As far as Belgians go I really enjoy this beer. Probably because it’s not too belgian... It has the Belgian yeast flavor but it doesn’t overpower the rest of the beer like a lot of Belgians ales do.
Yup another great beer camp beer.

Pretty good. Although it isn’t too flavorful. It’s kinda bitter and tastes like a Belgian blonde ale. One of the best aromas from the beer camp series.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at Beer Camp 2014 @ Navy Pier (Chicago, IL). Pours a pale golden yellow hue, nice haziness with frothy creamy white head atop. Larger stickaround and lacing atop. Aromas are a bit bitter, some gentle clove and earth meet some pear juice, touches of bitter hops, some gentle yeastiness. Cleaner, fresh and a bit spritzy. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, some gentle clove and yeastiness meet cleaner bready and straw malt. A nice hop profile is citrusy lemon, pear esters are gentle. Earthy, some florals and spice into the backend. More gentle overall, less spice and girth that makes this pretty crushable. Flows really well. Nuanced, enjoyable.

Interestingly disappointing in regards to the stylistic improvisations that these two breweries took. The belgian nature of the beer feels eviscerated, with sharper, more floral notes of the hops bucking heads. Not a fantastic combination.

Bottle from the mix pack. Pours a mostly clear golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a little yeasty with a fair amount of clove in there, and just screams Belgian. Taste is a little sweet and seems to have a lot of grain elements to it, and just doesn’t strike me as all that interesting. Meh.

Pours very light in color from tap and smells of coriander to me. Tastes a bit spicy and crisp. Great for the warmer weather.

Piss blonde. Holds a tiny white ring head. Aroma is fruity as hell, yes, hell is fruity, and full of bubblegum like a weisse weizen wheat beer. Hahahhah. Tastes like straight up Fleer double bubble. Pretty horrible for a beer but a great starter to get kids addicted with all that sugary sweetness familiar to the American palate.

Pours a clear golden with white head. Hay, cereal, and yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little floral note.

Bottle from Beer Camp Across America pack into tulip glass, hazy golden color with faint amber hue and white head. Aroma of peppery yeast, candy sugar, clove, grain and citrus. Taste adds notes of lemon, mineral, grass, faint spices and somewhat herbal. Medium-light body, low-moderate carbonation, crisp, dry with some spicy/hop bitter finish. Good Belgian Ale.
