3.71/5 rDev -4.1%
On tap at the brewery. Served in a pint glass. This beer is dark golden with the slightest haze and just the faint remnants of a white filmy head. Aromas of a Belgian but subdued...estery yeast-bananaish. crisp clean malt. Taste is nice but well diminished. Weak malt backbone with that characteristic Belgian yeastiness. Very soft mouthfeel. Smooth. A bit bitter in the finish. The more I drink this the more I'm liking the overall experience.

On tap at Surly's taproom. 16 oz. serving in a shaker glass.
Appearance: Color is a deep golden amber. Moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of off white head that fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A yeasty and spicy Belgian style aroma with a fairly strong hop presence. Belgian yeast upfront with some hints of funk, clove spice, and pepper. Esters of banana fruit and bubblegum as well as some citrus orange, pineapple, tangerine, and apricot. Bready malts with hints of grains, biscuit, oats, rye spice, and caramel. Solid hop presence with some earthy hints of grass and pine.
Taste: Like it smells, a spicy and bready yeast driven Belgian style taste. Belgian yeast with some funk, pepper, and quite a bit of clove spicing. Big taste of fruit esters with notes of banana and citrus orange, pineapple, apricot, and tangerine. Some bubblegum taste in the mix as well as some candied sugar. Bready malt presence with a taste of grains, biscuit, rye spice, oats, and caramel. Some bitter earthy hops are present with notes of grass and pine. A very good balanced taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, spicy, and very smooth. Finishes pretty dry.
Overall: A very solid Belgian inspired pale ale. Good balance of yeast, spice, malt, and hop flavors.
