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.

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.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2013
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Yeasty aroma of dried orange and banana peels. Thick looking orange to tan color. Fruity and sweet, has banana elements of a hefe, but taste is stronger than most wheat beers. In fact, on the whole, this thing feels stronger than it is. Slick, mid range body, not so much crisp as sharp. Weyeyrcher doesn’t do bad stuff, so the bar was to high for this one.

suprchunk (2345) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Hazy amber colored pour. Small white head. Not much lacing, but it is there. Typical plastic-y yeast aroma that most Belgians usually have. Malt and flowers. Taste is much the same, but with the floral taste being more prominent. Not bad.

dpjuart (1088) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle from Logan Twp Giant Eagle. Pours orange with red hues, a two finger head that dissipates to a film relatively quickly. Super Bubble bubble gum dominates the nose, with grass clippings and thyme, lemon and coriander. The nose had potential, but the flavor is lacking. Watery beginning with a dry, astringent hop bitterness ending and after, some herbal qualities, cilantro and parsley, pepper and lemon. Not bad. Not a stand out.

TheHOFF43 (1759) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2013
Bottle. No idea on appearance due to power outage. Aroma is some belgian yeast and hops, flavor is more belgiany than anything, decent banana and yeast flavor with a bit of bitter hops at the end.
