4.05/5  rDev +7.1%

One finger of soft white head that slowly recedes.Nice thick film of foam. Good bubbling floating around a slightly hazey amber and copper colored hue. Good lacing too.

Spicey, faint citric hop aroma combines well with a yeasty dry fruit and toasted caramel malty aroma. The hop dominate the aroma, but overall is very balanced.

Mild toasty malts upfront. Cracker like crispness accentuated by the Belgian yeasts dryness and American, earthy and slight citric hop flavors. Such easy, carbonated, cleansing drinking. This beer is great and one I will buy again.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #62 (Mar 2012):

LOOK: Golden orange

SMELL: Earthy, leafy, soft resin, dragon fruit, yeast, faintly medicinal, peppery, floral, clementine pith

TASTE: Hop bitterness, leafy, tree bark, nutty yeast, orange peel, faint white peppercorn, kiwi, chalky, light melon rind, biscuity, mild warming alcohol, dry semi-bitter finish

Fresh and in your face, but without being aggressive. Depth and complexity won us over, and each sip made us think a little bit more. Hoppy Belgian Pale Ale with a generous and skilled hand adding Pacific NW hops. Best of both worlds?

Check out that tightly woven head with bright white foam,Brussels lacing and about a half inch of thickness. It's a dull coppery color with moderate carbonation. That's an interesting melange of aroma with the Belgian yeast strain and a faint bit of piney hops. The flavor is strongly the Belgian yeast strain and then you get a bit of piney hops in the fade. The mouth is heavily carbonated,chalky and dry.

(served in a globe glass)

A- This beer pours a slightly hazy orange body with a gentle swirl of microbubbles and a snow white thick foam that sticks in rings to the glass.

S- The perfume peach green hops blend with fruity yeasty esters and it turns a bit grassy in the finish. The full aroma blends yeasty ester and hops together very well.

T- The dry crisp green hops flavor has a nice hop zing in the slightly dry finish and a gentle lemon flavor comes through as it opens up. There are some hints of pale malt and yeasty esters blended together underneath.

M- The light mouthfeel has a scrubbing fizz that cleans the finish but no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The beautiful aroma is not matched by the flavor which becomes lost in the fizz. The flavor becomes more washed out by the fizz as the beer opens up.

On tap at the brewery. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy with a big white head. Pale orange body.

Smell - Grassy hops and a little grainy. Doughy and Belgian sweetness.

Taste - Much grassier. Some citrus, but otherwise grassy and herbal. Drops off quickly though. A little bitter after a grainy malt flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Very drinkable and tasty. I'm impressed.

Always a sucker for a beer with amazing carbonated action this built several inches of dense ivory colored foam. The body was bright yellow but a tad dingy.

Perfume, flower petals, roses, wheat, grains and a bit of honey touch the nose with a deliberate softness.

The flavor starts with honeysuckle and fresh peppercorns before it settles to a dry white wine, flower petals and light pear.

The feel is dry with a tangy sensation near the finish.

Nice, simple yet complex, but easy and light. Well done for the style.
