COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Original Sweet Action recipe from 2005. Similar to a Belgian Pale Ale, this offering deviates from the norm with generous Pacific Northwest hop additions. Also, look for orange peel in the nose and on the palate towards the finish.

Another very exciting beer from Sixpoint, on tap at Rattle n Hum. There is a fresh aroma of lemon and coconut oil. Looks like an unfiltered hefe. I thought I tasted wheat malt, citrus, and other grains. There is plenty of hops and malt also. A rich and complex brew.

Growler. Aroma of sweet peaches sweet melon, sweet oranges, maybe tangerines, none at all sugary, just pleasantly sweet, tickles of spices, nice stuff. Flavor the same with all those peaches, whole oranges, light spice notes remain, not sure if they’re from hops or actual spices. Nothing overwhelming, but I do like it a lot....Er, incorrect, the more I drink it, the more I realize that some of these fruits seem to come from a wonderful tropical fruit hop presence. There’s just little to no bitterness, and zero astringency, all hoppy goodness. Great fake-hurricane brew.

Growler. Pours a cloudy orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of sweet melon rind, light spices (clove). Flavor is very similar, nice spices and light fruitiness, some orange peel. Slight hoppy bitterness, but mostly just lots of sweet tropical/light fruits. Very flavorful, well balanced, and quaffable.

Growler from Whole Foods. Deep golden colour, fairly hazy with a fast-fading white head. The aroma is lightly spicy and fruity. A bit of bubble gum aroma, rich spiciness, some light mintiness as well. Flavour is quite nice. Sweet Belgian malt aroma with a softly spicy yeastiness. Fruity with notes of peach, apple and pear. Lots of clove as well, but no banana at all. Good balance with a soft minerally bitterness toward the back. Herbal and minty hoppiness on the back. As it warms it even gets a little bit tropical. This is pretty nice stuff.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Tap at Barcade: (Sixpoint’s 4th Anniversery Party) Hazy light golden with a sporadic white head. Nice aroma of soft honey notes, dry Belgian phenols, light chalkiness, touch of herbal suggestions as well.Crisp and lively mouthfeel. Has a soft sweetness throughout the flavor- touch honeyish along with a dry mildly spicy Belgian phenol, peppery vegetal, and some flowery bitterness from what seems like a noble hop variety. Very solid profile and easy to session.

(Draught) Pours a hazy golden body with a small off-white head. Aroma of pineapple, coconut, toasted grain, tangerine, orange peel, and Belgian yeast. Flavor of banana, pineapple, apple, yeast, and clove.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
RnH: nice Belgian. The nose carries the bright citrus tones one would expect. The beer is highly carbonated, which washes away the bitters well. Nice brew.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2009
Tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Nice pour, good lacing, solid goldish color. Aroma is light, sweet, salty grapefruit, tangerine. The flavor has a mild bite, citrus sweetness but with little citric acid. Decent body. I didn’t know this was supposed to be Belgian going in and has no idea in tasting that it was at all. Tasted completely like an APA.
