4.01/5 rDev +6.6%
Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a clear glass tulip. No obvious freshness date. Single singel purchased at Wine Warehouse (Charlottesville, VA).
A: Clear golden with soft, foamy 1-finger white head with decent retention and a few spots of lace.
S: Mostly grainy pale pilsner malt, a little bit of pear and golden apples matched with herbal, spicy floral hops. Peppery yeast ester, spicy and lightly citrus.
T: Big bold flavor for what is usually a ho-hum style. Big lemon pepper bite up front balanced with a honeyish pilsner malt sweetness through the mid-palate. The nose does not let on to the fruitiness of this ale, a lot of pear, orange, and tart apple, pineapple, more phenols when cold, decreasing in bitterness as it warms, and leaving a moderately bitter, herbal-floral finish.
M: Finishes nice and dry with light body and high carbonation, on point for all parts of the feel on this beer.
O: This beer really surprised me -- I had not liked their pale ale or cream ale too much, but this was one fine beer. Reminds me of a saison a lot, a little less estery though. A very interesting yeast character with a solid, spot-on pilsner maltiness dominating but accented with moderately peppery phenolics without overdoing it and nailing the feel. Great work on this one and I will be looking to buy more in the future.

Poured a cloudy deep gold with a short-lasting fizzy white head. Nothing fluffy about it. No lacing. The aroma claims tropical fruit and spices, which might be there, but in portions so small I can't detect them. It smells like "Singel" if that were a generic aroma. The taste is equally stereotypical, lacking in the complexities the label claims. There is a fair bit of carbonation on the palate and a decent weight to the body, not too heavy or light. All in all, this is a good take on a Singel. Nothing stunning, but certainly not terrible.

Bottled 7/18/14, poured into a tulip glass
A- pours a crystal clear golden color with a big foamy and creamy white head that retains long after the pour, with bubbles continuously shooting up the glass. Thick lace left behind
S- lots of spicy Belgian yeast aromas up front with notes of pepper, apple & pear, light phenolic notes with some must to close it out
T- sweet and fruity up front with flavors of pear and grape skin, spicy peppery yeast kicks in mid-palate with some musty and phenolic flavors closing it out, more linger of pear on the finish
M- medium body with low-moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth and crisp finish
O- a refreshing, yet complex Belgian pale that has high drinkability. A great take on a classic style!
