Notes / Commercial Description:
Our unfiltered Breakfast Ale is as fresh and full of flavor as a day down the shore! Fermented with Belgian ale yeast, this beer has a slightly tangy, fruity taste that pairs as well with bacon and eggs as it does with a back yard barbecue. Easy to drink with wonderful flavor, a combination that makes this beer a Summer favorite!

Poured a murky burnt orange hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and decent lacing.

The smell featured a moderate yeast ester with some wheat spice.

The taste consisted of fruity and earthy esters with some citrus, soft candy sugar and chewy wheat malt.

The mouthfeel was moderately chewy.

Overall a tasty and refreshing Belgian inspired ale.

No date.

A: Huge head--really, like it's infected.

S: Initially, all I get is dust. Later, sweet Belgian yeast byproducts come through.

T: The same dustiness comes through, as does the yeast. There is some tartness on the finish. Really pretty simple flavors, but not bad (except for the dust).

M: Pretty flat.

O: I'm not sure if there was something wrong with this beer. The huge head. Could indicate so, but the flavor isn't obviously of infection. Not something I will look for in the future, but not bad.

Pours a cloudy orange with a huge head, maybe too much of one. Really glad I didn't give it a hard pour. The head is soapy and hangs around for a long time.
Smells of spicy citrus, pine, grass and, strangely enough, cotton candy.
Foams and bubbles in the mouth with notes of Belgian yeast. Spice, cloves and anise predominate with lingering notes of candy and brown sugar.
Low point is the excessive carbonation which makes it a little difficult to drink. Breakfast? Don't see that happening.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a deep golden/ brown color with a 1 inch head. Smell is absolutely bursting with fruit. Taste is also fruity, yeast, some spice, lots going on here. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall I was pleasently surprised with this beer. Worth seeking out.
