COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Belgian-style Extra Pale Ale is brewed with heaps of sweet Mandarin oranges from Blossom Bluff Farms and California two-row barley. We dry-hop with generous doses of aromatic Cascade and Columbus hops and finish the beer with a hint of lightly toasted American oak.

Draft at sb. Pours a clear medium amber with bright edges. Dense creamy white head that sticks around forever. Tons of lace. Big orange pine nose. Creamy medium body with bright carb. Caramel, oranges, orange peel, and pine on the mid palate. Crisp refreshing finish.

Stuedmaster (244) - Vista, California, USA - DEC 9, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar, on sale for 75 cents. Pours rich dark gold with a nice, thick, creamy, white head that leaves decent lacing, with visible little bubbles. Aroma of mandarin orange, light caramel, and grapefruit. Has a nice snappy feel on the tongue, quite refreshing. I normally don’t like American high alpha hops but this works for me. A little too heavy on the hops, not what I would associate with a Belgian ale. Almost into American IPA range. Has a biscuit like flavor. The hops leave an earthy, bitter aftertaste, they seem to overwhelm the mandarin orange. It’s nice overall but I prefer low alpha hops like a traditional Belgian.

@ Mikkeller Bar Stockholm 14-11-8: En ganska änkelhumlad pale ale med tydlig gräsig touch. Fin beska.

Bottle at Mikkeller Stockholm. Hazy amber with a medium white head. Aroma of light hops, caramel, biscuits and some grapefruit. Similar taste. The finish was medium bitter. I wonder how fresh the bottle was?

Classic BPA, yeasty and floral aroma with hints of citrus. Flavor is nice, with those same attributes and a slightly dry finish. Quite complex, tasty, yet refreshing and quaffable."
