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 (16428) - 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 doesnít have a distinctive character to raise it above the crowd, but itís a pleasant beer.

FatPhil (10892) - 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 itís a bit boring. Perfectly drinkable watery golden ale, the belgian twist was nice.

DuffMan (7999) - 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.

Idiosynkrasie (4922) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has a peach note, some nectarine, floral hoppy overtones, a cautious herbal spicy yeasty touch with hints of white pepper, peppercress, mustard seed. Taste is minimally sweet and tart fruity, very explicit notes of peach, a touch of nectarine, dry hoppy counterpart, some yeasty spiciness; slightly watery. Sadly the richness of subtle flavours isnít fully reproduced in taste.

reebtogi (4819) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2012
330ml bottle pours golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasant hops with hints of yeast. Taste is light fruity sweetness with a pleasant hop bitterness with plenty of carbonation and decent body to bring everything together nicely. A very well done session ale with a Belgian twist.
