COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Pale American Belgo style beer was 2010 GABFs silver medal winner. It has notes of spicy pineapple, mango bubblegum aromas which comes from the unique marriage of a special Bel-gian yeast and an American Simcoe hop. This beer has an initial soft malt sweetness with orange fruitiness and finishes with a hoppy dryness.
A.B.V. formerly at 10.0% and 10.5%.

Hayz orange color, steady white head. Citrus, fruityness, kind of Saison yeast in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish fruityness, apricot and mango. Saisony flavor too! Yeast overrides Simcoe but nice beer.

Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and fruity hops with a bit of spice. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Tap @ Henriks. Clear deep golden with a small but dense lightly tanned head. Aroma is peachy, faint citrus and yeast. Taste is intense peachy-fruity esters. Faint alcohol notes and a very well bitter to sweet balance. Body is close to full, co2 is close to high.

ClubGonzo (3993) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 20, 2014
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy light orange body, small white head. Nose is banana, almond essence, sweet sugary tones and hints of alcohol and caramel. Taste is banana, coconut, caramel and hints of alcohol and biscuity malts. Full body, medium carbonation. Strange sweet stuff; not bad but where is the Simcoe? All I get is massive Belgian banana-dominated ester tones and tons of sweetness.

Hazy copper pour with a thin soapy white head .... Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruity, oranges and Bubblegum .... Taste of fruity Belgian yeast, oranges, floral hops, bubblegum and a dry bitter hop ... Dry and bitter finish with a lingering fruity yeast flavor ... Has a slight hint of abv in the aroma. ... Overall a solid Belgian strong bordering on a Belgian pale ale
