COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian Style Pale Ale: Soft Biscuity malts and fruity esters are well balanced with the finest Slovenian Styrian Goldings hops, making for a refreshing, easy drinking copper colored ale. In a goblet or pint, spend some time appreciating the aroma before you take that first sip. Admire the creamy head that forms, then indulge yourself in a continental pale ale previously only served this fresh on draft in Belgium.

Taster from Bomber at the Hanshin Seed Event. Belgian pale ale, crackery malts, slight tart/sour and almost a perfumery floral quality to it - interesting. The taste is a bit rough giving me mostly graininess, then a fruity tang and some breadiness. For me a miss.

Iím intrigued by this beer, and after having it, satisfied. It truly lives up to its name -- a Belgian style PA. The base PA is all there, and quite solid. But the Belgian yeast comes in at the beginning, and establishes this brew as unique. Think of what you would expect from a "Belgian style PA," and there it is. PA -- not the most innovative style. Add some Belgian yeast -- there you go, intrigue. Well executed. Recommended.

This one was... meh. Rather disappointing as I've enjoyed some of Sound's other brews. This one was just extremely boring.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty golden, a bit hazy, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Bready nose, slight grain, even a touch of blackened banana.   Seems somewhat yeasty on the tongue, somewhat like an American Tripel, but its also has some graininess and a smidgen of ashtray to it.   Breadiness doesnít linger long.   A bit of wet straw like grassiness brings up the backside.   I was hoping this one would be a little light, fluffy, a bit bright, but its heavier, yeastier, and more bready than I care for.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Coats the tongue well.   Lingering grassiness after the finish.   Light sweetness as well.   Its okay, but not one I would reach for again.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Earthy yeast, muddled sugars and fruity esters swim within this amateurish brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy dark beige.
-Carbonation was very low, which doesnít make sense at all for this type of brew. But perhaps this was the barís fault?
-The yeasty omnipresence neared astringence at times.
-The entire flavor profile was not well defined.
-The sugary flavors were a bit caramelized, a bit honeyed.

On tap at Devil Craft, Tokyo.

Hazy golden amber color. Very estery, mildly fruity. Med body very Belgian estry. Simple Belgian pale ale.

22 oz. bottle- Pour hazy orange with a head that reduces to a collar of big bubbly foam. Aroma is kind of basic, spicy hops, maybe some yeast. The taste is much more Belgian, yeasty and banana esters, it tastes like a Belgian golden ale, not bad.

Hanuta06 (327) - Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Serving: from bottle--purchased at Sound Brewery. Aroma: lightly floral and citrusy. Appearance: small, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, orange body. Taste: lightly sweet and citrusy initial flavor and lightly acidic/sour grapefruit-like finish with average duration. Palate: light body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: excellent. Exceptional taste. Easy to drink and refreshing.

jgb9348 (4735) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Crisp copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, bread, pepper, bubble gum and a hint of curacao. Light-bodied; Pungent yeast flavour up front with a definite belgie characteristic, some lighter malt notes, a hint of earthy hops and a little toffee sweetness. Aftertaste shows mainly malt flavours with a hint of earth, some very light sugars and at the tail end - a little of the complex belgian yeast strain, but not enough to rescue the beer. Overall, a below par offering with some good thoughts, just not well executed. Still, nice to sample this beer that Iíd never find on the East Coast, but wish I would have packed something better in my bag across the country. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Pear Delicatessen in Seattle, Washington on 11-February-2013 for US$3.83 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 21-March-2013.

bottle. amber with small head. had high hopes for this one and was quite underwhelmed. hops are lacking and not very flavorful. minimal belgian spice.
