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.

kramer (4892) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2009
25 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange body with a thin fizzy white head that vanished completely fairly quickly. The nose is a little sweet for being a Belgian Pale, some honey, candi sugar, light belgian yeast, and maybe a little diacetyl. The flavor is pretty muddled, too much sweetness, not enough belgian character, and almost zero hops. That diacetyl comes out more on the finish the more it warms up. Mouthfeel is a little slick with an annoying clingy finish. A good bit of fizzy prickly carbonation. This was not good. Poor execution and obvious brewing flaws.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Clear copper, fleeting,small white head, no lace. Grainy aroma, some light stone fruit, and a distant floral character. Slightly watery, very little carbonation. Lightly sweet fruit flavors continue into the finish, which kind of washes out.

Surpisingly good beer that I picked up at Hutch Liqour. I get a little bit of a bitter taste, a hint of honey and spice. Nice light flavored beer great for warm days and BBQs because it’s really a refreshing beer.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Tasted 1/29/09. 22oz bomber. Explosive upon opening. Lost about a third of the brew to eruption. Golden bronze hue with three fingers of lacing bone whitehead. Aromas of cirtus and peppery. Good yeasty aromas. Medium bodied and crsip. Astringent effervescence. Nice, almost chalky yeast character. Decent malt backbone , but the yeast is the dominant flavor. Followed closely by the hops, which are piney and citrusy. Finishes crisp.

DalzAle (1973) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Unfiltered version from growler pciked up at the brewery today. Hazy amber/orange pour with plenty of carbonation with a fruity belgian/pear aroma. Flavor was plenty of malt, belgian yeast and finished a little sweet and fruit. Good for a summer bbq.

Alopex (56) - Crystal, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Bottle into a pint glass. Pours a nice copper orange color with a nice pale white head. Aroma is of malt and a bit of spice. The first sip reminded me of sour cherries followed by orange and the destinctive taste of a belgian yeast. Took my a few sips to decide if I liked it but by the end I was sure this was a pretty good brew.

MrChopin (3258) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 2, 2009
Shimmering red-amber, small beige head. Musty nose of apple pie, caramel. Yeasty flavor of apple, pear, honey, and bread, some grassy notes surfacing. A little thin, watery, and short. Ok stuff, but Jolly Pumpkin has done 6-8 better domestic Belgians and I can’t get around how little this offers by comparison.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a doughy malt with ample fruit and honey like sweetness. The flavor was a biscuity malt base, light caramel, dough yeast, fruit, and a mineral like quality. Some bitterness in the finish.

Bomber courtesy of mattsciguy. Pours coper with a nice white sustained head. Smells of spice, tea, bubblegum, sweet, citrussy. Tastes sweet and grassy with an herbal finish and a lasting touch of bitterness,
