COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This fine pale ale has citrus and tropical fruit aromatic shared with a well-balanced – yet abundant – hop character. It uses our own Belgian yeast, five malts, two hops, and plenty of patience. Finishing touches include dry-hopping with Cascade hops and warm-cellaring.

Another great beer from this brewer. Had on tap at 28 Springs. Pours amber with a big head. Slightly sweet and malty with some citrus. Slightly bitter on the finish. Very nice.

PapaSkeetSkeet (799) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Amber gold with a tower of off-white head 3x the size of the fluid beneath it. The head recedes leaving drying, shrinking tufts of foam around the rim with a channel at the point of departure, an inverted balding soft old beer visiting American from lands across the sea. A rich smell of delicious, lightly salty caramel with some grainy bread and buttery biscuit fills the air before me. Seaweed. Body is medium-light, fairly creamy moderate, very soft carbonation. Flavor is a sweet rye bread with light parsley in it. Caramel is lighter and comes through in a slow pulse a half second in, and the grain is dryer, like raw oats. The overall flavor is light, but so clean that you don’t mind, like a very good jazz recording on a crazy uncles nice speakers turned low, but sounding punchy and loud. Thank you Ommegang. If you were a church, I might join, but I am constrained to drink your beer.

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - AUG 21, 2013
A clear golden body with a thick white head that faded to a thin coating. Nice lacing. Carbonation was effervescent. Aroma had a nice mix of bubblegum and banana notes. Some mild biscuit malts. There was a nice floral presence almost like hibiscus. Flavor had good yeasty flavors. Mildly doughy but there was a nice fruit note to it. Carbonation was present but not overpowering. A nice crisp finish..

This is probably my favorite beer of all time. I’ve always had a soft spot for Belgian-style beers, and this pale ale is exceptional.

Headbanger (3005) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Sample Brewery 7/26/13-Pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, yeast, and bread. Taste of the same with more hops and yeast. This medium to full bodied is well balanced and very easy to drink. Kick ass brew.

UncleKorm (654) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle poured a hazy golden-orange hue w/ large fizzy white head slowly diminishing to a thin lasting cap and some lacing. Moderate sweet citrus aroma. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate bitter finish. Tastes are straw, orange, lemon, and earthy Belgian yeast. Light to medium bodied, watery texture, lively carbonation. A well balanced hop-yeast-malt blend.

HighlanderOne (958) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Poured from bottle. Aroma of vanilla cake, spice. Cloudy gold, lots of lacing. I taste vanilla, orange, pineapple, mango, grass, banana, pepper, yeast Hard to distinguish between the hops and citrus. But maybe that’s a good thing. Could use a little more flavor and body to put it over the top, but still an excellent beer.

Gramoit (347) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
Pours a golden colour with a big fluffy white head. Citrus notes on the nose and some belgian yeast. Taste reminds me very much of one of Little Creatures Brewing Co’s Single batches The Quiet American), however found this this to be not as flavoursome and relied more on the typical Belgian flavous than the typical APA Flavours.
