COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The concept for our Single-Take Session Ale is this: a moderate gravity (11.7 P) Belgian-yeast fermented ale that enjoys lots of hop-flavor and hop-aroma character without exhibiting much hop-bitterness (only 20 IBUs). We want Single-Take to deliver a complex yet balanced flavor explosion that is bright and sprite and never fatiguing. A deft grist combination of floor-malted barley (Maris Otter and Bohemian Pilsner), wheat and rye provide the perfect stage upon which our whole hop actors (German Tettnanger, Czech Saaz, American Santiam and Amarillo) get to sparkle. Our Belgian yeast strain holds the entire flavor performance together with its firm, spicy and tart directorial oversight.

Golden straw, off-white head. Nose is malt, fruity notes, minerals. Flavor is slight bubblegum, malt, slight sweetness, citric notes, mild hops in the finish. Very drinkable. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

willisread (3349) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2015 Re-rate at Naka-meguro Taproom: More Belgian saison-like notes on the nose with some fruit, banana, lemon zest and pepper. Not much citrus, very saison like in a way. Solid and enjoyable. On tap at Nakameguro Taproom. Served in a half pint shaker. Straw-colored with a modest white head. Strong Leon, lime aroma with pine needle/resin undertones. Medium body with a nice crisp dry finish. A really good session ale.

3.5
RexTalionis (3763) - FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle. Slightly unclear dark orange in color with a whitish head. Bit of funky bready and lemony notes in aroma. Feels quite fresh. Grassy, slighlty yeasty spicy and biscuity feeling in taste. Bit light, but has that nice spicy kick in the end.

Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, white head, stays. Mild herbal, pine needles, spicy orange peel in aroma. Pine, malty, bit grainy, citrus taste. Mild bitterness. Fruity citrusy mouthfeel.

2.8
FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2015
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Spicy zingy zesty aroma, orange, but has a belgian twang. Pretty watery palate, blandish taste, some bread and butter, maybe some marmalade hint from the zestiness. Finish has some bitterness as well as the citrussy aromatics, but deep down it’s a bit boring. Perfectly drinkable watery golden ale, the belgian twist was nice.

3.4
GenDV138 (7284) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 22, 2014
140 ml glass on draft at Baird’s Harajuku Taproom. Hazy yellowish orange with off-white head. Aromas of citrus peel, lemon lime, citrus, light floral notes. Tastes of citrus, lemon lime, light floral notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

3.7
Kurtos (200) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a light hazy yellow. Aroma. Tropical fruits with a bit of caramel on the nose. Taste. I can taste a slight pineyness followed by a bit of pineapple, also i believe the marketing description accurately describes the taste of this beer.

jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2014
From the tap poured a straw color with a good amount of head. Light spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.
