Looks great. Golden colour, big foamy white head. Aroma is light. Flavour is weak, a bit sweet, not a huge amount going on. Quite gassy, could be a good refrehing beer, but not enough going on to really interest me.

Draft @ McNulty’s bier market in Cleveland! Mostly standard but extremely easy to drink. Clear gold thin head in the proper glassware. Aroma is mild yeast, wheat, fruity hints. Flavor is clean and simple. Mild yeasty presence with weak fruity esthers. Easy to drink, nothing wrong with it.

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Draft at The Brass Tap-U Square, served in a snifter. Pours a bright, mostly clear gold with a small white head that leaves some spots and a tiny ring. Aroma of grass, straw, bread, citrus, mellow spice, and faint florals and herbs. Flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a clean, dry mouthfeel. Nice, simple Belgian ale.

On tap in a tulip glass at Monk’s Cafe. Nice light golden color with a fluffy light head. Taste was a good balance of slight hop bitterness with lots of floral and citrus notes. Good enough to have a second glass right away. Paired well with a Monk’s take on mac-n-cheese.

Serrved on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a crystal clear light golden-amber color with a nice one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very slowly over time leaving a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell –The aroma is heavy of a light fruit smell with peach and apricot being the heaviest and is accompanied by lightly toasted malt smell. Along with these smells comes some aromas of a light yeasty nature as well as some candied sugar and toasted bread smells. A little bit of a graininess and some grass and herbal hop smells add to the overall nose and create a rather pleasant and crisp aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice blend of sweeter fruitiness and crisp malt. The sweeter fruits are mainly of a peach and apricot nature, but also contain a little bit of an apple taste. The malt that is present upfront is mainly of a pale Belgian malt taste taking on a somewhat doughy and lightly toasted biscuit nature. As the taste moves forward the malt and fruit remain rather constant with some other flavors of a light yeast and a bit of a grassy flavor coming to the tongue. A bit of a graininess and some floral and citrus hop flavors come to the tongue at the end, leaving a somewhat sweeter but very crisp and quite drinkable Belgian pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is thinner and crisp with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation are fantastic for complementing the lightly toasted, malty, and fruity flavors of the brew with the high effervescence adding to its very drinkable nature. Overall- A quite tasty and more sessionalble Belgian pale ale. While not quite to the level of its bottle fermented brethren, it is very crisp and tasty none the less and makes for a very delicious brew.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Classic dandelion yellow with airy cotton foam. Fresh dough, tinny honey aroma; light green herbs are constantly present but never obvious or distinguishable. Lavender, white pepper, fresh flowers.

Hugely herbal flavor, vibrant and lush with tarragon, mint, and fresh flowers; banana, and tangerine in expert balancing sweetness, just to settle it and nothing more. White tea leaves, musty yeast and cereal grain, spicy and smooth.

Soft carbonation in a somewhat brittle body; there is very little content mid palate. Acidic, bright finish with citrus zest and dry cottony yeast.
