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!

Bottle, part of a sampler pack. Had a little bit of the Belgian yeast flavor, slightly sweet, almost sugary at times. Kinda one dimensional with the sweet flavor, not much in it otherwise. Decent but not great.

Maxbier (256) - Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Sour taste is overpowering from start to finish. Other flavors are hard to detect past the ultra sour flavor, there is yeast, wheat, white bread, some hops bitterness at the end. This beer is not for me.

thechandler (577) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Pours a bubbly blonde with a foamy white head. Aroma is banana and bubblegum. Very nice on the nose. Flavor isn’t quite as robust as the aroma. Taste is like a German hefe that has been over hopped. Not bad, but this could have been better.

Nothing special here. It's light, but has just enough going on to tell its not mass market crap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
