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).

Bottle from Dad. No bottle date but worried I let this sit around for too long. Oh well. Pours a light copper/dark gold color with big fast creamy frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Aroma of earthy yeast and hop, orange, pine, dirt, hay. Flavor is earthy yeast, straw, and maybe some stale hops. Probably let this sit a little long but not bad. Yeasty farmhouse funk. Easy drinking and plenty of carbonation.
