Bottle: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light bread yeast with semi-sweet Belgian style malt. Taste is a refreshing mix between some light fruity notes with a semi-sweet Belgian style malt backbone with some bread yeast notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very refreshing with just enough complexity. I would love to have this on a regular basis.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass. Much thanks Toasterchef!

Out of the bottle she pours real nice, with a creamy off white head easily three fingers deep with a thick whipped presence. Retention manages well, good staying power if a little soapy but that meringue keeps glued. The body color is beautiful, it has numerous shades of orange amber and yellow gold, with super slow rising carbonation, and a strong middle column of fire in the middle. As it sits the head clumps like crazy all over the glass This is sexy looking, I am transfixed.

What an interesting nose. Sweet malts, a little bit of that classic Belgian sensing candy (sucrose?) but with a different sweet sense. Airy crisp malt and mild hop hiding, but a real creamy sensation whaffs over. It smells like sweet angel food cake, it's crazy, with a little bit of malt husk.

Palate reaches for a light bodied pale ale angle, but easily drinks like nothing going down. Crisp malt pleasanstry followed with a dense mild sweetness. Hop like finish hints just ever so slightly.. I can't pinpoint the profile, you just know it's there, that green leaf bitterness. Real complimenting flavors, that meld nicely, wonderfully balanced. I also love the fact the sweetness on this is so toned down too.

Overall, what a great super beer. An idea of a super session-able Belgian? Pattersbier? And one that seems all American to boot? I love it and I am normally NOT a fan of this brewery. Great friggin job!
