Stopped by DeCiccos in Brewster on my way back home from Reading PA. Grabbed some lunch and a 14oz tulip of this offering ($4.00).

The small glass contained a pale to medium golden bier. It was clear, and had a steady stream of fine carbo. Head was thin and white, and left nice lace. The nose was mild and a bit crackery, with some light fruit coming forth. Body was medium, and it had just a tickle of prickle on the tongue.

Light sweetness first appeared, with more crackery malts. Some light fruit came on, with pear and green apple being prominent. Had a subtle hint of candy sugar, with some floral hops also chiming in. The finish had some lingering fruitiness. Pretty decent, though not something crave-worthy. Prosit!

Pours a clear pale straw color, with a honey hue. The white head is small and settled into a light ring.

The aroma is perfumey from the yeast. Some floral and musty scents. A bit of a light grapefruit hop presence and other general fruitness. Smells American made.

The taste is similar to the smell. It is floral and clovey from the yeast and a bit musty. The malt is fairly dry and provides some honey sweetness. The hops are a mix of grass, citrus and tropical fruit. Kind of orangy.

Drinks incrediably well. Light to moderate feel with weakish carbonation. That could have been caused by a week in the growler. Good balance between the sweet and bitter. Very refreshing.

An nice american made Belgian pale ale. It doesn't quite have that unique belgian flavor but this drinks like a champ.

4.35/5  rDev +5.8%

A - Pours a very clear golden-orange color with a big finger of frothy white head atop and lots of visible carbonation. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of some lemon and citrus aromas, fruity esters from the yeast, some earthy hop, and some pepper and other spices.

T - Starts out with a mix of lemon and some light pepper and coriander. Through the middle, some earthy hop and some stronger spices and yeast esters come through. The finish is a mix of lemon peel, some grassy hop, and some yeast esters that linger.

M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus lively carbonation. Smooth with a dry and very crisp finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice American take on the Belgian Pale Ale style that it a bit more hop forward, but really works.

Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a vibrant peppery hop with a full clean ester.

The taste consisted of a sweet earthy malt with waves of pepper, grass and herbal hops.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a tasty hop forward estuary ale. Fresh and vibrant.

A new addition to the growler fill options at DeCicco's in Ardsley, NY.

Pours clear, lighter straw/golden, under a fluffy off white head, that stays a bit, before going to a soft, fine film and extensive, delicate lace.

Peppery nose, with some soft fruit and coriander notes.

More pepper, fruit, belgian yeast notes. Melon, lime, light mint. Light and flavorful, fine with fish, veggies and salads. Also worked well with some goat cheese. Real nice brew. If you like the style, this one is worth seeking out.
