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.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - JUN 23, 2010
750ml caged&corked bottle. Pours cloudy orange gold with very thick offwhite head that slowly fades to a thin disc and leaves spots and streaks of lace. Aroma is malty with herbal hints and light citrus, slightly musty, and some slightly peppery phenol characters. Flavor starts bready malty with hints of must and spice. Bready with subdued barnyard funk and light earthy balancing bitterness towards midpalate. Light malt sweetness balances a moderately dry toasty complex (fruit, spice, and yeast) finish. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy from high carbonation. Body is medium full. Overall a very pleasant and complex ale. Superb.

theisti (3504) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2010
Approx 12 oz draft pour at The Beer Bistro in Chicago, Illinois. Pour is a ruby golden, mostly clear with a one inch white head. Aroma of Belgian perfume spice clove yeastiness, along with some citrus hops. Taste is a nice blend of apricot citrus hops and the soft perfume clove Belgian yeast. Malt is around, but certainly in the background. Nice balance, clean taste. Palate is thin to medium, soft natural carbonation and a long yeasty aftertaste. Nice.

Flavor is upfront hops with a finish of grapefruit and orange juice, light pine sap, and a hint of red wood. Slippery on the tongue. Great beer.
