3.93/5 rDev +2.6%
Bright gold, thin white head that has decent retention and lacing.
S/T - Tastes a bit stronger than how it smells. Nice yeasty, funky body, backed up by only a touch of spice, and more lemon, grassy hops, finishing crisp, clean and dry, with minimal bitterness.
M - Light body, high carbonation, light and fluffy across the palate, finishes clean and dry.
O - Perfect beer to ring in the nice spring weather here. Good, but nothing I'd seek out.

Served on tap at Rattle N Hum in New York, NY
A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with an average sized white head. The head reduces to a thin layer of bubble over the entire surface of the beer over time. Moderate lacing is observed.
S: Some fruity esters are in the aroma for this beer along with apple, pear, grape, and some grains. A light amount of malt can be detected as well.
T: Mild malt flavors with some candi sugar, lemons, and a hint of hoppy bitterness in the finish. There is a light taste of white pepper as well - like the flavor in hot and sour soup.
M: Light to medium bodied with low to moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Very enjoyable and easy to drink. I would and could enjoy multiple of these in a session. I really like the white pepper hints in this beer a lot.

Growler fill from the new brew house. Pours with a rocky white head, one finger, light lacing, crystal clear golden color. Nice color. The aroma is packed with spice, clove, coriander, orange peal these dominate the nose. The flavor follows. Lots of spice on the palate, again clove, coriander, a very "clean" tasting beer. Grassy hops do make an apperance in the flavor profile. Very yeast driven beer here, both flavor and aroma wise. A more complex malt bill would be nice to add some charecter. The finish is long and boardering on cloying from the spices. The mouthfeel is not here nor there.
Overall I do enjoy this beer, but...I feel it is a little too spicy for the style and the finish is a bit to long and not dry enough. It is almost more like a blond then a pale. Still it tastes good, just not as "to style" as I like.

On tap at J. Ryan’s in Syracuse, NY. Poured to 10 or 11oz flute-ish mini-pint kind of glass (if that makes any sense)
Appearance (3.5): Clear, pale gold—as advertised, right? Moderate head, bone-white, with some fine bubbles in the body and some soapy, splotchy lace on the sides.
Smell (4.0): A lot of nice, fruity esters in the nose—apple, pear, green grape, and some fresh grain to complement, like uncooked pasta. Very pleasant effect, overall.
Taste (4.0): Some white pepper-type spice mixed with a fruitiness dominated by pears and slightly tart green grapes—this is a very nice Belgian pale ale. The yeast note is obvious here, but it’s also got a strong toasted, bready body in the malt profile—like fresh-baked bread.
Mouthfeel (3.5): Light, quenching, moderate body—not heavy by any means but not weak and light, either—with smooth, moderate carbonation that feels appropriate for the style and weight of the beer.
Overall (4.0): Very nice, straightforward Belgian pale ale. Others aiming for this style should use this as a reference point. Also, I think that this is one of those rare beers where you can really get a sense of what Belgian yeast does for beer, taking what would otherwise be a relatively plain, straightforward beer and making it a really winning BPA. Lovely beer, and I’ll be seeking this out in the future.

Served in a pint glass
A: Pours a clear light golden color with a finger of pure white head with fine bubbles that mostly dissipates and then lingers gently on top, leaves a nice amount of thin lacing
S: clove forward then bretty Belgian yeast and a slight sweetness
T: bready initially then slight lemony brightness in the middle, the yeast and slight banana note linger on to the end
M: medium carbonation, silky, smooth, leaves the mouth dry and yet bright
O: a nice take on the style, not the best but definitly drinks smooth and bright with a nice clean finish
