COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Invented for the Liége exposition of 1905 to compete with British imports, the Spéciale Belge or Belgian pale ale style marries the complexity of Belgium’s beers to the drinkability of Britain’s pale ales. Dageraad Amber’s light malty sweetness and rich bouquet of malt and stone fruit are balanced by a hoppy aroma and a crisp finish. This beer was inspired by the experience of enjoying a fresh bolleke − Antwerp locals’ affectionate nickname for a glass of De Koninck − in the Dageraadplatz, just a stone’s throw from the De Koninck Brewery.

Daaaaaa. This is the borderline chuggable Dageraad. Fairly unremarkable aroma which is ok since a quality product trumps that. Slight sweetness, grass, yeast. Very yeasty flavour, bite and aftertaste. Grass, slight fruit of some sort, coriander and some thing that is foreign to me. Fairly heavily carbonated. Dry. It’s ok but my dollars will go to the other Dags as I cannot see a repeat purchase as I know what else I could be enjoying from deez dudes.

Bottle from the brewery. The classy label and fancy name are a hint as to what's in the bottle. This is not a creative, over-the-top, new world ale. It is a solid, on-style Belgian ale. Which is not a slam. It is nice to have a local option. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Good foamy head that’s not too solid and a foggy medium orange body, poured at 5.9 celcius. Aroma like a burlap sack with coriander hints, yeast. Flavour is a lot of middling yeast without any strong hints, like the ingredients are cancelling each other out. No complexity, okay mouthfeel, seems to have missed its mark somehow.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, good retention and spotty lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grassy, stone fruit, caramel. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, short duration finish. (4/5) Nicely hoppy amber, with a pleasant supporting caramel malt. Not getting a whole lot of Belgian influence (other than the hop-forward aspect, of course). Solid performer, from a brewery that I’m growing steadily more impressed with. (14/20)

Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 23, 2015
Bomber. Unclear lighter copper, thinner off-white foam mostly lasts. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruity caramel, slightly grassy. Taste is yeasty fruity caramel malt, some spice. Moderate carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. Different. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Bomber. Lighter amber pour, tall off-white head, little lacing but solid retention. Aroma, caramel, some spicy phenols, bit of stone fruit. Taste goes from caramel malt into a moderately bitter end. Sharp finish, after taste is bitter but also has some spice. medium bodied, with a higher crisp carbonation level. Alcohol is somewhat apparent throughout

DuffMan (10936) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Deep golden/light Amber, lively head. Estery nose and palate, fruity caramel, hints of spice. Briskly carbonated, moderately bitter finish. On style, but just not my thing I guess.

3.6
presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2015
Almost no head on cloudy dark amber. Fruity nose with lots of melon. A little bit of dust in the body. Lively. Hoppy and fruity. Very nice. Meaty, hoppy fruit salad.

patricks110 (2843) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Enjoyable brew. Pours a light golden amber with a thick off white/yellowish head. Tons of lacing. The aroma is yeasty with nuts and caramel malts, light grainy notes. A bit of citrus and floral, grassy ester notes. Crisp malts, light wheat notes. A bit of floral and perfumy yeast notes with light citrus and coriander spice. Overall a nice, malty brew with a good yeast profile.

Visual: (growler fill). Pours cloudy pale brown with a quickly diminishing very small head, a thin layer of retention, light lacing, a few bubbles here and there. Nose: sweet fruity malts, wheat malts, hints of apple. (lvl-3)-pungency Attack: half-slick, thickish mouthfeel Mid-palate: light tingly, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) caramel malts, banana wheat malts, light clove, Finish: mild alcohol detection mixed with soft-to-long duration bitter hops, almost salty bitter hopped finish. Summary: Flavour and mouthfeel are nice, and a nice unique Belgian-style change-up from all the other offerings of the local Vancouver brews. The wheat shines through well but I’m not so keen on the "salty" hopped finish.
