Smells like an ipa, grapefruit rind olfactory., perhaps a lot like mild b/o. Taste is at first I think a little too hoppy then it evolves into this backbone of a lemon unsweetened fruit thing. yes, each swig the same; an aroma of mild b/o then a palate finish of a lemony furniture polish thing. Finish is APA. Probably not a belgdy if you are looking for this style, yes, more like an apa - but so what, its beer. Yep, no way is this anything like an old country belgian. Ita a wannah beeeeee.

Amber golden color. Apple cobbler with pineapple nose. Medium body with good malt backbone. A bit spicy hops. So much malt and decent

Fr0m a can (N0T fr0m The can... 0h, wait. I already used that.) - Nice g0ld/br0nze b0dy, tiny bubbled, with a m0dest head that rapidly reduces t0 a film. The ar0ma is spicy with h0ps - fl0ral (snapdrag0ns?), resiny, with tangerine and 0range rind - 0ver a light breadiness. The flav0r (which were t0ld can 0nly be sweet, bitter, s0ur, salty, and umami - Im glad Im stupid) sees the additi0n 0f bananas and 0ther fruit (umami apple?) with a black pepper bitterness (which I can taste, minus the pepper c0mment). Dry finish, mildly bitter and fruity. Nice sec0nd runnings beer, gentlebrewers!

SlovakSniper (5467) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2016
Cette canette contient un liquide cuivr qui fabrique une petite tte et une dentelle parse. Au nez, des fruits des tropiques, des levures de la Belgique et des crales grilles. En bouche, du pain et des pices, des agrumes et des fleurs dans une mouvance cohsive habilement capte par mes papilles qui ont une grande soif. Un corps professionnellement men avec bulles vives et effet de lgret. Une finale dananas et de citron avec un effet sec pic. Amusante comme tout. Cette bire se laisse boire facilement.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, floral hops, and pale malts. Flavor the same with a decent blend. Average texture. Not bad but not the best.

superspak (5312) - Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2013
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of peach, mango, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, banana, tangerine, pear, apple, floral, grass, clove, pepper, light pine, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great citrus/tropical hop complexity with a moderate yeast and malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big peach, pineapple, mango, tangerine, banana, lemon zest, orange zest, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, bread, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate earthy tartness and spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, pineapple, citrus zest, banana, clove, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light honey, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Awesome balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent Belgian pale ale! All around great balance and complexity of hop, yeast, and malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Sampled at the brewpub on Milwaukee. It came in the glass a rich gold color. Nose of citrus, lots of it. MEdium plus body with a resinous mouthfeel. Flavor is a blast of citrus and there is some stone fruit. Long bitter finish. Really good beer..

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Canned 01/16/17. The appearance is a medium sized fizzy white head that mostly diminished, transparent gold body, lively, fast rising carbonation observed, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, juicy, spicy, yeast, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, tropical fruit, grapefruit, yeast, lightly sweet, and malt. The mouthfeel is light-moderate carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. A very good tasting beer for its style. It has a very good hoppy taste to it that leaves me interested in drinking this again. It is well brewed and I look forward to rating more of their beers.

Bulk_Carrier (5055) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - JAN 21, 2017
Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a mild burnt golden orange color with a thin fingers worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Mild lacing sticks in rings. The aroma balances nicely between some white pepper, Belgian bready malts, and some sweet citrus. The flavor initially yields to the bready sweetness and then entices the citrus and white pepper for a nice balance. Some floral dry sweetness in underneath. Gently folds the sweet floral over the bready malts in the aftertaste and rolls into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Some stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, good Belgian pale ale that I would have again.
