COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Pale American Belgo style beer was 2010 GABF’s 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%.

Draught at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a small diminishing white head. Mild, fruity aroma, a little sugary with some spices and a hint of hops. Flavour’s more mellow and subtle then I expected, it’s sweet, yeasty and spicy with a light bitter finish. Alcohol’s incredibly well hidden. Decent body for the style. I’m still shocked how mellow this beer is but I quite liked it, a pretty good version of the style.

Ughsmash (7364) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2007
Bottle thanks to Styles! Poured medium orange with a swirly dusting and ring of white head. Nose was of pineapple vodka with sour orange zest... rather odd and didn’t do it for me. Flavor had an unsettling underlying sourness with very tasty pineapple and perfumey hops... some spices... dry, sour pineapple through the finish. This has the potential to be a solid and interesting brew, but I’m guessing it just wasn’t in good shape.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours an incredibly clear and bright copper orange, with a thin ring of white foam. No lacing to speak of, but some thin ’legs’. Perfumy, sweet orange hoppy aroma, fruity like candy, but then again like natural fruit. Then like an orange liquer. Spicy and malty with tangerine and a Belgian bubble gum yeast flavor. Candi sugar is evident. Finishes with a lightly tart fruity citrus - a bit spicy, a bit dry, and a bit alcoholic. Lightly carbonated with body just shy of medium. A complex and enticing brew, difficult to describe, but oh so easy to drink. A kid-in-a-candy-store in a glass.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Draft. Aroma: Lots of orange zest, spice, floral, candi sugar, apple, banana. Interesting. Appearance: Medium golden in color and hazy. Off-white head was full and foamy with decent retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Similar to nose. Lots of fruit (orange, apple, banana), coriander and pepper, floral and light pine hoppiness, candi sugar. Finishes fairly dry, but some sweetness lingers on. Palate: Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Overall: An interesting beer. I liked the play of belgian yeast and american hops.

Fruity sugary aroma,gorgeous orange rust color, sweet fruity taste with some lingering bitterness, in the middle the bitterness is not much of a factor,alcohol not really noticable,a real Belgian classic

Draft, thank you Brew Kettle! Hazy light brown/amber, big white head. Aroma is banana. Flavor is mostly banana with lots of spicy sugary sweetness, caramel, more fruits like apples and orange, maybe some candi sugar finishing with grassy hops and a spicy lingering sweet bitterness. I slammed a few of these real quick.

Draft at 2007 Michigan BGWF. Poured hazy golden color with a moderate white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good tart citrus hoppy aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Good well balanced malty flavor with a moderate smooth balanced finish of moderate duration. Good beer.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2007
Draught. At Cole’s in Buffalo NY. Slightly hazy reddish-amber pour, a small off-white head - looks very nice. Pungent herbal hop aroma, plenty of sugary malt and only a hint of alcohol - odd mix, not sure it works, but soldier on. Tasted like a watered-down tripel - plenty of sweet malt and alcohol, very light spice and banana flavours admixed, herbal hops and more booze in the finish. Very light body, excellent carbonation, very sweet up front with a bitter, dry back end - a little thin, but qutie well made.
