Interesting beer.

Pours with a massive and frothy head that slowly dissipates. Will fill 80% of glass if you just dump it in like I did.

Smelled like a Belgian, but light and faint.

Based on the smell, thought it would be sweet. Wasn't the case at all.

Smooth across the tongue. Slightly sweet, slightly tart. Like a light pale ale. Bitter but smooth finish.

It truly is a belgian-hoppy-pale hybrid that hard to compare to another beer.

It's light and fluffy, earthy and slightly hoppy and dry. The closest beer I can compare it to is a slightly more bitter version of Crooked Stave's WWBY here in Colorado (minus the brett).

Very drinkable. A solid choice for a summer sipper.

A: ever-so-slight haze, orange/amber color, very nice rocky head
S: mild to medium nose, some Belgian characteristics with spicy hops and yeast
T: well-balanced with malt and hops, good spicy/earthy bitter finish, nothing out of ordinary but well-made
M: decent, well-balanced

Not the greatest Belgian style pale ale, but definitely worth a try if you see it

Appearance: Arrives with a frothy head that sits atop the amber colored liquid

Smell: Belgian yeast commingled with earthy hops, peppery spice and orange peel

Taste: Opens rather yeasty and peppery, with a move toward and earthy and fruity hop flavor in the middle; the spices linger in the finish rounding out the flavor profile

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate to high carbonation

Overall: A really nice hybrid style beer - a bit of a Belgian pale, a bit of a Belgian IPA and a bit of a Wit
