Had this one on draft at the brewery in Cinci. A delicious Belgian pale ale, slight citrus aroma with a strong belgium malty tasting profile. A surprisingly great Belgian pale ale. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours orange with a medium white head. Aroma is VERY fruity, kiwi, mango, maybe passion fruit, lots of fruit character. Taste took me by surprise? its a blast of fruit all the way, no hop bitterness or anything, full fruit slam. Very good brew.

12 oz. can from Old Town. Aroma: Salted lime; honey dew melon; light Sauv Blanc with maybe a hint of cereal. Appearance: Pours a pale gold with average carbonation propping up a foamy white head; the head settles into a patchy ring. Flavor: Straight up salted lime at first; with just a little melon; white wine notes become more noticeable towards the finish; which dries out well and is lightly bitter. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Wonderful beer; not really sure why they want to call this a Belgian Ale; as others have said, it’s more like an APA/IPA if anything.

Pours very light pale gold with white head. Light body. I really like this style. Initial citrus sweet ness with other fruit sweetness. A good amount of yeast and malt flavor. Slight bitterness to finish with more sweetness.

Yellow/gold pour with fluffy white wispy head. Awesome hop boutique - cantaloupe, melon, citrus, Belgian yeast, scrumptious. Very enjoyable.

Can from Val-U. Pours a clearish, glowing straw with a finger of soapy foam that lingers a bit. At first a nice Belgian yeast nose, but as it warms tons of motueka and Nelson....lychee, pineapple and passion fruit dominate. Dry with good yeast character on the palate. Dry finish with some peppery notes from the yeast. This slays. 2 months old and still the hops are very loud. A winner.
