750 mL corked & caged. Green’s, Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. $6.95 from memory. 06/06/09 on the label.
Given that this is the Ambree (compared to the Blonde) I was expecting a deeper copper colored hue than I got. It was surprisingly light in color. Huge, billowing head in the Duvel tulip, it looks pretty good. Some nice lacing.
Fine carbonation, slightly prickly in the mouth. Sweet nose, a little Belgian yeast. As others have mentioned, the label says 10.5% ABV and it certainly drinks above the BA database listed 6.5%, but at the same time it is not overpowering.
Mouthfeel is where this beer lets you down. Very thin for the style and a little watery.
Sweetness dominates, but there remains some dry, pepper spice. Decent Belgian Pale without the depth of a classic Duvel or one of the “better” or more classic Belgian pales.
