Served On-Tap

A — Pours a fairly vibrant and hazy orange hue into the glass, a billowy white head forms and settles to a nice little layer of suds on-top, lacing left behind is solid and consistent.

S — Smell is incredible and unexpected, with huge tropical notes of pineapple, guava, and melon, orange marmalade as well.

T — Unfortunately the aromas don't exactly carry though, I just get mild notes of fruit on top of a yeasty and bitter Belgian Pale base, lightly tangy, though mostly dominated by yeast.

M — Medium bodied, an acrid lingering finish as well.

O — Good overall, smell is really nice, but it doesn't translate to the flavor as well as I would have liked.

On-tap @ Alchemy, Madison, WI:

Pours hazed golden with a thin wispy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of grain, cotton candy, orange, lemongrass, slight spice.

The taste is of sweet grain, cotton candy/bubblegum, orange peel and a noticeable hop bite in the finish.

It is light-bodied and effervescent.

It is sweet with a touch of orange and a drying hop character. A nice take on a Belgian Pale Ale!

Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso

A- Mostly clear deep gold body poured from tap to tulip. A white cap builds to just over a finger with good retention. Medium belt straps spotty lace down the glass.

S- Mostly Belgian yeast off the top with undercurrents of citrus and floral hops. Spices, herbs, light cracked grains, lemon zest and apricot hints.

T- For me the hops open up a little bit more at this stage with orange, flowery, grassy and herbal notes. The focus of the beer is still the Belgian aspects with spicy phenols, pepper, straw, pear and citrus zest. Malts are faint like the nose but some pale cereal feel.

MF- Crisp and light bodied with a frothy, slightly creamy texture. Carbonation on the high side suiting the flavor profile. Light bitterness from yeast and hops.

Pale Belgian yeast profile with obvious but not over the top floral and fruity hops. Seems like Belgian Pales have not and might never catch on with certain crowds but this is a good summer refresher.
