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.

Hazy amber pour. Nose of yeast spice and fruit esters with bitter pine and a weird smoke-like aspect. Flavor is fruity malt, Belgian candy, deep toasted malt, biscuit, and finishes with a deep, dry, pine bitterness. Lingering pine and fruit. Okay but a tad odd.

beerbrains (26) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Aroma: a mixture of hay malt with a slight underlying floral Appearance: amber, hazy, white foam, frothy head Taste: Odd mixture of medium sweetness with a salty finish Palate: thin feel, medium body, lightly bitter, long finish Overall: a pale ale that is an odd mixture of malt and hops. The hop taste really comes out at the finish, lasts long, and gets a little salty

halfonit (1257) - 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 (1551) - 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
