4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer pours golden and slightly hazy. Big, rocky head that lingers with good lacing. The smell is of strong banana and sweetbreads with a little bit of citrus. This beer does a great job of playing up the yeasty characteristics and letting everything else sing backup. Truly a delicious and unique brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap @ Five Points Grill and bartender explained this was their newest seasonal: a Belgian-style Pale Ale.
A - Pours a rich golden/honey color with a nice head. Generous carbonation and lacing down glass.
S - Aroma is sweet fruit, bits of sour apple, sweet malts, and the undeniable Belgian yeast.
T - Complex with a lot of flavors making appearances. Bready, sweet, sour, spicy, clove, fruity, yeast, oak, slight hop flavor. Dry finish
M - Nice mouthfeel, prickly carbonation,
D - A very enjoyable sessionable example of the Belgian Pale Ale Style. Would love to have this in a bottle conditioned presentation.
Very nice beer
