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.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle at The Foundry (Mohamed Sultan Rd), Singapore, 4.5% ABV
Cloudy amber color with generous head. The aroma is moderately spicy, the mouthfeel is lean, dry; the flavor is well spicy, quite like Belgian beers; correct bitterness.
It doesn’t have a distinctive character to raise it above the crowd, but it’s a pleasant beer.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2016
Amber, bit dull, bubbly head. Aroma has a herbal hop character. Mellow, fruity apple and pear hops, not much bitterness, just a nice quaffable session ale.

FatPhil (14098) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2015
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Spicy zingy zesty aroma, orange, but has a belgian twang. Pretty watery palate, blandish taste, some bread and butter, maybe some marmalade hint from the zestiness. Finish has some bitterness as well as the citrussy aromatics, but deep down it’s a bit boring. Perfectly drinkable watery golden ale, the belgian twist was nice.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 26, 2016
from Erzbierschof - cloudy amber-orange beer under a solid foam left; aroma of mint and tead, light soapy; subtle carbonation, medium-bodied, spicy and wheaty finish with lingering notes of tea and mint; quite bitter - using Belgian yeast doesn’t make of it a Belgian ale ...

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle. Very carbonated pour, cloudy golden body, messy white head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, citrus, light ginger. Brisk carbonation and a lighter body make for a gassy mouthfeel. Lemon-lime hop flavour, lightly spicy, low bitterness.
