3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rate. It is a light and citrusy pale ale. Not a huge bitterness or aroma. The hop is kinda meh.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, big thanks to Caleb! Clear orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of white fruit, slight watery grains, hints of lemon, slight yeast notes, touch of grass, eh. Taste is a mix of watery grain, biscuit, bread, very slight banana, clove, slight yeast, finishing watery, slightly dry, yeasty.

Bottle shared at Craft Ale House. Pours hazy dark golden with off-white head. Nose was pale malt, candi sugar, hopcitrus, mild funk. Tasted hopcitric and slightly funky up front, with more pale malt and florals late. Not terribly complex.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a short, dense white head. The aroma picked up sweet banana, cloves, and pine/sprucey hoppage over lightly-biscuity malt.. aromatic grasses and light tropical fruit accented.. interesting stuff. The flavor found soft pale and lesser bready malts at the core, with citrus and pine bitterness plus peppery yeast around.. finished with fresh, greener hops and banana and black pepper from the yeast. Lighter-bodied and fairly well carbonated on the palate.. balance was alright, but the hops were a little too assertive for the size of the beer.. refreshing in the end.. good sessionable drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, Minnesota. Pours a clear golden pale, light amber colored brew with an average-sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, a hint of honey, floral hops and a touch of ale yeast. Taste is light to medium bodied, average carbonation, with flavors of golden grain malt, a hint of caramel, some grassy and floral hops, some Belgian yeast and a touch of clove. Finish has a short light spicy hop aftertaste with some lingering Belgian yeast and clove aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep bronze reddish tinted brew with a light off white head. The nose is sweet and grainy with some pears. Notes of peanuts and toast are also present along with a fairly strong orange hint. This is fairly bitter with some orange peels and flowers. There is also some peanut character. Tasty with more bite thab expected. This is well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Tan -orange body, faint haze. Frothy white head. Relatively mild aroma, some distant, cool, crisp, grassy hops. A pretty decent beer, not really a straightforward Belgian Singel. Significantly more bitter and dry than a typical version. Lots of depth, the grainy dry hops balance out quite well with the fruity orange-banana yeast tones. Pretty solid offering all around, a lot of flavor for the low ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Summit brewery. When I saw "session" I thought it might be a mild, but it is actually a Belgian ale. Light gold color. Malt sweetness and a fair amount of hops for the style. Nice, smooth palate and it is definitely sessionable. Good.

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 havenít 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.
