3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, fairly toasty malt and fruity Belgian yeast. It has a medium / full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma hops, bready malt and Belgian earthiness. The finish adds some spiciness and dough. Nice Belgian pale.

Going to have to assume this is what was being poured under the note "Belgian Pale " at the FoBAB documentary party on Jan. 10. Malty pale ale smell. Not much hop in the nose, but then thereís a tangy, hoppy taste to it. Like its cousins Orval and Maltida, has over savory components that set it apart from the average pale beer.

Poured from draft at Haymarket Brewey in Chicago. Orange and clear. Sweet lemon and grass aroma. Fruit and citrus taste. Slight hops. Very good for a Belgium which I usually don't like

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Belgian pale yeasty nose. Murky yellow body with a white head. Dirty belgiany flavors. Thin body. Dry. Kinda messy. Bitter finish. Like the other Belgian ones Iíve had here, I think the yeast just needs a little more time to clean up and turn into a simpler more palatable beer. 6/3/6/3/12
On tap at Belgian fest 2012. Hazed yellow. Light lemon crisp. Bitter tasty effervescent. 7/3/7/4/15

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap the pub...A super murky neon straw, strangely reminds me of a glass of yeast. A couple fingers of white head, good lacing...Yeast and lots of it, yeast, and lemons. Not bad, needs to be a little sweeter...The taste starts off very yeasty, but brings about some nice sweet notes.. The finish is chalky and surprisingly alcoholic, which is a big detractor.
Besides the finish this is pretty easy to drink. Iíd have it again.

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.
