COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flat Earth Pale Ale is a Belgian pale ale. Inspired by beers like Orval and Rare Vos. Made with imported Belgian malt and a Belgian yeast strain. Our Belgian pale ale has a sweet malt aroma with traces of orange, plum and pear. Its complex malt backbone of biscuit and hints of toast to compliment the spiciness of the yeast. We hope you enjoy the fresh "Belgian" beer.

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Cloudy, golden yellow on the pour with a 1 inch head. Good carbonation holds the head. Wheaty, grassy aroma, thats not real strong. Flavor is mild, sweet, belgian yeast, and a little honey. Mouthfeel is a little rough. Burns a little on the finish. kind of an abrupt, rude finish.

22 oz. bottle acquired via trade with tennisjoel. Copper/rust colored pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, soap, and flowers. Belgian yeast flavor with a very subtle note of grassy hops. Drinkable but nothing spectacular.

Dark golden color, not much aroma. Standard Belgian taste to it, nothing special. Not a bad beer but not a great one in my opinion.

9/19/2008: Flat Earth Belgian Style Pale Ale pours coppery orange with not much head. It has a spicy aroma with some sort of grain. This beer is medium-light in body and tastes toasty and lightly fruity with some biscuit. It is soft on the palate by watery. Overall it this beer is somewhat bland.

1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle. Rating #91 for this beer.

2.1
kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2009
25 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange body with a thin fizzy white head that vanished completely fairly quickly. The nose is a little sweet for being a Belgian Pale, some honey, candi sugar, light belgian yeast, and maybe a little diacetyl. The flavor is pretty muddled, too much sweetness, not enough belgian character, and almost zero hops. That diacetyl comes out more on the finish the more it warms up. Mouthfeel is a little slick with an annoying clingy finish. A good bit of fizzy prickly carbonation. This was not good. Poor execution and obvious brewing flaws.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2009
22 oz. bottle. Clear copper, fleeting,small white head, no lace. Grainy aroma, some light stone fruit, and a distant floral character. Slightly watery, very little carbonation. Lightly sweet fruit flavors continue into the finish, which kind of washes out.

Surpisingly good beer that I picked up at Hutch Liqour. I get a little bit of a bitter taste, a hint of honey and spice. Nice light flavored beer great for warm days and BBQs because it’s really a refreshing beer.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Tasted 1/29/09. 22oz bomber. Explosive upon opening. Lost about a third of the brew to eruption. Golden bronze hue with three fingers of lacing bone whitehead. Aromas of cirtus and peppery. Good yeasty aromas. Medium bodied and crsip. Astringent effervescence. Nice, almost chalky yeast character. Decent malt backbone , but the yeast is the dominant flavor. Followed closely by the hops, which are piney and citrusy. Finishes crisp.

DalzAle (2037) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Unfiltered version from growler pciked up at the brewery today. Hazy amber/orange pour with plenty of carbonation with a fruity belgian/pear aroma. Flavor was plenty of malt, belgian yeast and finished a little sweet and fruit. Good for a summer bbq.
