look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Quite hazy golden yellow with a modest, somewhat coarse white head, which soon fades to a thin layer of foam. The lacing is patchy and scattered.

Aroma: Complex aroma of light fruit, particularly apples and pears, as well as grassy hops and cloves.

Taste: The opening is slightly tart, with wheat malt, followed by light fruits, pears, apples, and also citrus flavors. AS the taste progresses, some clove spiciness appears. Grassy hop notes are present late in the taste, and there is some later medicinal bitterness as well. A mild sourness lingers on at the end of the taste.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, a touch thin, but pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Very drinkable with more character than the average Belgian Pale Ale.

Presentation: Packaged in an eleven-point-two ounce Euro-style brown glass bottle sealed with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a pale yellow body with a slow sea of bubbles supporting a snow white lumpy head.

S- The soft esters of yeast mix with dandelion flowers, chamomile flowers and a soft green hop hint in the finish.

T- The soft dry fruity esters and dried flowers finish with a lemony hop note and a slight mineral water taste in the finish. There is a dry pungent note that lingers with a faint field corn hint.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz that finishes softly.

O- This beer is bright and slightly dry with some nice subtle depth but it takes on a bit of a soapy quality as it opens which is a bit off putting.

Rare color for a beer, light gold milky. Lots of thick snow white head with good retention and leaving laces.
Nice aroma with predominant Belgian yeast.
Slightly different flavor from what I have tasted so far in beers, though not awkward. Very pleasant and refreshing. Quite citric but not aggressive, hints of lactose, cloves, lemon, bananas, oranges and green apples. All that but very subtle, yeast predominates here as well. Dry aftertaste and a bit acid finishing.
Light body with good carbonation, almost effervescent in touch with your tongue.
Although it is a mild beer (relatively to the Dubbels and Tripels) it has its own personality. Drinkability at its best, I could drink this all day. Complex but not bold. Higly recomendable.

Poured 33cl bottle w freshness date into wine glass. Showed a high effervescence, retention was pretty good though not amazing, left a really nice lace. Colour is a light straw gold.

Nose has some clay-ey yeast up front. Prominent maltiness and hops. Quite crisp with a solid mineral edge to it.

Taste has a quite mineral start, then crisp green apples, with a bit of tastness, plenty of yeast which dominates. Malt provides a good balance, and all together this shows quite a good bit of flavour Toward the end some drying bitterness and it finishes crisp and again mineral esters.

Mouthfeel has a high carbonation, moderate bite and body. Quite good, bit of sharpness, but refreshing, leaves a tingling sensation.

Enjoyable ale, it has a couple rough spots, but it has a really good complexity and flavour. Carbonation could be toned down, but flavour of the beer was quite impressive, try it out.

Pour is a straw like yellow with a slight haze and tight white head. Nose is assertive lemon, light yeast, touch of banana and sweet phenol. A little watery compared to the nose, sweet lemon, zesty spice but faint. The finish lingers with lemon banana and a hint of a lacto aspect. Light body and creamy on the palate with low carbonation. More balanced and deep than the triple.
