pours orange with a medium white head. Aroma is VERY fruity, kiwi, mango, maybe passion fruit, lots of fruit character. Taste took me by surprise? its a blast of fruit all the way, no hop bitterness or anything, full fruit slam. Very good brew.

Had this one on draft at the brewery in Cinci. A delicious Belgian pale ale, slight citrus aroma with a strong belgium malty tasting profile. A surprisingly great Belgian pale ale. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Draft at Pint Night at Jungle Jim’s-Eastgate. Pours a semi-hazy pale golden color with a small white head. Notes of lemon citrus, pineapple, stone fruit, bready and pale malts, mild spices, and just a bit of cookies and crackers. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts fruitier and sweeter and becomes drier. Nice hoppy Belgian.

On tap @ GABF. Golden pour with a white head. Big earthy hops up front. Melon, grapefruit, and orange. Some sweet pear, bread, and white pepper. A touch of grass and pine. Flavor has a light sweetness of bread, apple, and pear. Lots of hop aromas. Melon, grapefruit, and orange. White pepper, pine, and grass. Decent bitterness.

Draft at Rhinegeist. Pours a hazy yellow golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have a tart fruity character, yeast, mild spices, earthy, almost dusty on the nose, the combo of herbs and spices comes off as odd to me.

Draft hazy light yellow. Nose lawn clippings and lemon. Taste acidic fruit up front, then hint of Belgian ester and banana. Sweet mid palate with influence from the yeast. Spicy finish.

DrSilverworm (5025) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 30, 2013
On tap. Mildly hazy pale golden color. Thin white head. Good retention. Dots of lace, but they slowly slide back down into the head. Nice citrus and tropical fruit in the hop profile, some melon. Lighter belgian influence. Just a light bit of belgian yeast, light candy sugar -- hop is more prominent here. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Medium body. Lightly dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet, light spiciness. Solid Belgian extra pale ale, with an interesting, tasty hop profile.

b3shine (4438) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a slightly hazy gold with tbin white head. Smells odd for the style; gym socks. Tastes like it smells with a bit of hops. Not bad, but definitely not a BPA.

Tap sample. Poured hazy golden color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy citrus fruit and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture with soft carbonation. Moderate citrus bittersweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of medium duration. Very good brew.
