This Belgian style pale ale is particularly great on the hottest summer day with enough hop character and body to stand up to old man winter. Light in color it has crisp taste with fruit notes from banana to pear with a touch of citrus. We hope you will enjoy ordering it as much as drinking it.

ordybill (1313) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is hazy golden yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is of yeast and a hint of banana. The taste is slightly sweet with plenty of malt and fruit with a cocoa and yeast blend at the end. Overall, a good beer and a nice representation of a Belgian Pale Ale.

on tap @ Railhouse Brewing / Roanoke VA --- Clear light amber with a white rim head, thin stripes of lace. Taste is wheat and malt with light spices, notable coriander, which becomes fizzy and very lightly hoppy on the swallow. Just another basic brew - nothing wrong here, but also nothing that makes it stand out.

BrettTaylor (738) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Pours a cloudy gold color, almost no head, mild malt aroma, some banana. Tastes - sweet initially w/ fruit notes (pear, banana, grape), then gets some funk and almost a little dill and some citrus on finish. Crisp finish and would go great w/ a sandwich w/ pickles or vinegar.

Darwenus (889) - Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Cloudy, golden body with a head that leaves in a hurry. The aroma is mild. A little bit of spice, a little bit of an herbal/fruit kind of thing, too. The flavor is pretty mild. There’s a bit of citrus and hops, and the malt is buttery, but the finish is very watery and not very full. Not bad, but not something I’ll get again.

Served on draft at the Top of the Hops Beer Festival. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin frothy head. Decent head retention. Aroma of herbal hops, pale grainy malts, honey and an almost vegetal note. The taste is sweet fruits, herbal hops, honey and pale malts. Medium bodied.
