COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flat Earth Pale Ale is a Belgian pale ale. Inspired by beers like Orval and Rare Vos. Made with imported Belgian malt and a Belgian yeast strain. Our Belgian pale ale has a sweet malt aroma with traces of orange, plum and pear. Its complex malt backbone of biscuit and hints of toast to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. We hope you enjoy the fresh "Belgian" beer.

650ml bottle with a daog eating a waffle on the label. Pours almost like an amber ale, it is a pale goldish/amber with a decent white head that quickly dissipates. The smell is pretty quirky. To me it smells like rotten banana flavored kefir and brie cheese. It is not what you usually get from brett or lacto, but it is something else weird. At any rate it kind of works. This one just tastes out there, like if you dipped bread in medicine and sprinkled some extremely herbal hops over it. The mouthfeel is a bit over carbonated in the mouth then it leaves a syrupy feeling the the back of the throat. Weird beer if it is supposed to be like this.

Bomber; pours glowing orange with bubbly white and plenty of carbonation; sharp lemon and dusty spice on the nose; certainly has a sharpness to it with the orange and lemon peel; drinks very fizzy and way over carbonated that just explodes going down; spicy pepper, lemons and a little funk to it; a little coriander too with sharp lemon peels and a little yeast; the over carbonation makes this basically undrinkable; so fizzy in the mouth that it’s hard to taste anything besides a little lemon and dry malt; doesn’t taste too infected, but the over carbonation is obvious and there is a little slight sour flavor

It didn’t have the same label on the bottle as the one pictured on the date of my review. Bottle poured into a tulip glass and it produced a two finger white head that trailed of to a thin lace across the glass. The body was a clear amber to almost copper in color. The aroma was right what it should be, nice and yeasty as well as fruity with a hint of spice. Just the way I like my Belgian Pales. The flavor again was right on the money. It started of fruity sweet and spicy with a hit of hops and pepper towards the end. It had a prefect feel in my mouth for a pale with great carbonation. Great to drink, I split the bottle but could have easily finished it myself. An enjoyable brew, I would gladly have this one again. Serving type: bottle

I pulled this out of my cellar, after having it in there for about four months. Popping the top resulted in a quick, but not explosive, gusher, only a little run over the side. Poured a deep, clear amber with a bubbily fizzy head that quickly dissipated down to almost soda-pop like effect. Taste is muted, tastes like a belgian, nothing spectacular there. Though it was terribly fizzy... and that’s not something I really go for in belgians. Overall impression. I wish the head retention was better, this beer would be better served with a sticky-fluffy-white-head instead of a soda-pop fizzbomb. Aside from that, the taste was there. I will get this again, but I think it needs a bit of work. --- older review It took a few drinks, then I realized I must have been drinking this beer way to cold because I wasn’t getting any of the flavors. The pour is a clear golden amber, and the taste is very muted at first but the flavor comes out in the end. Very sessionble.

bsp77 (724) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Poured from growler into new Summit Pint. Bright orange-amber with moderate head at first but dies down quickly with very little lacing. Aroma of mainly fruit and toasted malts. Some slight Belgian funk. Very malty backbone of biscuit, toast and fruit. Slight banana and clove undertones, but not too much. Fairly light on the Belgian spectrum, but quite delicious nonetheless. Lower carbonation than expected for a Belgian beer, medium body, slightly dry finish. Great everyday beer. Nice to have a Belgian flagship for once.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a huge white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of coriander, sweet malty, and caramel. The flavor is sweet and very spicy - especially coriander combined with some malt and caramel, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
