Clear golden pour with a white head. Nose is earthy, floral and a bit bready. Taste is similar with heavy emphasis on the floral component with just a hint of black pepper and a really unpleasant finish. Not very good.

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.
