COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian-style abbey ale crafted like those that Trappist monks brew for their own session beer. It is light bodied, light in color and relatively lower in alcohol with spicy phenolics and complex fruity esters of cherries, nectarines, peaches and bubblegum with a characteristic slightly tart and dry finish from the Belgian yeast.

Poured a hazy Orange colour with a fluffy head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spice, clove and a mesh of fruits. An initial malty and peppery flavor is followed by the traditional yeast flavors and notes of fruit. Slightly tart, but low bitterness. Great value and introduction to the Destihl brand. Yet, nowhere near the quality of their other brews.

A solid session beer is on the low end of the Destihl price point. An ideal picnic or camping release shows mastery of lower ABV styles. I would easily recommend this to newcomers as well as those looking to branch out to explore new breweries. If you haven’t tried Destihl beers yet this is is a great start.

Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden base shimmers in the shaker with a fresh white head for company. Wheat, malt, and low key hops tickle the senses. This is full of depth without being overwhelming - perfect for a beer that is meant to be somewhat understated.

Flavor / Palate - Cream soda and ginger snaps taste like the lazy days of summer. A lemony foundation ties together disparate experiences including a nice dash of spice. This could have a bit more depth but it is on very close to the mark. The fact that it can be purchased in a sixer for about $10 makes it a great fallback for the summer months.

Has a thick, white, crackly-foamy head, a very hazy, gold-orange appearance, some bubble streams, and a thin lace sheet left behind. The aroma is of pungent, peppery, funky, spiced bread, with possibly a shade of fruit spritz. Taste is of those elements, with a somewhat stronger citrus component, mellow bitterness, sugar, pepper, white bread, and white bread crust. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly from carbonation. Finishes mostly dry and decently drinkable.

Poured a golden color with aromas of light fruit, bananas, yeast and some pepper. Flavors matched the aromas, but a little off. Yeast and banana comes through, light pepper, expected a little more form these guys.

This is a nice saison-ish Belgian beer. It is cloudy orange w/ a small soapy head. The nose is fruity w/ a bit of banana and some pineapple and cherry. This comes off as mildly sweet but that is mostly lack of bitterness and overall does not cloy or taste heavy at all. It is a lightly tart beer w/ vigorous carbonation. it finishes dry w/ some lingering fruit and spice on the palate. To be honest, I am not 100% certain this beer is not infected w/ brett and possibly some bacteria. It seems tarter than it should be. In this case though, the intruding microflora--if that’s what they are--seem to be beneficial and it made for a nice drink.

Can pour. Clear golden color with lasting white foam. Spicy, peppery phenolic aromas with light fruits. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dry, spicy, peppery flavors with dusty pale malts, light pit fruits---nicely bitter crisp finish____good.
