3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l - Too often I find when a brewer steps out of its comfort zone it clings too much to the basic style. This ale combines the sour, yeasty notes with the malty, floral, hoppy character of a Pale Ale without being one more than the other. This was truly a blend of two styles.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep cloudy orange with a solid, slightly pillowy small bubbled head. Nose of leather, lemon, light phenols, some spice, citrus hops. Flavor is nicely dry hopped, lemon peel, toasted malts, light bread. Body feels a little heavy for style. I would drink this again, but wish the flavor was as lively as the nose.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. I’m not so sure about the citrus and tropical fruit stuff. It seemed like straight noble to me. If someone had told me this was from Belgium I would have believe it without doubt. Not super hoppy but really in a great balance, plenty of banana all the way around. Would love to have this one draft.

It pours a mostly transparent amber, just a touch of haze, with lots of fine sediment and a half inch off-white head with decent retention. The flavor with pineapple and a some light lemon. There is some faint banana in the background. The finish is light-moderate citrus and floral hops, pepper, and light acidity. Light-medium bodied with lively, but mostly soft, carbonation.
