COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops and grains from the great Northwest, Belgian yeast and Idaho’s best water combine to make this smooth, dry Pale Ale. Excellent with a meal or simply on its own this delicious, crisp little crowd pleaser is a house favorite.

Big spicy bubblegum on the nose. Not much else. Golden pour not much in the way of head or lace. Flavors of bubblegum and spicy yeast. A little flabby carbonation wise. Not bad just one dimensional and boring. But drinkable.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden color with a two finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades moderately quickly leaving a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is largest of a more bready and doughty smell with some other aromas some sweet caramel and a little bit of a fruity smell of apple and pear. Some light spice of coriander and pepper as well as a hint of yeast are there as well. Taste – The taste begins with a rather bready and slightly sweeter taste (although not that too sweet) with the sweeter being mostly of a caramel nature, but containing some lighter fruity notes as well. As the flavor advances the fruity notes get slightly stronger while the bready and the caramel fade a little bit. A light spice flavor, some herbal and earthy hop flavors, and a spice flavor of a black pepper and coriander nature later come to the tongue, combining with a little bit of a yeasty taste. These flavors take the taste to the end, where they leave a bready and lightly sweetened malty taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side. A little bit higher carbonation may have made for a slightly more refreshing brew overall, but for the most part, the feel was pretty good. Overall – A decent Belgian pale ale, but nothing too exceptional. It’s worth a try, but not one I would frequent for the price of ~ $6 for a bottle.

Bottle, shared at the lake. Clear orange. Very estery with berry-fruit sweetness (but no balancing tartness) and a kiss of grassy hops in the finish. A bit too sweet for me.

hayduke (3505) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 4, 2014
Pours a cloudy copper color with an off-white head. Nose of banana, cloves, and stone fruit. Medium body. Flavor shows citrus and lots of the fruit. Really tasty and for sure a pale ale with a belgian twist. I like this.

Hazy bright amber color with small head. Light aroma of malt, biscuits, cane sugar. Lean mouthfeel, soft, caramel flavor, correct bitterness, and pleasant fruity esters.

Draft - Light banana notes with a bit of spice. Clear gold with a rich head. Lots of banana and spice with a touch of bitterness and a dry finish. Again yeast dominates entire profile.
