Crystal clear golden yellow in color. Poured with a short, bright white foam that slowly reduced to a wispy cap while leaving sheets of sticky lacings on the glass. Fresh floral hop aromas with an herbal spiciness beneath and a light biscuit malt notes. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Very easy drinking. Very smooth up front with delicate, rich carbonation rolling through the middle to the end. Floral hop flavors up front that slowly expand and transition to a spicy herbal hop bite through the middle. Biscuity malt flavors are more apparent from the middle to the end. Finished cleanly with bready, spicy herbal aftertaste. Tons of flavor and easy drinking. Hopefully this becomes part of Yards regular lineup. Doop.

32 oz growler poured into a pint glass.

Appearance
Yellow-straw with 2 fingers of loose, white head that dissipates quickly. Excellent clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Mango, pineapple, and passion fruit.

Taste
Musky mango, sweaty pineapple, and light notes of passion fruit. Honey sweet maltiness along with additional candy sugars. Finishes with touches of pine and some lingering onion.

Mouthfeel
Medium-light bodied, crisp, and refreshing.

Overall
I'm not sure where the Belgian part comes into play, but this is a really solid American Pale Ale.

I am a member of the Sons of Ben and love the Union and Yards. This beer is awful. I guess the goal was to make a light brew for easy quaffing but they've made a "session beer that has a bad aftertaste. Truly disappointed--really expected so much more in this one off for the SOBs.
Really wanted to toss it away after two sips. I think the SOBs and the Union should get to taste the beer before putting their name behind it. Quality first don't sell because of the label/name on it. Yards you owe us a better one next time. It is light in color -- yes like a light beer-- and it fizzes but all it's got is a bad aftertaste.
