3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On Tap at Hops and Props 2010. Pour was medium to light golden with a white fluffy head. Aroma was citrus and bitter with some esters of orange and some banana. Flavors were well blended and not too bitter, which allowed for the Belgian yeast character to pull through just slightly. Nice blend in the beer and an interesting flavor. Nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to whomever poured me a glass. It poured a deep gold body, somewhat hazy, with a smallish fizzy head. The aroma was honey sweet with light bready malts and a hint of tangerines. Light bodied. The flavor pretty well echoed the aroma except for a slight tart apple taste that jumped in midway. Not too bad.

Found this one bottled at the brewery in Plover, Wisconsin. Hazy, reddish brown pour with a medium, slowly dissipating whitish head. Light, sweet citrusy nose, strawberry, baked bread, and crystal malts with an alcoholic binder. Woody, grassy flavor with notes of apple cider, lime, cranberry, brandy, balanced with some grapefruit rind and rosy hoppiness. Strong finish. Interesting and very good.

[Bottle, thanks Skyview] Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is really strong, sweet apple--not too good. Taste is apple, malt and light oak in the finish. Medium-thin mouthfeel. I didn’t really care for this beer much.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Welcoming this new brewery in Central Wisconsin, I received an early tasting of their Belgian Pale Ale at the brewery in Plover, Wisconsin. Straight from the finishing tank, this ale pours a semi-hazy golden blonde brew with a creamy white head that has some good retention and lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, a touch of yeast and plenty of apple skin. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonated with flavors of tart apple skin, some light bready malt, a touch of grape brandy and some light glacier hop character. Finish has slightly tart apple character and has a good balance of tart and bitterness. Not your typical citrus-style hopped American Pale Ale, but the apple tartness does give this a Belgian style ale character.
