750ml bomber poured into a snifter. The pour was pale golden and slightly cloudy. A 1-inch head emerged and retained, with pleny of thick lacing and an average amount of carbonation. The nose was grassy and hoppy.

I like this one. Very well-balanced with just the right amount of malt cut by the hoppy goodness at the forefront. It finished with notes of spice and yeast. Complex but not pretentious. I'll certainly have another. Well done, Perennial.

a delightful little beer here, a clever take on an underwhelming Americanized style. this pours like champagne, clear light yellow and very brightly carbonated. its got a semisweet nose, with touches of honey and clover meadow cascading my senses. Belgian yeast more like a witbier than a pale, and just the right amount of hops to be sassy without being bold or brash. the taste is exactly as I described the nose, with some almost wild yeast elements creeping in, and more of the honey flavor without the sugar on the finish, fully fermented by what appears to be a very active and powerful strain of Belgian yeast. the feel is a little out of place, carbonated like a brut and finishing dry, its unexpectedly light in that way, and almost rushes me through the flavor journey. its super light and drinkable, especially at under 6% abv, but I would have liked the feel to be just a bit more relaxed. still, its just right for summer drinking, and is a great introduction to perennial ales for me. I will absolutely look forward to drinking more of their stuff and visiting their brewery my next pass through the gateway city.

I had this at The Porch in Virginia Beach.

A cloudy yellow beer, with nicely foamy head, and not too much protein thickness. Scantily laces down the glass.

Smells like fresh greeen hops. Reminds me of the stuff I've grown and brewed with, very woody and grassy.

The taste is a bit rough at first, but its very balanced and starts going down incredibly quick after some acclimation. The maltiness has a toasty character, reminds me of the first time I had Fat tire. Amazing how light it is to get this flavor. That toastiness really works with the character of the hops to tease out the finer flavors in them, which I would have guess weren;t there based on the aroma. Belgian spices bring it all together for an interesting finish.

The body was balanced, and I mentioned, incredibly drinkable. I'm not a fan of the trend of >7% IPAs, and I'm happy this one is bucking that trend.

I would drink this again.

4.21/5  rDev +11.1%

Appearance: Arrives with a frothy head that sits atop the amber colored liquid

Smell: Belgian yeast commingled with earthy hops, peppery spice and orange peel

Taste: Opens rather yeasty and peppery, with a move toward and earthy and fruity hop flavor in the middle; the spices linger in the finish rounding out the flavor profile

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really nice hybrid style beer - a bit of a Belgian pale, a bit of a Belgian IPA and a bit of a Wit

You get a rich, frothy head of two fingers, somewhat airy so it starts dimpling right off and retention is average to average plus, off-white in color, randomly assigns big splotches of lacing to the glass, not consistent around the sides. The liquid is a coppery orange, more red tint than yellow, loads of effervescence, a cloud of hyperactive tiny bubbles churning inside. The nose has a decided leafy, earthy quality to it, metallic and with notes of cracked black pepper and sourdough bread crusts, there is a softer side featuring banana, flowers and peach pits, not getting much citrus, earthiness builds and gets close to asphalt or tar at times. Medium-bodied and firm, the carbonation is lower than would be expected based on visual inspection and it is dry and slowly paced from mouth entry through finish. Produces that metal, mineral to earth side in spades, the herbaceousness is not green and biting, more like fallen leaves, twigs and bark. Increase in sour oranges, decrease in flowers and pepper. The banana, bubblegum persists, low level of apricot, apple, peach fruit. Baking soda, bread crusts and toasted dough, not sweetly yeasty. The dryness impedes length of flavors, accentuates its bitterness. Refreshing in its own way, not really a personally favored style.
