3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. This one was quite interesting. Poured a clear gold and had a very dry feel to it. Hoppy, but not overwhelming. Dryness was the prevailing feeling for this one - but not in a bad way. I couldn’t see myself having more than 1 or 2, but it was certainly worth a try.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Very hazy light yellow. Incredible aroma! Sammy says "It smells like a summer day on an island!" Guava, white grapefruit, summer flowers, wheat malts. Light, crisp, and dry, but bursting with flavour. This, to me, is a perfect summer session ale. Outstanding!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Sampler at the brewpub. Pours a dull yellow color with a slight haze to it. Firm foam head was long lasting. Initial aroma of yeast esters, wheat malt and mild clove. The taste is of green apples, pear, lemongrass and light malts. Not particularly well balanced, but still pretty dry and sessionable. This would be better with a slight recipe tweek.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clouded, golden-orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is banana with a good amount of citrus and Belgian yeast. Fairly lemony with a light wheat tartness as well. Flavor is similar. Banana and lemony citrus up front with a light wheat. Some yeast and a light tartness in the middle before the hops kick up towards the end and dry this out completely with a moderate, earthy and piney bitterness along with a slightly tart lemon, peppery yeast, and Belgian yeast. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and carbonation. Overall, a solid Belgian pale ale. Nice flavor and well hopped with a distinct Belgian yeast. Easy drinking and very flavorful for being only 4.5% ABV.
