On-tap at Red Lion Grog House, Indianapolis. I found this to be more of a Belgian style red, rather than a pale ale. Poured a very nice copper color and a wonderful amount of head, with some very nice lacing. Nice deep malty scent, with a great extra sweetness at the end. Excellent flavor, nice maltiness up front with a nice spicy Belgian yeast flavor at the end. Went down very sweet and was awesome with curry-dipped fries.

Serving type: on-tap

3.38/5  rDev -13.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - This is a clear but pretty yellow in color with a good, retentive head.

Smell - There is some yeast to this nose but it is very faint. I can also get some spicing, maybe white pepper, but again it is very light.

Taste - The yeast comes out mildly at the mouth and now I have a sense of bubble come. The flavors aren't bad here but are understated for the style.

Mouthfeel - This is light in the cheeks but lacks that tingly feel of a traditional BPA.

Drinkability - This went down well enough but wouldn't order again.

Serving type: on-tap

grabbed at the brewery a couple days ago and poured cold from the growler a deep dark coppery amber to a sun king shaped pint with a full finger, off-white head leaving a thin bit of quickly receding lace after each sip.

big aroma of belgian yeasts and a hint of banana and spices.

fruity, sweet forward, big belgian yeasts, spicy after, cloves and a bit of pepper?

medium bodied, big carbonation, creamy smooth.

very refreshing, enjoyable, low abv, thumbs up.

Serving type: growler
