Using a special yeast strain of Belgian origin, we sought to emulate one of the few hoppy Belgian Trappist ales. This delicious orange hued ale has a complex flavor derived from the yeast and Isle of Que vine dried hops.

On tap at the brewpub. Reviewed from notes. Pours a moderate golden color with a nice white head. The nose brings some yeast, earthy characteristics, light citrus, spice, and pepper. The taste is light with some grain as well as a bit of earth and nice spicing. Mouthfeel is light and fairly crisp; quite nice. Drinks very well and is a nice American version of the style.

On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/08: Pours a transparent amber golden with a frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet biscuity malts with a touch of light fruity esters and some mild grassy hops. Body starts fairly full and sweet with some nice toasty bready malts and Belgian yeast balance. Smooth and fairly authentic, but not as hoppy as I’d expected.

Growler . Pours a hazy golden color with an off-white head. Aroma of yeast, grass and earthy hops. Flavor was sweet malts, citrus, yeast and had notes of fruit with a dry and bitter finish.

Growler from kramer. Thanks Jason! Pours a layered golden amber with a small white head and a little lace. Nose is fruit, yeast, dough and light hops.Smalls much nicer after is has some time to breathe and warm up. Flavor is more fruit, a solid yeast presence throughout, some light hops. Finish is relatively dry with a bit of caramel sweetness and citrus. Very nice, easy drinking brew. Wish I had local access to this brewery.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Poured a cloudy gold in color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, fruity esters with some floral hops. Taste is fairly sweet. Flavors of citrus, fruity esters, floral and citrus hops, bread, and slightly spiced. As with all Selins grove brews, very nice body and very drinkable.

Draft @ Selins Grove. Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden-copper color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Not overly hoppy in the aroma: some citrus and lime present, zesty, with some toastiness, crackers, and bread underneath. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy Belgian sugars, sweet maltiness (a basic Belgian golden ale underneath) with a thin perimeter of mineral bitterness; touches of citrus, but as fleeting as in the aroma. Medium finish: breadiness, candy sugar, and some light citrus and minerals.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma grazes in some slightly fruity esters and a bit of grassiness. Pours a hazed gold, with a rim in white. Flavor is good, but it’s quiet. There’s a touch of almond-sweetness and pale yellow fruits, joined with a kiss of minty hops. However, the amount of hops didn’t live up to my expectations. The body is exquisite. Dry, crisp, balanced and heavily drinkable. A nice beer in that regard, but the flavor depth and intensity could be more. Otherwise a nice beer.

Not quite the beer that I was expecting. aroma was bready with some brett lingering in slightly, spicy, but not briallant and try tasting like an Orval. rich and malty flavor with some pepper and allspice. medium bodied. a good brew nonetheless.

Couretsy kramer17801!!! Color is a warm orange, touch of brown around the edges. Aroma is yeasty and doughy, with nuances of hops, nutmeg, allspice. Flavor is very spicy and fruity, which I found odd, but the hops really shine brightly. Very nice beer, the hops really keeps this exciting.
