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

A bit more mild but still pretty ordinary. Definitely sessionable. Some spice and caramel. Personally, not my ideal summer beer.

arondee (577) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a golden amber color with a nice white head. Aroma is orange peel, light malts, light hops. The taste is lightly malty, some sour grain, a little Belgian candy sugar. Super easy to drink, nothing special but also not bad.

Amber in color with a mild malty aroma. It has a wheaty start but more complexity than a typical beer of that style. The malt balances the hops well for a well rounded flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

60minuteman (825) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2014 Translucent brown. Aroma of orange, malt, soap and pine hop. Taste is boring. Subtle hop with a sweet orange malt finish. Kinda boring. Actually no, really boring. But it isn?t offensive.

Look: pours a light copper. White head. Very clear. Smell: slight sour stone. Sweet apple cider. Caramel apple. Taste: bread. Lite sourness. Malt heavy. Slight pine. Earthy flavor. Feel: kind of dry. Medium low carbonation. Overall: ok beer. I prefer more citrus but not bad for a Belgian style pale. First drank: home 11/6/24

HIGHB4LL (632) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 31, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Watford City. Appearance: finger white head, golden copper color, clear, no lacing. Aroma: floral hops, light caramel, light spice, notes of bandages. Palate: light-medium body, average carbonation, cloying texture, bitter finish, sticky. Taste: sweet caramel and sugary sweet, into light floral bitterness. Overall, too sweet and the bitterness does the opposite of balancing due to a poor transition. Very sweet with a full stop, then into bitter. Like the aroma, but that is it.

jgb9348 (4806) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Hazy brown and amber coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of yeast, pungent malt and a hint of light spices, not much else. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong pungent deep bitterness with not much of a yeast component nor anything remotely spicey - this is just funky malts and unpleasant sweetness with no hops. Aftertaste is simple and quite bitter - nothing pleasant here. Overall, not a belgian ale nor an APA or an EPA, this is just plain bad with a style most in common with an amber ale, pure and simple. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle pulled from a autumn sampler on 25-October-2014.

maxwelldeux (3753) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Pours a mostly clear dark amber color. Tastes fairly clean and fresh, and doesn’t have a cloying yeasty note, which was nice. OK.

radagast83 (4902) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle, from mixed-pack. Poured a hazy, bubbly copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma was light pale malts, sweetness, lots of carbonation. Flavor was sweet malt notes, that’s about it. Nothing offensive. A little boring. Would probably only drink again if someone bought one of these box sets.

Awktoberfest (312) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Not much going on hear. Like a cheerleader that cheers from inside a room. It's all just muted. There is no pepiness.. No life. No hops. No aroma. So I found it sadly to be a let down. A flavor flop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle thanks to Gentiles owner. Pretty well balanced. Good carb and bod. Yeasty aroma with grain. Similar taste. Like blue moon without spices
