The Black Abbey Brewing Company
Tennessee, United States

Style: Belgian Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our best seller! A rich, golden color with the spicy aroma of clove and candy banana. The Belgian yeast shines bright on the palate, light and silky, with a clean, slightly drying bitter finish. Pairs well with afternoons on the lake; spring fare, white fish and fruit.

Admittedly, I have a tough time getting behind the belgian pale ale. Just doesn't do it for me.

That being said, this is a decent example of the style. Crisp, banana flavored.

Had it on draft on a Christmas road trip,through Nashville. Golden yellow color, thin head and ok lacing. Sweet floral smell. Nice fresh taste that is lemony with bananas, a bit of orange. A pleasant beer!

I snagged this can from the Crafted Brewed bottle store in Nashville. It poured with a small head, and it looks delicious. I get mostly Belgian yeast in the nose, and the taste follows from that. It's pretty crisp and refreshing!

Poured on draft at a local restaurant.

A: Straw yellow with slight one finger white head. Short retention and little to no lacing.

S: Belgian yeast mixed with fruit esters, banana, and clove.

T: Candied banana, soft floral hops, and cracker malts.

M: Medium to light body with a crisp, dry finish.

O: Very nice twist on an American Blond Ale giving it some Belgian flare.
