glennmastrange (2940) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Bottle. Light to moderate grain for the malt, orange for the hops, faint dough for the yeast, with a hint of cinnamon. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, white with some slippery lacing and is almost fully diminshing. Color is sparkling clear reddish amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and finishes lightly acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a fizzy carbonation. A very drinkable beer, but bland as a Belgian Ale. alesales (10) - Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Pours a hazy amber color. The nose is floral with sweetness and sour, over-rippen fruit notes. Slightly tart, sour apple, over-rippen peach apricot taste. Thin and weak on the palate. Sessionable, but not desirable. No complexity and definitely not a belgian pale ale. Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy amber color with a small head of large, loose bubbles. The head fades very quickly. The nose is lightly floral with a good bit of sweetness and bubble gum to it. Slightly tart in a sweet tart sort of way with a good bit of sour apple. Lots of esters in this one. Watery and thin on the palate. While not undrinkable, it lacks character and complexity. Not the best interpretation of the style. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle. Deep amber color, clear, tall off white head. Nice belgian sweetness balanced with subtle hoppiness. Not as strong flavored as done, but enjoyable overall. bubbleflubber (2244) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2013
On tap at Barley's Taproom in Asheville, this pours orange-amber into the glass with a wispy head that leaves webbed lace. The nose is of yeasty esters and grains. Flavors are very grain-like, with esters and melon. The finish is fruity. Light and active body, the mouthfeel is a touch on the thin side, but for a BPA, it's well put-together and easy to drink, just not the most complex offering out there. Enjoyable session brew.

Draft at the growler NYC. Pours a bronze dark color with a heavy look although the taste is quite light and farmhouse like. Kind if boring

Bottle. Pours light Orange with white head. Smellsfruity, earthy. Tastes lightly spicy, doughy, fizzy. Finishes fast. Okay. Not too great. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - AUG 25, 2013
The aroma is subtle - fruit qualities detected. A clear amber pour with a thin white head which quickly turns into a ring with no lacing. The taste is lightly sweet. White fruit, with hints of citrus, cardboard, grape skins, sugared candy and barnyard. Medium-light viscosity and crisp carbonation. Overall, great name, great label, but a less-than-great beer. Lots going on but for me, it just didn’t come together. Itzjerm (3175) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Pretty boring beer light Esther on the nose. Not much flavor slight Belgian yeast. Watery with thick mouthfeel. Which is odd. No karma with me. No head either.

12oz bottle - pours clear pale amber with offwhite head and thin lacing. Nose is belgian sugar and candy. Flavor adds watermelon, caramel and toast. Flat. Worst beer from Avery I’ve ever had, so far. sweet and faintly bitter by comparison. Reminds me more of a bock than a belgian. disappointed.
