L: Pours gold with a slight chill haze under a 3” finely bubbled off white foam cap that grips the side of the glass.
S: Slight Belgian yeast funk, earthiness, spice and light grains on the nose.
T: Starts bready and biscuit with some light fruit, hints of white grape, light tropical fruit, slight banana leading to a moderately bitter finish.
F: Very creamy, light medium body, medium high carbonation, very soft.
O: The brewer has nailed the Belgian pale ale texture, carbonation and body to produce a delightful, vvery drinkable brew. (544 characters)

What a pleasant surprise. Ordered a pint at Stub & Herb's in Minneapolis not sure what to expect and found a hell of a Belgian. It's easily borderline farmhouse ale, for the grassy, earthy bitter edge to the finish. The malt and yeast character sit upfront with soft, slightly sweet flavors. This is a very impressive take on the style - refreshing, drinkable, and complex.. There's nothing new here, but this is a great accomplishment for any American brewer. Find this beer. (476 characters)

750mL bottle into a chalice
no bottling dates

Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this one to me via trade.

A: Hazy light straw yellow with 1.5 fingers width of bright white colored head. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S: Tart citrus, fresh hay, lemon-lime.

T: Doesnt follow the nose. Spicy and an almost pungent earthy flavor. A bit of citrus, funky. It comes off as Brett-ish but I dont think there is any brettanomyces in it.

M/D:Fuller body, carbonation on the heavier side, drinkability is below average.

O: Its interesting, but not really my thing. Worth a try though. (588 characters)

A- Pours with 1 finger of white head. The body is golden with the slightest bit of haze. Nice lacing rings the glass.

S- Nice fruity belgian nose. Notes of Banana, Clove, Bits of orange peel, and a great hoppy presence giving of delightful pine aromatics.

T- Starts off with a solid whack of banana, clove, lemon and orange peel, bits of marmalade,grapefruit, along with a fantastic hoppy presence making the finish dry with remaining fruity notes (almost cantaloupe like.)

M- Carbonation is spritzy on the palette and not cloying. The finish is great.

D- Not sure on the ABV here but damn.. what a great beer. Combining some fantastic yeasty (think hefeweizen) and belgian spiciness with the hopiness that I get from an american IPA (think 2 hearted). Highly recommended. (777 characters)

Shining Dawn poured a clear golden color, with a nice sized head. There was a a subtle spicy aroma. The taste had a subtle hint of Belgian candies, but also had just a hint of a floral flavor. Nice full flavor, and I liked it wasn't overpowering, made it very easy to drink. Overall I found this a nice Belgian style beer, wasn't going to overpower you with its flavor, but was full and finished a little dry, and bitter. (421 characters)

On tap at the Valley Tap House.

Served in a Miller Lite Pint glass. Oh well. Very crystal clear light gold color with a very clean and pillowy head on top.

I think the smell was affected by the detergent used for the glass, but I'll do my best here. Very floral and soft smelling beer. A touch of hops and belgian yeast in there.

Wow, very soft and tasty. Lots of floral notes to go along with the belgian yeast flavor. Mild hop bitterness with plenty of belgian flavor. A touch soapy, but overall quite nice.

Crisp and clean feeling. Goes down easily with the soft carbonation.

Really enjoyed this sessionable beer. I believe the abv is under 5%. Very light, but still plenty of flavor to make it interesting and enjoyable for a long period. (747 characters)

The appearance of the beer is a cloudy glowing yellow with a frothy white head. The smell is of belgian yeast, maybe candi sugar, with a hint of hops. The taste of this beer is sweet at first but ends with a piney lingering hoppiness which is also spicy for a few moments. The mouthfeel feels like high carbonation, almost like a burning sensation. Almost reminds me of a Belgian IPA without the big hop aroma. All in all good Belgian Pale Ale. (444 characters)

Red Stag. On tap in a standard pint glass.

Not much of a head. I tasted a combination of a Belgian/Saison with the hops of an American Pale Ale or IPA. I liked the citrus flavors and loved the carbonation and crisp mouthfeel. It's a great combination of styles and went well with steak, fries, and mashed potatoes. I wouldn't recommend it for a session brew, but it definitely deserves a shot during these sultry summer months. (429 characters)
