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.

750 c&c from Monument in Concord, CA. Pours hazy orange gold with a good foamy off-white head. Rich fruity aroma with a touch of spice. Medium body with harsh, foamy carbonation. Flavor is a rush of fruit, then something spice, then quite bitter. It all goes pretty fast. Very good beer.

carboloader (674) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Pours hazy orange with tall white soapy head. Beautiful in the glass! Picture perfect. Aroma is fruity esters and citrus. Light, creamy mouth feel with crisp carbonation bite. Orange peel and some spices. Alcohol is masked by smooth slightly bitter finish. Delicious...a great way to end a summer evening on the patio. Looks as beautiful as it tastes.

Dorwart (2412) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Good sized frothy white head of fine bubbles. Light carbonation. Very aromatic with lots of oranges, spices (cinnamon), yeast and some grains. Color is a very hazy dark orange. Zippy mouthfeel with some oranges and lemons backed by some dry spices. More cinnamon and nutmeg along with some floral hops. A tad of sourness also after a couple of sips. Slightly dry and puckering. Definate belgian qualities to the yeastyness and distinct bitterness from the hops. A decent Belgian ale.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Tap at Sugar Maple. Pours to a glowing amber body with a dense white head that dissipated rather quickly. Aroma is bitter grass and basements. Flavor if dry grass, papaya, apricots, and Belgian yeast. Palate is silken and mouthwatering.

JulienHuxley (3889) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle thanks to Fred. Aroma of belgian yeast citrusy hops; mango, pinneaple and grass. Nice belgian twist added to it. Flavor is a mix of fresh hops, belgium yeast and bready malts with a somewhat dry finish. You can feel the alcohol but this isn’t a bad thing in this case. Medium/full body for the style with lively carbonation. This is a very enjoyable hoppy belgian ale that I would drink on a regular basis if I had the chance, especially in the summer.

eaglefan538 (2918) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 15, 2010
Bottle from SL. Pour was straw colored, big huge pillowy white head, solid lacing. The aroma was bready yeast, some lighter fruits, citrus. The flavor was much the same, phenolic spiciness, some pears and pineapple-ish character in there too, hops present but could have been fuller. Mouthfeel was a little too sticky (more like a BSA) vs. dry and clean on the finish.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, mango, herbs, grass, and citrus. Flavor of grass, pineapple, citrus, herbs, yeast, earth, and florals with a soft mouthfeel and dry, crisp bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2012 Really a moderately hopped belgian ale. Very tasty...slightly sweet, slightly hoppy, light body. Hoppy finish. Refreshing and simple.
