Pale Rover Belgian-style Pale Ale - Our friend Colin’s version of this delicious session ale. Pale Rover shows lightly sweet tea biscuit-like malt flavors, firm spicy bitterness, flowery herbal hop aromas, and a mild tropical fruit-like yeast character.

Nose is yeasty and fruity with hints of clove, spice, and banana. Malt base is bready with some tropical fruits and light peppery hops. Pours hazy pale golden, bubbly head and light lace. The flavor is bready malts, peppery hops, some tropical fruity notes, light banana and clove as well. Nice mouth feel and body. Enjoyable, sessionable, nicely done.

On tap at Tutta Bella. A very refreshing, fruity, and malty belgian pale ale. Aroma hints of a Saison with tropical overtones, however the underlying malt body and substantial carbonation make this a very approachable and drinkable BPA. Served a little on the frozen side, this BPA displays excellent floral and citrus aromas with an excellent mouthfeel and biscuit-like malt sweetness. Esters are spot on for the style. Does appear fairly cloudy however head retention is good and lacing is substantial. There are no better BPA’s made in Washington.

Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a very slightly hazy medium bronzy gold with a loose tan head that sticks around for a while, but not forever. Sweet nose of some malty sugars, almost candi-like but not quite, along with some darker slightly toasty notes and a lot of rich dry autumn leaves. Creamy medium body with carb that’s lively but a bit spread out. Great blended mid-palate of sweet and savory notes, the sugars are there along with the autumn leaves and some yeasty spice. Clean finish. Very refreshing.
