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.

On tap. Hazy gold with little to no head. Starts like a Belgian white with the cloves and spice and finishes like a pale ale. Pretty good.

Pours a hazy orange body with thin white head. Appearance resembles cider. Yeasty aroma with floral hints and some clove mixed in. Spice and slight citrus notes in the taste. Decent beer overall.

Here is something new - cans from the Bronx brewery. This is an interesting release - a fairly light ale with European elements. Nice pour with a big was of foam. Smooth, biscuit like malts and dry American hops make a nice combination. Not much going on in the aroma unfortunately. Perfectly pleasant.

Enjoyed on tap at Beercade in Brooklyn, NY. Cask version. Appearance is a lightly cloudy gold with not much head. Aroma is dominated by yeast, but that's to be expected, spices/clove shine through. Taste is pretty good, clove still the primary ingredient, nice and easy drinking. Overall decent.

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.
