Amber ale with an average head. Cereal, biscuit and hop aroma. Nice balance between the hops and sugars. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Spicy rye plays well with citrus hops along with some earthy, herbal notes in the nose. Clear copper coloured body is topped by a decent white head that recedes to a lasting coverwith excellent lacing. Very dry malt forward flavour shows off the spicy rye character nicely and plays well against the assertive bitterness. Herbal, earthy, citrus hop flavours come into play toward the finish. Medium light body is quite dry with lively carbonation that engages the tongue. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

Pint on tap at the brew pub. Pours a little darker than a normal Pale Ale. The rye is certainly present in the aroma as well as the hops. Taste was malty and bitter, well balanced. The taste lingered in the back of the mouth for quite a while. Over all, this is another excellent brew from Benelux, I would be more than happy to drink this all the time.

Tap at the brewery. Very interesting beer. Aromas of citrus, caramel, and grain. Taste is sweet, with bitterness taking over, and average duration. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, bubbly, with a frothy head.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2011 In short: Clean and solid Rye-based APA. Very good.
How: Tap at brewpub, many many times. Latest version is 5.4%
The look: Clear golden-copper body with a medium off-white head.
In long: Dry caramelized grainy malts meet juicy orangy floral hops. The rye really shows up in this one.. Well balanced beer with a medium sweetness countered by a sharp medium bitterness. Very clean and very solid. One of the first beer from this recent brewpub. I had it over a year ago the first time the brewed and I didn’t care much for it back then but this beer has been steadily getting better. Now drinking this beer makse me feel like meeting a former highschool nerd library rat from 10 years ago that is now a foxy bombshell, I regret any mean things I may have said about her.

Verre de 20 oz, d’un fût à la brasserie. Arômes de houblons citronnés et de fruits jaunes. Robe cuivrée, peu de mousse et légèrement effervescente. En bouche, elle possède un petit côté velouté et une légère acidité provenant probablement du seigle. On note également une présence fruitée et sucrée de fruits jaunes (prunes jaunes). Le houblon citronné ferme la marche de façon autoritaire pour une Pale Ale.

Draught pint shared at the brewpub with tiggmtl during the Mondial, 2006. Good thick lacing and a small but creamy and lasting white head top the coppery-clear body....grapefruit, lavender and a lovely earthy pungency tickle the nose....body is very full, juicy with a big rye-sourdough character and lots of citric bitterness from midpalate on to the long finish....resinous character, lovely balance, one of the spicier pale ales I’ve had recently.

Reddish amber ale with a thin white head. Nice hoppy malt, lightly fruity. In mouth, a fresh nice pale ale, sweet biscuitty malt and floral hops, quaffable and pleasant. Medium bodied.
