Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a crystal clear light golden-amber color with a nice one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very slowly over time leaving a great level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell –The aroma is heavy of a light fruit smell with peach and apricot being the heaviest and is accompanied by lightly toasted malt smell. Along with these smells comes some aromas of a light yeasty nature as well as some candied sugar and toasted bread smells. A little bit of a graininess and some grass and herbal hop smells add to the overall nose and create a rather pleasant and crisp aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice blend of sweeter fruitiness and crisp malt. The sweeter fruits are mainly of a peach and apricot nature, but also contain a little bit of an apple taste. The malt that is present upfront is mainly of a pale Belgian malt taste taking on a somewhat doughy and lightly toasted biscuit nature. As the taste moves forward the malt and fruit remain rather constant with some other flavors of a light yeast and a bit of a grassy flavor coming to the tongue. A bit of a graininess and some floral and citrus hop flavors come to the tongue at the end, leaving a somewhat sweeter but very crisp and quite drinkable Belgian pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is thinner and crisp with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation are fantastic for complementing the lightly toasted, malty, and fruity flavors of the brew with the high effervescence adding to its very drinkable nature.

Overall- A quite tasty and more sessionalble Belgian pale ale. While not quite to the level of its bottle fermented brethren, it is very crisp and tasty none the less and makes for a very delicious brew.

Fairly clear straw with a lingering head of white foam. Aroma is floral, with lemon zest and Belgian yeast funk. There's a bit of spice and perfumey notes. Flavor is lemony and minerally, with a cracker malt backbone. Very clean and refreshing, with a great balance of bitter finish and citrus character.
