor retention. The head left a little lacing on the glass. The color of the beer is a golden color with good clarity. The beer has a decent amount of carbonation visible.

N: Toasted malt, floral, perfume, spicy banana phenols. cloves, crackers, yeast, and some earthy notes.

T: toasted malt, floral perfume, phenols, cracker, yeast, spicy cloves, and a touch of earthiness.

M: Creamy, some carbonation, medium body, and astringent.

O: this is just slightly above average Belgian Pale Ale, I was expecting a stronger hops present and more up front rich flavors. I think the flavor a touch muted.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 3

Pour is a clear golden hue, nice foamy big bubbled head that settles quickly to a ring. Smell is reminiscent of Save the Worlds Witbier. Wheat, hints of bananas and cloves. Buttery biscuit like maltiness. Taste has the same wheat profile as well, with a very subtle bitter kick mixed with a dry bready malt. Mouthfeel is very very thin, moderately carbonated. Very one dimensional pale ale. But an overall easy drinker, but nothing I would try again.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Slightly cloudy golden color with thin head and no lacing. Floral and herbal smell and taste. Spicy and a little lemon. An enjoyable beer!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Poured gently at 47°F from a 22oz bottle (no date) into a tulip. Consumed on 16Feb16.
LOOK: Pours with a half fingers worth of white foam that shrivels into a line within 30 seconds. Pale yellow in color with an extreme amount of cloudiness. Rising bubbles are both large and medium in size and very subtle in quantity. There is also a very subtle amount of large bubbles that are just sitting on the bottom of the glass. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Mild aromas of bananas, cloves, and lemon zest and backed by subtle white grape, pear, sour green apple, and biscuit aromas.
TASTE: Mild banana and clove flavors first strike the palate and are immediately followed and balanced by subtle floral hop flavors (weren't detected in the smell). Mild pear and white grape flavors enter next along with subtle sour green apple as banana and clove flavors grow slightly stronger. Mild lemon zest and subtle biscuit flavors are the last to make their debut onto the taste buds as all previous flavors persist, except for banana and clove, which continue to grow stronger.
FEEL: Light-bodied and highly carbonated. Goes down rough due to the carbonation. Finishes with a strong dryness.
NOTE: A good beer whose major downfall was it's poor mouthfeel. Thin and carbonated has never been something that I have enjoyed. As far as taste goes, this was great. The clove flavors could of been toned down just a tad bit.

Fast becoming one of my favorite beers(if I can find it). I first had this on tap and brought it home in a growler. I really enjoyed it. I then picked up two bombers and just love it. A honey, biscuity, malty ale. A lighter easy drinking ale with some real good body to it. A very floral nose and a chewy body. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite ales.

A wonderfully complex beer that's not overboard on alcohol. I mean, for a patersbier it is. This abbey would have to be a somewhat questionable one if everyone was drinking this for sustenance all day.

Anyway, nice biscuity malt flavor that somehow blends perfectly with a mild tartness, very mild sweetness and an all-around crisp, dry feel without a hop-forward flavor. This stuff rocks.

[Forced notes due to an outlier rating.]

Dry and starchy, with an ABV high enough to take it way out of the conventions of the traditional style. The yeast guidance is nice, but its parching dry unrefreshing feel is criminal in a proper patersbier or enkel. A swing and a miss, but still an average beer worth trying.

High C (2.95)
