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.

First beer from Sound Brewery, Pours a dark orange color. Aroma is just slightly fruity. Taste is crisp with some vanilla notes to it. Has a bit of wheat in the back as well. And one of the prettiest labels around too boot.

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.

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.

Draft at Naked City. Pours a deep darker lightly clouded golden with a even tight white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Good amount of bubble gum esters with strong amount of banana. Sweet hay and wheat as well very light clove and some white pepper. Quick sweetness up front, moves into a somewhat green banana flavor then a sweat sock spent grain flavor. Finishes on the dry side, but the graininess lingers.

I’m 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.

Bomber. Pale copper colored in appearance with a half-inch of sudsy foam. Aroma is predominately toasted malt notes and toffee with some grassy hops at the end. The flavor has more of a Belgian yeast influence that blends bready malts, caramel and clove with a bit of tart fruit and earthy hops in the background. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and adequately carbonated with a mildly creamy texture and dry, spicy finish. Pretty decent BPA that makes for a nice change of pace from the hoppy Pale Ales that dominate the Pacific Northwest.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Pours a reddish-copper with minimal off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, ripe banana, and mild, spicy hops. Flavor is more biscuit, with a little bit of banana and spice, and a nice, dry finish. Strikes a nice balance between being flavorful and refreshing.

On tap at the Brave Horse Tavern. Pours a light copper, a little hazy and with little to no head. Fruity esthers dominate the aroma with distinctive notes of apple and pear coming to the forefront. Tastes is slightly sweet in the beginning and finishes very dry and somewhat tart. There’s a richer malty biscuit and cracker like flavor that pushes through this beer.
