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.

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.

So we finally meet! This is the first beer out of Sound Brewery and I had a heck of a time finding it on tap as it was going fast. Beautiful frothy white head, dissipates quickly but clings to glass. Cloudy from the chill, apricot color, fruit, yeast, and sugars on the nose. Even cold the beer shows great balance, nice carbonation, and a hearty Belgian quality not often found on the Left Coast. Tasted @ 45, 50, & 60F.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear copper with a white smear for head. Aroma is biscuit/malt with a touch of yeast/spice and some mild light fruit. Med body. Tho it tends to thin. The flavor is fruit/yeast/spice (some peppery hot bits) and some sweet malt. Itís dry overall, and going towards astringent in the finish. Easy drinking? Wow, is it ever. Somehow itís not so Belgian as Belgian is, but itís a very tasty and drinkable ale.

brilliant copper kettle orange color with ivory sheen. Nice banana, honey, dry hay, earthy hop aromas. Light to medium body. Lightly dry banana chip, grainy pale malt, herbal, spicy yeast flavors--good belgian style.

brenn79 (1498) - Idaho, USA - APR 9, 2013
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.

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. Thereís a richer malty biscuit and cracker like flavor that pushes through this beer.

22 oz bomber courtesy of bvc. The pour is a lightly hazed orange copper with a one inch egg white head that falls with nice lacing. The aroma is herbal honey sweetness, grass, along with a light clove over-ripe fruit as well. The taste is big herbal right away, turning to the clove ester fruit yeast, and finishing with grassy toasty malt sweetness. Flavors are all pretty assertive, though do meld decently, creating a full, interesting flavor. The palate is medium bodied, spritzy fine natural carbonation and a bit of a thinner finish. Overall, interesting beer - thanks for sending my way Brandon.

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.
