COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two strains of Trappist yeast, one Belgian ale yeast, and Belgian candi sugar highlight this remarkably intricate, fruity, spicy, and earthy straw-colored Belgian Pale Ale. Belgian Pilsner and Biscuit malts from Beloeil and German Vienna malts from Bamberg provide a clean backdrop for the spicy and lightly herbal Sterling hops. A votre santé from the Bronx.

Draft. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Spicy yeast, flowery hops, and faint bubblegummy yeasty notes. Pretty good.

Hazy golden orange with light head. Tongue picks up light orange peel, maybe a touch of coriander and light unmalted wheat.

Growler from Whole Foods UWS, 05/02/2014. Pours hazy orange gold, fine white head with great retention, big ring of lacing left behind as it settles. Aroma is Belgian pale malts, mild fruitiness, melon, light citrus, round yeast character, mild pepper and grassy herbal hops. Taste is fruity yeast, light pineapple and melon, spicy herbal hoppiness, lingering grassy bitterness. Light airy body, round, drinks easy and smooth. Not bad at all, enjoyable.

Pouring at BCTC. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft musk, light yeast. Medium bodied, spicy yeast, phenols. Grainy, malt earthy. Bitter, sweet into a musky grainy finish.

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13

Aroma: The nose has some spice, Belgian yeast, fruity notes, hop notes, and a little pale malt
Appearance: It pours a golden-orange color with a fairly small head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor, as you might expect, is a mix of the Belgian flavors/spice, the fruit, and the hops
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, with a decent mouthfeel, and lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent Belgian Pale. Though it doesn’t blow you out of the water, I liked it. Solid stuff.

Not very good. Kind of a smoky flavor, which I normally love, but more burning tire than smoked anything else. Also a pervasive bubblegum flavor, which doesn’t work for a beer.

On cask at the Blind Tiger with peppercorns. Arrived to the table a hazy dirty gold with no head. Pleasant aroma of fruity Belgian yeast. The flavor is a lovely combination of fruity Belgian yeast and flavorful peppercorns. I’m guessing they are green peppercorns as opposed to black since the result seems to be more flavor and less heat. Very nice.

Enjoyed on tap at Brouwerij Lane. Big and yeasty, peach-fruit colour. Drinkable though not complex pale it meets the style.

BrewBoxer (2003) - New York, New York, USA - APR 3, 2013
Draft. Cloudy orange color.. Hazy and mild head with foam that fades lacing remains on sides. Has that Belgian booze lemon taste but a little watered down. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1252) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 2, 2013
Cloudy orange yellow with a one-finger white head, good retention and very nice lace. Aromas of Belgian yeast, citrus - pineapple mostly - clove, and black pepper. Sharp citrus tartness, almost sour, with rich bread and cereal malt to give this a very nice balance. Light body, huge effervescence, soft on the palate, and a crisp clean tart finish.
