The concept for our Single-Take Session Ale is this: a moderate gravity (11.7 P) Belgian-yeast fermented ale that enjoys lots of hop-flavor and hop-aroma character without exhibiting much hop-bitterness (only 20 IBUs). We want Single-Take to deliver a complex yet balanced flavor explosion that is bright and sprite and never fatiguing. A deft grist combination of floor-malted barley (Maris Otter and Bohemian Pilsner), wheat and rye provide the perfect stage upon which our whole hop actors (German Tettnanger, Czech Saaz, American Santiam and Amarillo) get to sparkle. Our Belgian yeast strain holds the entire flavor performance together with its firm, spicy and tart directorial oversight.

It's a nice beer, it's lacking a bit of "umph" but as they say themselves, it's a sessionable ale.

willisread (1887) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Re-rate at Naka-meguro Taproom: More Belgian saison-like notes on the nose with some fruit, banana, lemon zest and pepper. Not much citrus, very saison like in a way. Solid and enjoyable. On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a half pint shaker. Straw-colored with a modest white head. Strong Leon, lime aroma with pine needle/resin undertones. Medium body with a nice crisp dry finish. A really good session ale.
