Devil's Backbone's Azrael is kind of a hybrid pale/Belgian ale, and it's pretty good once you get past a mildly unpleasant smell. The color is a bright, clear yellow and there is basically no head and no lace at all. There is Belgian yeast in the aroma, but there's also a smell like boiled cabbage that I didn't enjoy. I did enjoy the flavor. It's like a mild pale ale with a Belgian brewer's yeast and a slightly fruity finish. Bananas, vanilla wafers, etc. I liked the flavor more than the aroma.
