COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a light Belgian Pale ale with a seamless blend of yeast and hop aroma, such that you can’t tell where one ends and the other starts. The palate is dry and slightly tart, with a moderate Belgian texture.

On tap at o’connels. Not a bad belgian pale, brilliant copper-orange colour with a thick, fluffy, white head which lasts to the end. Aroma is fruit and bread, ripe guava, pineapple, toasted white bread. Taste is sharp, light bitterness which is carried by a fair amount of carbonation. Light bodied and a dry finish. I’ve tried this beer on two seperate occasions and found it to be slightly different each time, I think the first time was near the end of the keg though.

From a bottle. Pours clear orange, tiny lasting head, sharp hops flavours, it grows on you.

ALLOVATE (2333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 11, 2014
Whispily yeasted in appearance with a single stream of fine carbonation coming to atmosphere. The body a pastel orange in colour. Holds aloft a tidy, tight layer of white that manages minimal lacing. Little bit too much eggy fart on the nose linked with hints of pear drops, cloves and Band-aid like phenols, haybales, apple pulp and scented talcum powder. Dusty malt starts it off on the palate. Carbonation is high but fades towards the swallow. Medium light bodied with a dry finish. Low bitterness, grassy, light hop length with a hint of orange and lime peel. A touch of pear drop candy and lychee in late. Bottled it didn’t exactly rise my spirit, but I think this would be a gem brewery fresh on draught. Unsteady nose, average beer, but overall an easy drinking number. (33cL, BB 02/04/14, Liquor Baron’s Ocean Reef)

Jado (487) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange-amber with a pillowy white head and light carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, lemon, hay and coriander. Taste is lighter than the nose would suggest but there’s sweet malt at first followed by a burst of orange zest bitterness. Creamy palate. Slightly sweet finish with a gently fruity aftertaste. Subdued, but not bad at all.

M_Sack (336) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2013
Tap @ royal albert. Hazy gold/orange with small, quickly dissipating head. Citrus (predominately lemon) and baked biscuit aromas. I didn't pick up any Belgian styled yeast but perhaps it was served slightly too cold. Lots of lemon, a touch of orange and just a hint of bread. A rather hollow and simplistic version but enjoyable as a bit of a quaffer at the pub.

Clear copper color, off-white head. Sweet, malty, light acidic, fruity scent. Sweet, spicy, hoppy, light acidic taste. Spicy aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

mattyhennessy (253) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours an amber golden colour with a foamy white head. Strong flavour despite the low abv. Stone fruit, banana and yeasty flavours are predominant. Low carbonation. Needs some more finishing hops to add a lingering flavour

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2013
Another good local interpretation. Nice mild cooked fruit malt action and a touch of spice. Does finish lighter than I might have expected.

Pours a clear amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, cloves, some fruit and some hops. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a light yeasty finish. Decent.
