Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium bronze amber with a thin patchy white head that leaves a thick ring around the glass and light patchy lacing. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, light overripe stone fruit, Belgian yeast, a hint of toffee. Flavor is a lighter version of the aroma with a similar mixture of flavors, but rather attenuated. Light to medium bodied. Hits all the notes for a Belgian pale, but the flavor is light and rather bland with the semi-sweet malt dominating the fruit flavors despite being light itself. I'll hope this is an old bottle, else this is one of the more underwhelming Belgians I've tasted. Satisfactory, with no off-notes, but nothing I'd ever try again.

Started enjoying this beer while earning my MBA at the Cloverleaf Tavern in Caldwell, NJ. This is a nice light and refreshing beer with plenty of flavor but not overpowering
