COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It is a Belgian-style Pale Ale with an American twist. It is brewed with pale, caramel, and wheat malts, and hopped with centennial and Cascade hops to give it a distinctly American character. The medium bodied beer has a crisp palate and moderate bitterness coupled with the fruity esters from the abbey yeast strain. It is bottle and keg conditioned so expect a tall fluffy head and a small amount of sediment. Recipe by brewer, Jeff Musselman.

halfonit (1209) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a clear golden/amber color with a quickly dissapating thick white head. Aroma is of esters, yeast, clove, slight malt, and slight grain. Medium bodied. Flavor is of malts, hops, slight yeast and clove, with a hint of grapefruit. Leaves a yeast and hop finish. It’s surprising how it smells like a Belgian, yet tastes like an American Pale Ale. Good job.

Overall not a bad beer, but nothing out of the ordinary. Color in was nice and formed a nice head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone Suckas! :-)

harrymel (1539) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Unknown bottle date. Poured to NB globe. A: Pours a hazy amber ale with a persistent, peanut colored, three finger head. The residue sticks to the glass - tacky. Good looker. S: Yeasty nose. Grain, simple earthy hops. Hints of tea. Maybe a hint of banana. Very simple and straitforward. T: Very metallic. Bitter with charred grain flavors. M: Medium body with very high carbonation. Leaves little reminiscence of its presence. D: Forgettable. Worth a try. Nice as an extra. Serving type: bottle 02-15-2011

Crisp and pale, but still a harsh bitterness. A bit sweet on the palate, but an aggressive beer overall.

Jayb0 (1077) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - NOV 15, 2013
Bottle. poured almost like apple juice/cider, same color and with the same sort of bubbly unattractive and quickly dissipating head. But other than that, very good, very bready in the nose and estery. The hopping is good. At colder temps slightly harsh/metallic but smooths out as it warms up. Fruity and well rounded.
