ADesenberg (581) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft at the Jungle Jims tasting bar: Pours a nice light golden orange with a bright white head. Aromas are nice and fruity... citrus. Taste is pretty sweet, but balanced with the bitter citrus bite...good. Itís a bit more watery than I would hope for...but like I said... good.

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 (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Draft at Pint Night at Jungle Jimís-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.

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.

drsordr (1040) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2013
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 (6278) - 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.
