COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A combination of Belgian and English styles, this Belgian Pale Ale has the subtle spice characteristics of cinnamon and nutmeg, produced by the Belgian yeast. The medium body and biscuity malt backbone, common in English ales, support the subtle hop bitterness to make this beer a perfect blend of styles.

Stuedmaster (295) - Vista, California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours deep gold with almost no head. Not much aroma, slight grain, grass, and biscuit notes. This doesnít taste like a Belgian ale, more like a watery British Bitter. It has fruity notes which are mostly masked by the astringent bitterness of the hops and overall dry feel in the mouth. I donít sense any spiciness. This is similar to a home brew by someone with little experience, itís drinkable but not within style and nothing to distinguish it from the pack.

Appearance - cloudy orange/amber body, 2-finger off-white head, normal retention/lacing Mouthfeel - medium bodied, medium carbonation Flavor - banana bread, earthy, noticeable spice content, finishes fruity Overall - nice overall balance, highly drinkable

>> Thanks DedicatedToFun for the share. Pours a full haze orange with weak foam. Nose is candied orange, flash of acetone, plastic. Taste is mildly sticky, not hoppy at all. Palate is lemon, some biscuit, flashes of marmalade. Soapy, suddy palate. Thinner mouthfeel.

<!> poor head formation, acetone, plastic, weak body

arminjewell (7999) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, toast, hints of banana, clove, spice with a hint of cinnamon, slight yeasty and earthy tone as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, red fruits into some banana, toast, slight spice, yeast, touch of herbal hops, finishing fairly sweet, spicy. The combination didnít quite work for me.
