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.

kidmartinek (3741) - 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.

RexTalionis (2958) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Slightly unclear dark orange in color with a whitish head. Bit of funky bready and lemony notes in aroma. Feels quite fresh. Grassy, slighlty yeasty spicy and biscuity feeling in taste. Bit light, but has that nice spicy kick in the end.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2854) - 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.

pintbypint (2830) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2013
360ml brown bottle. Gold pour, small white head. Nose has lime and white grape notes, some caramel and yeast as well. Taste is dryish and clean, a bit of light caramel and mild citrus. Dry finish with minerals. Light mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Hoppy belgian yeasty pale ale, good, hop aromas seem to bleed away a bit too quickly, but a nice little ale, certainly sessionable.
