Notes/Commercial Description:
This Pale American Belgo style beer was 2010 GABF’s silver medal winner. It has notes of spicy pineapple, mango bubblegum aromas which comes from the unique marriage of a special Belgian yeast and an American Simcoe hop. This beer has an initial soft malt sweetness with orange fruitiness and finishes with a hoppy dryness.

4.08/5  rDev +6.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Growler filled over two months ago (sitting in fridge since) and poured into brandy snifter.

Appearance - clear copper with very little head after agressive pour. This may very easily be because it has been sitting in a growler so long. In spite of such a small head, there is actually a bit of lacing on the glass and the head valiantly tries to stick around.

Smell - Well, Simcoe, of course is in there. But this is very much a Belgian and not a hop bomb. There is a pruny fruit smell that is almost as big as the hops.

Taste - A mixture of sweet fruits. The hops seem to blend into the background. Honestly, it tastes quite a bit like Stone 08/08, but seems more delicately hopped and with less noticeable alcohol. Hops do build as glass is sipped.

Mouthfeel - I am amazed that with such little head there is quite a bit of carbonation tingle in the mouth. That is actually my first feeling, followed by a bit of a malt thinkness.

Drinkablity - Remarkably smooth and dangerous. On just a sip, I would never guess that this is 8.5%.

Serving type: growler
