COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1940’s, Belgian-Style Pale Ales grew in popularity and were ordered by the round due to their balanced taste. Rounder, our expression of this sessionable style, is crafted with hibiscus and orange peel for a hint of spiciness and touch of wheat for a smoother, rounder taste.

Malts: Pale, Imported Caramel, Imported Light Caramel, White Wheat
Hops: Cascade
Our Twist: Orange Peel, Hibiscus

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle drank on the Metro North railway on my journey into Manhattan. Pours perfectly clear copper with a fine, white foam head. Bready malt nose with generic ripening fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with a character defined mostly by bready malts, hints of toasty dough, soft caramel notes, slight bitterness. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with more basic, bready malts, faint leafy hops, some lightly dried caramel, doughy brown bread. Simple beer but fine overall.

bhensonb (11381) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a creamy, transient beige head. Aroma is floral/citrus with some subtle caramel backing. Med body. Flavor is more floral than anything else, with a little sweet caramel. Some citrus in the finish. Which is more malty than not.

Tmoney99 (10971) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle. Poured clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a soft sweet drinkable beer.

Drake (8765) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle. This is probably an alias, but rating it just in case. Pours a clear copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of, well, not much. Faint caramel and wheat. The taste is bready malts, nutty notes, stone fruits, a salty note and mild raisin and hops. Medium bodied.

shrubber85 (7867) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Light orange and barley malt aroma. Amber with nice off-white head. Very light barley malt and tin flavor. Mild bitter orange peel finish. Nothing here - couldn’t even be considered a passable Belgian Ale for someone who considers Stella Artois to be the acme of Belgian brewing.

crossovert (7724) - Illinois, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Pitiful beer, absolute joke. Watery throughout, very mild carbonation, near diacetyl

deyholla (6861) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear caramel amber with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of straw and grain with a bit of spice that comes through. Flavor is more bland with notes of straw, grain and bread.
