COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

reebtogi (5190) - 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.

kidmartinek (4161) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Awesome. Deep, hazy gold color so its opaque. The head is big, dense, white frothy goodness. It has a light aroma of faint malt and hops yet the aroma still satisfies. The ody is medium yet fully satisfying. The taste is a medium malt and bitterness making it a balanced beer good for a session.the finish has a nice bitter kick followed by a weak sweetness, and a closing bitterness.

Gurthnar (4077) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle from Ottakringer shop. BBD 7.9.2015. Which was something like a month overdue when we bought it. Aroma exceptionally heavy lightstruck. Hazy orange colour. Weird mint tea notes in taste. Also lightstruck. My suggestion for Baird Brewery - take care where you distribute. I have had some very good beers brought to me from Japan by a friend (Dusan)

KansaiBeerLvrs (3794) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2013
4.7% at Tadg’s draft pint 1100 yen with 200 yen off during happy hour. Great honey gold color with a piney + citrus hop aroma over a malty base. The taste is thin bodied, a bit watery but it has a bitting bitter start, biscuity middle & lingering sweet fruity finish. Pretty good, it would benefit from a fuller mouthfeel though... As it warms up it gets a bit of spiciness to it, nice.
