3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted this at Beer World in DC while visiting, wanted to try a local brew and glad I did. Good amber color with a nice haze, frothy head and high carbonation. Smooth on the back end.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Hazy tangerine with a foamy head of white that recedes quickly. Aroma is a little grainy, with sharp pepper, dried orange peel and very faint Belgian esters. The flavor’s petty similar, though there’s a little more Belgian banana and pear offset by pepper and dried hop bitterness. Dry, crackery finish. The body’s a bit heavy and viscous, but balance between hop bitterness and malt sweetness keeps things drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Presentation: It was poured from a 12 oz can into a tulip glass.
Appearance: The body has a light hazy body with a small white head. The head quickly fades out completely.
Smell: It’s aroma is light with notes of honey covered cereal and fresh white bread.
Taste / Palate: The flavor is sweet and bready with hints of orange peel. It also has just the slightest hint of grassy/floral hops in the background. The palate feels smooth and very lightly carbonated. Overall I don’t get much in the way of a Belgian style ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was poured into a chalice.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than forty seconds. Concave lacing rings around the glass in a mess sort of way.
The smell had a spritzy sort of spiced orange juice and orange peel. Slight floral and grassy qualities roam about but mostly in a separated sort of weird way.
The taste was moderately sweet with an ample spice and a slight sweet grassy to semi-sweet bubblegum here and there. A semi-dry sweet finish ends the taste.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Dry fruity notes roll over my tongue.
Overall, I say this was a good Belgian pale ale.

Flavors were very muted. Some Belgian yeast in the nose and taste, but not much else going on for me. Basically, a big let down.
