Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; with crisp malt/yeast/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Belgian pale ale. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12 ounce bottle decanted into a curved pint glass.
Appearance: Lightly stained maple, moderate haze, with small islands of foam drifting around inside an off-white ring (3/5).
Aroma: Pears and apples. I’m digging in there for more, but I’m pretty much just getting pears and apples (3/5).
Taste: Very light and fruity. Nothing else really jumps out at me. I guess I could imagine a hint of honey on the finish, but even that might be a stretch (2.75/5).
Mouthfeel: Light body, medium carbonation (3/5).
Overall: This beer is extremely one dimensional. It’s so straight-forward, in fact, that I eventually got a little tired of it. The label suggests that I should be picking up flavors like pineapple, bubblegum, clove, and nutmeg, but my tongue disagrees. It also says that Hangar 24 used a sour mash to add tartness to this “complex, slightly sour treat”. Hmmm... (2.75/5).

3.8/5  rDev +11.4%

Appearance: Nice shade of gold, good foam and lacing.

Smell: Lemon, grass, bubblegum, spice… and some others I can’t quite identify. Complex nose to it.

Taste: Tart lemon, grass, spice, pear… and still more distinct but subtle flavors.

Mouthfeel: Deceptively light bodied, with a slightly tart aftertaste.

Overall: Good beer. Slightly different with a higher ABV than your average summer brew, with a complexity to it that is just slightly disjointed buy still pretty darn tasty. I like it.
