2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit more mild but still pretty ordinary. Definitely sessionable. Some spice and caramel. Personally, not my ideal summer beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a mostly clear dark amber color. Tastes fairly clean and fresh, and doesn’t have a cloying yeasty note, which was nice. OK.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

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.

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