Acetobacter's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Batch 008. Enjoyed from a 13oz bottle in a chalice. The beer pours a moderately hazy straw-colored yellow, with a moderate white head. The nose shows characters of very light lemon, the Chimay yeast strain’s characteristic ester profile, and a very slight note of tartness. Malt or hops do not seem to come through in any meaningful manner. The flavor profile is truly illustrative of the seemingly boundless skill of the brewer, showing a level of depth and refinement seen in no other similar beers or examples of the style. Lemon zest; slight grain notes, perhaps from pilsner malt; and ester-derived complexity that almost indicates the addition of a wild yeast strain, in addition to the aforesaid culture. The finish is nicely dry and crisp. Overall, perhaps the benchmark of the Belgian Pale Ale style, and an absolutely excellent effort.

From Jan 2006 Poured from bottle a cloudy yellow with a thick and billowy head that settled down after a few minutes....but not much. ;^) The smell is clove spicy and there's also a fruity air to it but it's hard for me to pick out *which* fruit. The taste is a spicy mix of clove and pepper and there is some citrusy fruit and a bit of banana in the background. An unusual tasting brew, for me, but the end result is that it works nicely. Overall, this is a very good session Belgian style ale. I recommend it.

Super light pour aroma vague caramel. Tastes sludgy bread. Big disappointment does not deserve rating.

From tap at Russian River, Santa Rosa. Aroma is spicy Belgian yeast with a grainy malt base, coriander, a bit fruity with a hint of banana. Flavour is mild sweet with a moderate bitter dry finish. Body is medium. Good attempt at a spicy yeasty Belgian Ale.
