Pour is a hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is some dusty grain and a bit of yeasty esters. Flavor is more grain malt with a slight grassy hop with a chalky dry finish. Nothing great but decent for a sample.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden with a small-ish head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is nice, inviting enough with a huge doughy yeasty character and a nice earthy floral bit as well. The beer is lightly sweet smelling with some spice and very mild fruit.
The flavor is really very nice, floral and fairly dry with a nice dusty and toasty malt character. The hop character is a touch herbaceous but more floral than anything, the hops give this one a really pleasant bitterness that lingers a bit in the finish. Some mild lemon peel & doughy yeastiness are pretty in check here as well.
Pretty well done, decidedly akin to Belgian session ales while bringing some new but complimentary things to the table.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden orange with a modest sized soapy white head. The aroma has fruity Belgian yeast, spicy / earthy hops, fall leaves and a bit of malt sweetness. Medium / light body that still has some slickness to it, but turns more crisp and biting on the finish with lots of carbonation. The flavor begins with the aspects I like about Belgian singles I haven’t tasted in a while - dry caramel, earthy (with light fruit) yeast and light crackers. This one has a a bit of spicy / floral hops as well. The hops comes out a bit more with the finish. Cleaner and crisper than most Belgian ales. Really tasty beer & with the lower alcohol this could be a real nice one to have around.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewery. Lager aroma. Crystal clear like a lager.excellent lace. Explained as a session IPA with Belgian yeast. Tastes like a lager but has a moderate hop finish. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours hazy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is like a weak banana smoothie at first, but barley and something strange quickly show up. With swirling, very weak notes of sulfur and some crushed nettles show up. The taste is malt heavy and fairly bland. Moderate bitterness, Good mouthfeel. Finish length is average. This isn’t a bad beer...just really forgettable and not my thing.
