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

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.

ContemplateBeer (1776) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 10, 2015
12 oz. can from Old Town. Aroma: Salted lime; honey dew melon; light Sauv Blanc with maybe a hint of cereal. Appearance: Pours a pale gold with average carbonation propping up a foamy white head; the head settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Straight up salted lime at first; with just a little melon; white wine notes become more noticeable towards the finish; which dries out well and is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Wonderful beer; not really sure why they want to call this a Belgian Ale; as others have said, it’s more like an APA/IPA if anything.

Pours very light pale gold with white head. Light body. I really like this style. Initial citrus sweet ness with other fruit sweetness. A good amount of yeast and malt flavor. Slight bitterness to finish with more sweetness.

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.

phaleslu (7600) - 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.

Draught at LB. Very nice and lightly hopped beer - not really Belgian. But those Nelson Sauvin shine.
