Pours hazy gold with a thin off white head. Citrus, Belgian yeast in the aroma. Good flavor, orange, light Belgian yeast flavor. Touch thin.

On tap at the brewpub. Poured a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma had a combination of light fruit, flora, citrus and a bit of backing sweet grains. Flavor was similar with light fruits and flora at the start joined by some citrus and sweet grains. Drank easy but a bit muddled. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2011
On tap at hay... Pours a slightly hazy golden hue and topped with a thin soapy head... Semi-sweet citrusy overtones upfront with orange Belgian yeast notes to go along side it... Flavors are semi-sweet with that typical Belgian yeast characteristics that Peres Belgian brews are known to have. Prickly semi-lively carbonation and a light bitterness on the backend. Lighter bodied and pretty easily drinkable. drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 7, 2011

Draft at Haymarket. This one pours a hazy orange-gold with a sticky head. Nose is full of Belgian fruitiness and strong citrus notes from the Amarillo. Great nose on this one. On taste, there seems to be a ton of yeast in suspension and I’m not really a fan of the type of bitterness in this one. The citrusy component is really nice, I just want it to all integrate better. Some bread notes are present as well. A decent beer, just something with the yeast that is a bit off.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a duller golden yellow hue, well hazed, almost murky with a moderate white head, brighter, laces well and sticks around as a decent layer. Aromas are some fruity esters, bananas and apple move into lemons, grapefruit, touches of spicy yeasty bread dough. Grainy cereal malts, florals, and grass. Moderate hopping grows, a bigger grapefruit element asserts itself. Initial is lighter bodied, a big grapefruity bitterness up front, some pine and florals. An assertive up front bitterness moves into a lighter beer, bread dough and some estery fruitiness, touches of Belgian yeast, cereal grains, touches of soap and faint piney qualities that might just be more florals. Finish leaves that bitterness slowly fading (but growing in waves as you drink). Mellow bready malts, crisp, with some fruity undertones from the Belgian yeast come through, stick around. But the Belgian elements subside, leaving way for a nice crisp bready maltiness. Hops are nice, light bodied, perhaps a bit sharp up front. But the fruity Belgian yeast by products seem a bit lighter, nowhere near cloying. Nice solid sessionable Belgian Pale Ale here with a more robust stronger American hopping that kinda kills down a strong Belgian influence.. Probably why I like it.
