Valeir Extra, Brouwerij Contreras

Appearance: Valeir Extra pours a gamboge, nectar-like colour along with a cream-toned crown, which spouts a decent posture of roughly 2" if height. Plenty of micro-sized bubbles, which ascends like an, seemingly, ever flowing stream (soon to be flat) as the Styrofoamingly thick crown dissolves and leaves an opulent legacy of lacing.

Smell: Overall this one is quite the fruitcake since we get banana, floral hop notes, citrus, peach nectar, buttery (pie)dough and possibly oats or wheat for that matter.

Taste: Rather mild acridity slightly reminiscent to that of grapefruit (even when decantated completely the bitterness isn"t all that noticeable), mellifluous characteristics of dried banana as notes of pineapple display an example of great persistence.

Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium, very smooth, the visibly all so strikingly high amount of carbonation detected is nowhere as evident as one would expect but it"s still enough to give the beer a decently fresh result.

Drinkability: For a Belgian Pale Ale, all too anonymous, not bad by any means or measures, but it simply doesn"t stand out from the Bishop"s gathering.
