COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Saranac Belgian Style Pale Ale is made with 2-raw barley and traditional european malts. Brewed with a perfect balance of malt and hops, this is a "sessionable" Belgian style ale. Look for a light amber color and a distinctive fruitiness from the Belgian yeast used in fermentation. Consumed by Belgians as an "everyday" beer, this style will quickly become your winter go-to!

12 oz bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have light Belgian yeast, mild spice, somefrui ty character, grass. Much like the others, it is not bad, just forgettable.

Bricks (581) - Delaware, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Appearance is similar to that of a domestic macro. Aroma wreaks of wheat and dryness, with a hint of citrus. Taste is very clean, only a little bitter... sweet and dry, all at the same time.

DCLawyer (1358) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle->Trappist. Clear gold with moderate white head. Has all the expected Belgian components: yeast, spice, banana, clove, grains. But muddy and contrived. Not good.

Simple Belgian pale ale. Not a great deal of flavor or aroma. Very basic beer.

Mep3222 (396) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Has some Belgian yeast aromas and flavors. Some banana nutty flavors and aroma. A bit watery on the palate, but a nice beer for saranac. But of an odd bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nephilium (1311) - Ohio, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Some fruity yeast esters and hop aroma, pours a clear light amber, with a thin white head. Straw hop notes, with a dry finish. Light in body, with just a touch of the promised Belgian notes. Not a bad session ale.

cheap (3942) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2013
From a bottle this is pale yellah, not like a wit beer. Now I see its simply Belgian pale ale, not white beer. Thin head. Sweet aroma. Decent watery Belgian creamy thing. Yes, good creamy co2. Fairly mild and easy going, enjoyable. Easy to take and rather friendly. Aroma is mildly sweet and perfumy, good overall beer experience.

Bottled from BevMo. Medium/light golden in color. Nose is fairly grainy with a bit of a banana/clove yeast aroma. Grainy up front with a some hops popping up. A little yeast and spice as well.
