look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Cloudy bronze with heaps of creamy rocky white froth.
Cream crackers, flowers and herbs, and wild yeast on the nose.
Ripe cantaloupe, some white pepper, a bit of graininess, honey sweetness, a bit of lemon rind and mild herbal hops.
Lemon barley sweet ending and humming, clean coriander linger.
Light to medium, crisp, round.

A light, drinkable blonde. Some lager character, but cloys as it warms. Still not excited by this brewery...

Bought in Brussels, but shared in Germany. Poured inot an oversized wine glass. On to the beer:

The color of a hazy blonde sunrise is topped with a large fluffy head which retains well and leaves rings of lacing around. The aroma is doughy, bready, with some lemon peel. It has a taste that is similar to the aroma, which begins with dough and bread, then quickly a squeeze of citrus and grassy notes being something to distract from the base. It's a medium bodied beer, and overall it's a solid blonde.

This is a very nice every day drinker, compairable with the Quinto from Vicaris. It has a nice bitter hoppy texture and mouth-feel, combined with some nice spices and a fine sweet aftertaste. And with the 5,5% it won't go to your head directly !
It also has enough appearance to serve as a sipping beer as well.
All in all, a deserved 4.0 overall, a beer I would definitely order in the pub if they have it on the menu (chance will be probably zero)

A - Golden colored beer with a bit of brown in there. Finger of white head that left some lace.

S - Some belgian yeast, grassy and citrusy hops, little bit of stone fruit.

T - Some pineapple and lighter fruits with a little bit of wheat. There's some citrusy and grassy hops along with some crystal wheat and a bit of phenolic yeast. Little bit of soapy taste on the end.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O - Not a bad beer for for lighter things I prefer more of an American style than stuff with belgian yeast. Decent beer.

3.53/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Color: yellow , gold , apple juice cloudy, whiteish head, dimply head, fluffy head

Smell: smell is pretty good on this one, bready, yeasty, sweet, belgian, some kind of fruit, cherry?, banana, a little bit of hops

Taste: pretty standard belgian pale / blonde, bready, more than standard bitterness on the finish, as it warmed up I got some nice hop fruit flavors which pushed this to above average for me

Mouthfeel: above average carbonation, dry, doesnt linger long, very sessionable

Its well made, the hop flavors as it warmed made it a bit interesting, I like the dochter, but I'm reaching for an embrasse over this. I admit bias against this style. But I could see drinking a few of these and watching a game, very drinkable, nicely put together.

Served on-tap at Liberty Taproom into a 12 ounce goblet.

A: Hazy, soft golden/yellow colored body with absolutely no head and no lace whatsoever. I'm thinking it may have been the way the bartender poured this once since the actual beer was literally full to the brim of the glass.

S: Light floral notes with undertones of dry breads and grains are first. Faint fruity notes of pear, green apple and a slight tartness are towards the back end. The nose; however, is overall weak and muted.

T: Pale malts are up front with a certain bready quality to them. An extremely light pear flavor comes in mid-palate, along with some citrus. There's a slight tartness to it at the very end and into the linger, but it's so understated you really need to look for it.

M: Light, watery and thin. It does have a somewhat prickly carbonation to it around the palate that's pleasant and not overdone. I just feel like the body is maybe too thin, though.

I didn't really find this beer enjoyable but it wasn't a complete turn off. The flavors themselves were weak and muted, follow that up with a watery body and it's just not something I'm looking for. There wasn't anything necessarily "off" about the flavor profile just not enough to keep my interest.

On-tap at the Brick Store. Tasted side-by-side with a bottle shared by Dan.

Pours a slightly hazy deep golden color with a white head that leaves decent lacing.

Smells of crisp light malts with good amounts of leafy hops and funk. Also present are soft pear aromas and mild amounts of breadiness.

Tastes similar to how it smells, though not as complex. Light malts up front are joined quickly by light citrus and earthy hops. Midway through the hops fade a bit and a good deal of funk comes into play. Near the end slight bready flavors work their way into things, fading out into a moderately bitter ending. Mouthfeel is good, with solid carbonation.

Overall the tap version was significantly crisper and more complex than the bottle. Worth a shot on-tap but I’d pass on the bottle.

On draft at the Brick Store Pub – tasted side by side with the bottled version.

Pours super cloudy with some floaties in the bottled version. A very white head dissipates rapidly. First sip is both bready and hoppy that starts sweet highlighting fruits and mild malts. It finishes nicely with a yeast bitterness that is dry and welcomed. Tap version was considerably better due to it being fresher and crisper.

33cl into a tulip. Pours a hazy light orange, head is a mix of large and small bubbles, it receded fairly quick, minor lacing.

Aroma is of tangy mango and fresh apple cider. Unusual, fairly complex.

The tang carries through in the flavor but on the mild side. Slight dryness. Finishes with trailing bitterness and a touch of cardboard. It fades pleasant enough but the final echo not so much. For better or worse, more flavor than most pale ales. Thin mouthfeel.

Appearance: golden yellow in color with a 1" head. Some light lacing develops.

Smell: grass and some biting hop bitterness comes through to the nose.

Taste: light grainy malt base with some grass, a hint of pepper, some spicy yeast flavors, and a moderate bitterness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Very crisp throughout. Aftertaste is short.

Overall: nicely drinkable belgian pale ale that is mildly refreshing butand quick drinking. A few can be had in a session.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

11.2 oz ($3.99 at RSVP in Portland, ME) bottle poured into tumbler. Best by 2012.

A: Pours a hazy, semi-opaque deep gold with sunny highlights. Rocky 3-finger eggshell head with nice retention settles slightly, leaving a fair amount of lacing on the glass.

S: Biscouty malts, Belgian yeast and a slight apple notes. Smells surprisingly domestic and hop-skunky.

T: Juicy-fruit sweet malts mingle with Belgian yeast up front, transitioning into a quick, skunky and perhaps distastefully bitter finish.

M: Carbonation is medium for the style, and it drinks rather "soft" compared to the sharpness often associated with Belgian pales. Nice and creamy, though.

O: I wasn't very impressed with this. Seems very unbalanced in that it quickly moves from sweet to extremely bitter without any seemingly harmonious qualities. The finish really makes this somewhat undrinkable for me. Won't be purchasing this again.

Bitter, unbalanced and ultimately disappointing.
