look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A-Corked 750ml bottle was a bitch to open. Pours a rich golden color. Hard pour births a large, bubbly, fluffy head. Head retains very well and leaves a lot of lace rings.

S-Smells is noticeable but not very intense. Clove, banana, yeast, spice combo. Nice citrus peel aroma too. Just a standard, Belgian aroma that is altogether pretty nice.

T-The flavor is a notch below the aroma. Coppery/metallic twang hits the palate and drops the score of the taste. The components found in the nose are there on the tongue. Yet, they do not fuse as well as they do as in the aroma.

M-Feel is slick. Carbonation is lively but the slick feel kind of takes away from the nice carbonation. Lightly syrupy.

O/D-At $4 for a 750ml, this is a bargain. It is a decent beginner's Belgian Pale Ale. I am surprised it took me so long to try it. All in all, its not bad, but if I was going to get someone to try their first Belgian, Duvel would take the cake here. I do enjoy the 750ml though.
