Poured from a capped 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Gentle hand. No identifiable date.

A: Hazy, light golden-orange body. 2 fingers of rocky, off-white head with excellent retention. Leaves impressive, jutting floes. Nice lacing.

S: Musty yeast. American hops with the floral component dialed up. Flourishes of fruit - apple, pear, lemon, white grape. Pepper. Hay. Earth. Brown & candi sugar.

T: American hops (cascade?) and a yeasty spice open. Tempered with a bready pale malt and some earthy funk. Light alcohol presence. Lingering hops in the aftertaste with citrus and light pine notes.

M: Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. Smooth and slightly creamy, if not a touch too light on the palate.

O: Think Belgian pale ale meets American pale ale, plus some elements of a saison and whole flower hops. Nice balance with a slight tilt towards the hops. Very drinkable.

Prost!

Minimal review, on tap:
Lightly hazy golden, nicely sustaining head.
Nose quite interesting bread and pine, lightly grassy floral (meadow).
Taste is a bit bland in comparison. Lighly fruity (pear), perhaps a hint of Belgian yeast esters, some noble hop bitterness.
Feel on the light side, buoyed but some carbonation. Given that, body relatively fuller.

I thought this to be a pretty decent beer. I noticed some banana notes in the aroma.
Looked nice with a tall head.
Smelled good too with spicey malts and hops.
Good

When I drink a Belgian the first thing I want to smell, taste and feel a bit of is a good amount of alcohol delivered from a generous amount of malt, this beer is definitely lacking in this category. The nose is muddled and the taste is almost bland. Further proof that some people really miss the mark when going for "belgians." You can try it for the experience, bit I would jot seek this beer out. Had on tap in a glass.

Not the greatest Belgian style pale ale, but definitely worth a try if you see it
