Hell’s Belle

12oz single from Sam’s Blue Light, Durham, NC, USA. Badly misaligned notches on the label do not help, but it looks like this was bottled in Jan ’07. ABV given as 7%.
Lemon colored body with a lively (in fact somewhat fizzy head) that fades quickly. Some spotty surface lace and a little on the glass. It looks like it might be a triple.
Nose has some mild funk that goes beyond the usual Belgian yeast.
I dunno, this drinks like a Biere de Garde more than a Belgian Pale. A lot of extra funk and barnyard than there should be. Light acid/lemon in the taste. Finishes with some light yeast notes, but this seems all out of whack for the style for me.
