Really happy to be able to try something from this brewery.

This is a nice Belgian Ale. Shouldn't it be a Belgian ipa though? It's a little sweet with the hop tones coming in the back as a decent accent. Carbonation is quite lively. After I pour the dregs in, the feel is quite smooth; silky almost.

This should be a Belgian ipa. I mean, hops are in the name. Ya know? Very glad I had the chance to try it. I'm looking forward to more from this brewery.

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.

Pours translucent medium amber, nice full head on top. Nothing special but looks nice.

Smells great--lots of bright, bitter orange citrus, some flowers and spice, dry champagne like yeast.

Taste is pretty similar, pretty bitter without being a hop bomb, lots of orange and some grapefruit, some dry spicy yeast.

This is a really solid beer, tasty and fairly original and easy to session.

7.6/10

750ml bottle served in a tulip. Poured a pretty, clear gold with a couple of fingers of fine bubbled white head. Aroma was a little yeasty with a nice hit of clove. Crisp and dry, light bodied. More clove in the finish along with some citrus and a decent amount of hop bitterness. Fairly carbonated. Very easy drinking. The best beer from Perennial out of the three that I have tried so far.

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?

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: medium golden hue with plenty of haze and a strong effervescence. Head is three fingers of frothy ivory foam. Quite good.

Smell: very sweet malt with a hint of funk and a ton of hop aroma. Hops are citrusy, fruity, perhaps a bit funky and a little bit floral. Interesting combination; I quite like it.

Taste: big, sweet malt, with a whole lot of that floral character from the aroma. Almost soapy in flavor. Sweetness is a bit too high, even for the style. It's not bad, per se, but it's not particularly amenable to my palate.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a huge carbonation and a pretty giant, mouth-filling creaminess. Great stuff.

Overall: texture is good, but I wish it had delivered a better flavor. If you are into floral gum candy or the like, then this beer may be for you. It is not for me.
