The aroma is an explosion of stone fruit and tropical fruit that is tempered by a bready, biscuity maltiness. A light orange citrus character emerges as it warms, along with a light spicy hop aroma and a suggestion of black pepper. The aroma displays a layered complexity that evolves throughout the glass. Then the flavor shifts slightly, with a light pear ester and subtle bready and nutty malt character complemented by hints of black pepper and spicy hop flavor. A moderate hop bitterness and light alcohol warming linger into a medium-dry finish. This complex and enjoyable Belgian Pale Ale will leave you wanting another pint.
