Dageraad Brewing Burnabarian – Belgian Pale Ale at 4.5% ABV

Dageraad Brewing Burnabarian Belgian Pale Ale at 4.5% ABV (C$7.79 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before, reviewed 27-Nov-2015)

Appearance: clear pale gold with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, coriander, apples and pears, white pepper, stone fruit, pale malt, mild funk. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: light body, moderate carbonation, drying and slightly astringent finish. (4/5)

Light, pleasant and uncomplicated, exactly what one would expect for a Belgian table beer. Not without its faults – I’m getting a little brown apple, for example – but still a decent and authentic-tasting light beer. Dageraad continues to impress. (14/20)
