4.35/5 rDev +16.9%
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into an unbranded tulip glass
Pours a deep golden with heavy amber accents. In fact, this brew is nearly bronze. The thick, fluffy two finger clean white head has slightly above average retention and leaves behind some thin, delicate lacing. Grassy hops, mild pear, and general light earthiness. Grassy notes, very light hints of apricot, pearskin, and some accents of honey. Finishes dry and earthy with continued grassy hop notes. Light to light medium bodied with smooth, silky mouthfeel that feigns slightly heavier as the brew warms. Abundant, yet gentle carbonation. Subtlely complex and incredibly drinkable Aria joins Hommel Bier as another Perennial Belgian Pale Ale masterpiece.

A: into a tulip, pale amber with orange hue, confident pour releases a nice head three+ fingers high of ivory foam; left sparse lace webbings
S: ripe, sweet orchard fruits, suggestions of cinnamon and spice
T: immediate pale fruits and wine, brief flashes of a dank, musty undertones; by and large sweet and more like a tripel than a pale - lots of fruity spice, peach and clove assertions
M: soft, fuzzy, medium-full body, modest carbonation, but some tingles
O: a very soft, juicy, lush drink - perhaps off-putting if you're expecting something dry and musty, or very pale, but I found similarities to Piraat in both color and flavor, as well as to Belgian tripels in general, with their lush fruit character and solid body. Totally recommended.

Pours a slightly hazy, light copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of hops, slight floral hops, wet hops, sweet malt, spices, and slight dark citrus. Fits the style of a Belgian Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with a low carbonation level. Tastes of spices, hops, sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, great hoppy and spice blend in both aroma and body.

Poured into a tulip from a 750ml bottle.
Pours a nice hazy dark cooper with some orange hues. There is a nice half inch head that is of medium density and has some pretty good retention and some sticky lacing.
Aroma is typical of a Belgian ale. Nice fruity esters of apples and peach. Some good bready grain mixed in there as well. There is some slight sugary sweetness in the nose as well as some mild funky notes. The yeasty esters are spicy and slightly phenolic.
Flavor follows the nose. Starts off with some nice fruity notes. Notes of crisp pear and apple. Some slight vinous notes are present as well. The flavor is clean and fluffy. With some nice bready notes and slight earthy grain. The finish has some slight funk but more of a phenolic flavor mixed in with yeasty fruit notes. Mouthfeel is fluffy and has a slightly sticky and fruity finish.
Pretty good BPA. I enjoy the heavier fruit notes slightly balanced by some earthy funk. Pretty refreshing and yummy brew.

on tap at bainbridge barrel house
Clouded golden orange pour, topped by a cap of white, frothy head. Retains while sipping, survived by some patchy white lacing.
Funky yeast and brett in the nose with softer notions of hops. Spicier than their regular saison with cracked pepper and a hint of tempering sweetness.
Kiss of hops and Belgian yeast right up front. Citric peel, light bitterness and spicy cracked black pepper. Soft fruited sweetness, slightly malty and bready with a citric hoppy finish.
Medium body, somewhat higher carbonation, dry yet smooth on the tongue. Again, I tried about 5 of their beers in a row this evening and was impressed with every one.
