3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Review 06.29.11.
A: Pours a thick head with a bubbly texture on the outside and foamy on top with a slightly dirty white color. The body is a glowing very dark orange / reddish tint of brown. Overall the body reminds me of swimming in a murky lake. Carbonation looks excellent.
S: Very distinct clean Belgian aroma, with citrus notes, heavy spice, slight undertones of ginger.
T: Very complex taste, yet well balanced. Not over the top spicy which can be a huge turn off for my taste buds. Not extremely light for a pale ale either, has a good body to it. Lingering taste is almost soapy.
M: Bubbly on the lips then switches to a clean finish of yeasty spice. Lingers of herbal spiciness of something you would find in the woods. Slightly bitter on center of pallet, more bubbly on the outskirts than bitter.
O: Verboten is spot on for the style with an above average flavor. Would recommend to an avid Belgian beer drinker. Easy to drink, but want to savor to let palate take it all in.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer has a decent appearance with a nice hazy orange color, the beer has a nice white head, some lacing on the glass, and is well carbonated. The smell is okay, you get a mild sweet smell from the belgian side but that’s about it. The taste is okay too, you get the spices from the belgian side and a mild citrus from the hops but it is very mild. The mouthfeel leaves you a little bitter and an aftertaste from the yeast. Overall, an okay beer but a weak offering from a good brewer. It left me a little disappointed because I was expecting more.

An enjoyable Belgian pale ale from an unexpected source in east coast Pennsylvania. A moderate, not overwhelming sour/bitter aroma and taste. attractive appearance with solid head and lacing. Relatively clean finish for a Belgian pale. Hoppy notes are intriguingly refreshing.

Poured a hazy orange-brown color with no head.
Aroma is very fruity with yeast notes. Some sweet malts. Taste is sweet with banana and oranges. Slightly floral notes. The finish is surprisingly hoppy, which helps to balance out the sweetness. Overall nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy caramel with a decent but fleeting head and a bit of chunky sediment. While I don’t mind sediment, I prefer it to be a finer texture. Standard Belgian yeasty aroma. Nicely balanced flavor. The hops are a nice addition and keep it from being overly yeasty or even metallic like some Belgians can be. Good and refreshing, but not outstanding.

3/26/13 last beer of the night @the world cafe seeing josh rouse. Probably the best beer I had outside dreamweaver. Belgian like in cloudiness and taste. Little tart like sour apple at the end
