Notes/Commercial Description:
Our unfiltered Breakfast Ale is as fresh and full of flavor as a day down the shore! Fermented with Belgian ale yeast, this beer has a slightly tangy, fruity taste that pairs as well with bacon and eggs as it does with a back yard barbecue. Easy to drink with wonderful flavor, a combination that makes this beer a Summer favorite!

poured into a .5 l cylinder.

A: Pours a very hazy dark golden yellow with a moderate amount of carbonation. Poured a 1 finger head with good retention, which returns with a swirl. Not much lacing. Not much to look at.

S: A pleasant Belgian style - Ample aromas of fruit yeast with pale malts and sweets and quite a bit Belgian yeast aroma.

T: Follows the smell with more fruit - I get pineapple mostly, with apple. strong hints of sweetness, yeast, and subtle of spice at the finish. A good finish. Nice.

M: Medium, a bit creamy.

O: Easy drink, light belgian style, indeed good for bfast whether at 4 or 7 am.
Original.

On the fence about recommending. Guess I'll have to try at Breakfast.

A: The beer is hazy dark golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down, leaving wispy lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity esters are present in the nose along with notes of pale malts and candi sugars as well as some hints of Belgian yeast.
T: The taste seems to be a lot fruitier compared to the smell—apples and bananas seem to stand out in particular—and has slight hints of sweetness. Hints of yeast and spices are noticeable towards the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink, and while the flavor is not very complex I agree with the label in that this would make a nice accompaniment to a breakfast of bacon and eggs.

A 12 ounce bottle that is very fresh.

The Appearance is great. A nice golden hue with a good inch and half of airy head.
The smell has soome citrus but is mostly yeast and spice.
The carbonation is a little on the high side and it doesn't have a big finish.
The Taste is yeasty and spicy. There are hints of banana on the finish.
Overall, I like this beer more than I probably should. But it is an enjoyable warm weather beer.
Very drinkable and it makes me want to get a shore house.
