This Pale American Belgo style beer was 2010 GABF’s silver medal winner. It has notes of spicy pineapple, mango bubblegum aromas which comes from the unique marriage of a special Bel-gian yeast and an American Simcoe hop. This beer has an initial soft malt sweetness with orange fruitiness and finishes with a hoppy dryness.
A.B.V. formerly at 10.0% and 10.5%.

Hazy copper pour with a thin soapy white head .... Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruity, oranges and Bubblegum .... Taste of fruity Belgian yeast, oranges, floral hops, bubblegum and a dry bitter hop ... Dry and bitter finish with a lingering fruity yeast flavor ... Has a slight hint of abv in the aroma. ... Overall a solid Belgian strong bordering on a Belgian pale ale

Tap. Dark amber. Lingering, thin layer of head. Lacing. Piney nose. Honey sweetness balances with piney hops. Like Hopslam!

Interesting and hard to distinguish a style. Pale ale or Belgian? The aroma was hoppy with some Belgian yeast character. Fruit esters as well. Deep copper color with a thin head. Average weight with strong carbonation. Citrus hops bitterness followed by average malt base. The Belgian yeast threw me for a curve with some interesting after flavors. Good and different.

Notes from GABF 2013. Pretty agressive head, nose of pine, orange, some grapefruit. Belgian yeast muddles everything up though for the hops. Didn’t work for me.

Pours a cloudy gold color with a big white head. Aroma is piney hops with a big gassy hay-like sugar sweetness coming out underneath. On the palate, the beer is sweet, but finishes with a biting astringency. Hops are strong on the open, but come and go immediately. Not impressed.

Pour on tap at GABF, hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, nice orange, grapefruit, hints of lemon, slight spice in there going into some caramel, toffee notes, pretty nice. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, lots of nice orange, orange peel, hints of lemon, grapefruit in there, going into some earthy spice, finishing bitter, slightly dry.
