3.33/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 ml bottle poured into tulip glass

A: Hazy appearance, bright orange in color, head foams up like most belgian style beers, when it condenses it is thick like shaving cream and super frothy

S: The noce is all belgian yeast character, a distinct tartness comes through with a bit of spiciness as well, some biscuity malt too

T: The flavor is a huge letdown from the appearance and aroma, definitely has a fuller malt profile than I expected, the hops provide a pretty clean spicy bitterness that is also stronger than anticipated, the belgian yeast character is hidden until the end of the flavor profile and presents itself almost exclusively as a spiciness, all of these just don't mix that well to me

M: Strong carbonation, has a definite dry finish but still manages to feel full, not bad

O: I think this is an example of trying to experiment with a combination of styles that just ends up not working that well. Overall a decent beer, nothing "wrong" with it, but very average in the flavor department.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

750ml bottle decanted into an oversized snifter. 5.9% ABV.
Appearance: Soft, soapy head over a brilliant copper body. Beautiful (4.25/5).
Aroma: The first impression is one of Pacific Northwestern hops. The second is the spice and earth and fresh vegetation that one would expect from a pushy Belgian hop strain. There’s a touch of kumquat and apple cider on the backend. Very inviting (4/5).
Taste: Very little stands out. A little citrus, a little apple, and a little caramel. The American hops wind up in the aftertaste, and then gently fade to black. It’s light and refreshing, but not mind-blowing (3/5).
Mouthfeel: Light body, medium/high carbonation (3.75/5).
Overall: In Brew Your Own magazine, Jamil Zainasheff suggests that when you are designing a Belgian Pale Ale you should not “use citrusy or catty American-type hops, as they seem to clash with, rather than, accentuate, the phenols and ester from fermentation.” I think that’s a little bit of what’s going on here. I definitely don’t hate it, and I recognize it’s not trying to be the truest example of the style, but there is a touch of “clash” that I couldn’t put my finger on until I read Zainasheff’s comments. Ultimately this beer is kind of like me… pretty to look at, but built to be slightly disagreeable (3.25/5).

Thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this one. Served in a Struise cervoise.

A - A finger-plus of white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving ample glass-coating lacework behind. Transparent golden body.

S - Aroma is interesting, but I'm not sure what to make of it. There's plenty of standard Belgian pale flavors - spicy, phenolic Belgian yeast, honey, a bit of vanilla pale malt sweetness - but there's a very strange hop aroma that seems almost sweaty or onion-like. Did they use Summit hops in this? There was also a hint of alcohol that really shouldn't be present in a 6% beer.

T - The taste was far more in line with my expectations. Belgian yeast, toasted grains, a bit of honey sweetness, and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. It's more enjoyable, but less complex than the aroma.

M - Medium body, medium-low carbonation, slightly grainy texture, and a clean, crisp finish.

D - A pretty solid Belgian Pale Ale that's marred by a bizarre and slightly unpleasant aroma. That being said it was a significant improvement over their Strawberry Rhubarb Tart. Passable, but I'm still waiting for Perennial to impress me.
