COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination.

Purchased at Corks & Kegs in Richmond, VA; enjoyed at home on a warm mid May night. Appearance is a cloudy dark gold with a rich bubbly white head. Aroma is very light, clove and grape notes, also a bit of yeast. Taste is just ok, goes down crisp with spice notes, also primarily yeasty, I am tasting pears as well, light fruit notes. Again - just ok stuff.

I was surprised when I saw the overall rating of this beer. While my experience within Belgian pales is limited to a half-dozen-or-so beers, I found this ale to be very enjoyable. Pours a cloudy shade of tan that reminds me of an apple that has just begin to brown. Appropriate amount of head. Smells of grass and pear. Faint hints of cider with a slight hop bite in the finish. This beer is good enough to make me want to explore Belgian Pale Ale a little further. Bottle - Ale Yeah! - Decatur, GA
