I'm a fan of both Belgian pales and of Uinta so I'm giving this one good marks. Pours great and has a beautiful golden straw color. Taste of a classic triple, spiced a bit peppery with a hint of banana. Good beer.

Nice and bright taste, coppery is the word I would use but in a very positive manner. Minimal aftertaste and I would say lends itself to summer. Pairs well with chicken and fish and citrus. Solid choice for intro to Belgians.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 5, 2015.

Pale yellow pour with a quick lasting white head.

Decent enough aromas of toast, bread, Belgian sugar, Belgian spice, and grassy hops.

Light body.

Nice sweetness in the flavor with a slightly bitter and spicy bite to finish it up. Easy drinking, Refreshing.

Purchased: May 2, 2015

Misc.: Best before Aug. 5, 2015

Poured a golden, pale, clear color with four fingers of off-white, frothy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good amount of layered, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 4.25)

Smelled pleasant notes of banana, spicy Belgian cloves, honey, caramel, honey wheat and light sour fruit. (Smell - 4.25)

Tasted pretty close to the smell as well, getting banana, light Circus Peanuts, Belgian cloves, honey wheat, caramel, spicy Belgian notes, sour fruit, kiwi and green apple. (Taste - 4.00)

Light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.00)

A really tasty Belgian Pale Ale. I’d have it again for sure. (Overall - 4.00)
