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.

Drought. Reddish amber color beige foamy head, doughy aroma, average carbonation, slightly bitter abrupt finish. Good but not spectacular.

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

Nuffield (3836) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - APR 8, 2013
I had this with lamb steak and there was a good structure to the flavor and sufficient support to the body. Good white head, more hop notes (a relatively hoppy brewery compared to others on the East Coast?). (on tap at the Centennial Inn, Concord, NH)

bottle. hazy gold with a large white foamy head. pear hop aroma. a well balanced beer with light fruity hop notes without a syrupy texture and moderately sweet base malt with a touch of breadiness. light to medium body. good beers from white birch. this one is my favorite so far.

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pear, peach, and mild green grapefruit. Flavor is about what you would expect from that, a cool, mellow sweetness. Opaque orange appearance. Zesty start, smooth all the way through. Expecting better, but will give the brewer another shot.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - MAR 4, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 I thought this beer was enjoyable enough. Nose of Belgian yeast, grapefruit and pine. Flavors followed but the finish detracted from the otherwise tasty beer. Leave a bit of a wet grass after taste. Still drinkable

Suttree (5548) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bottled in December 2012, consumed in February 2013. Murky brownish gold in the glass, with a nice white head. Aroma is juicy, grape, yeasty, with yeasty notes. Some woody notes, too. Flavor is almost overwhelmingly bitter - kind of a medicinal bitterness, actually. As it warms, though, the bitterness fades a bit and apple and pear emerges, as well as some yeasty banana. I guess the lesson here id Do Not Serve Too Cold. Thanks to Phatdog1 for the trade!

VALIS (229) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 Faint smell of malt, candy fruit. Sweet malty taste, not like many Belgian Ales I’ve had but it’s not bad. Goes down easily, but gassy aftertaste. Decent food/session beer. Had it twice now, slightly disappointed both times. Wouldn’t try it again.

Lukaduke (2689) - Gray, Maine, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a murky sienna color with a trace of bubbles. The nose is citrus a lil belgian candy and spicy yeast... the palate is a bit unfocused with two layers never really coming together... some fruity pear and grassy hops help it along the way but the mouthfeel is thin and the flavors stale.
