3.51/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours clear light golden, with a huge fluffy white head, and a nice effervescence. Some random lacing a great retention.

Smells of malt and yeast, almost clean, but not much going on.

Tastes of crisp malts, light, tails off to a very light peppery finish.

Texture is bubbly, and almost fizzy. Though easy to drink, it's not awesome.

An ok beer, a bit boring and thin.

*As I slowly make my way towards connoisseurship I find myself constantly having to update my old reviews.

APPEARANCE: Amber, almost clear with strings of fine bubbles. Beautiful head already clinging to the glass but not as foamy as the Leffe Brune.

SMELL: Very nice. Bread, banana and lots of pepper.

TASTE: Nice and bitter. Peppery. Acidic berries flavour.

OVERALL: I like it a lot. It might not be the best Belgian pale ale but I feel it often gets a bad rap.
