COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lighter, refreshing Belgian-style ale. This mash consists of a small quantity of Munich and caramel malts for a light body and color. A larger percentage of wheat malt gives this beer it's crispness and drinkability. It is hopped sparingly for minimal bitterness and mellow hop flavor and aroma. We ferment with a classic Belgian yeast strain which gives this beer unique fruity esters.

Bottle courtesy of scrizzz. Pours a hazy orange with a small white ring of head. Aroma and flavor of melon rind, Belgian yeast, and light fruits with a slightly hoppy finish. Very drinkable and quite tasty for an American-brewed Belgian ale. I don’t know why this gets such a low average. Nice, yeasty, fruity, and tasty.

I took my own advice to rate beers from this brewer blind and this time it did not fare too well. Really quite dreadful and the 1.4 score may even be a tad generous. The main characteristic I pick up from this is a metallic finish. This brewer is all over the place in quality, if my own ratings are any guide.

12 ounce bottle from By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--A ruby golden clear body with a sustained white rocky head. Yeasty,caramel nose with some nutty gritty, sweet hops. Flavor of sticky, oaty, creamy ingredients. Very enjoyable though not super memorable. Dicks continues to impress. Yum!

This smells terrific ( i love the belgian yeasts and coriander). The taste is good but not great. Each sip i formed a different opinion. It’s alright but not great. Maybe it would be better off tap.

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2008
Received a 12-oz bottle via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear orange amber brew with a thick off-white head that slowly dissipates to a creamy off-white head and some good lacing. Aroma of sweet amber malts, flowery hops, a touch of candi sugar, bubble gum, some toffee and pear fruits. Taste is medium body, very little carbonation with flavors of light banana, mango, a touch of bubble gum and a touch of coriander. Finish is semi-sweet, crisp with a mild fruity aftertaste that slowly disappears. One of Dick’s better brews.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2008
Pours honey-amber with a 2" cream color head. Good amount of lacing. Aroma is floral piney hop. One of the most aromatic brews I’ve had. The taste is rich malts with mildly bitter hops. Hops seem to be mostly of European type. IBU seems fairly high for the style which I enjoyed. Good bitter finish. Very tasty.
