look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 32oz growler filled a few minutes ago at St Cambrinus into a stemless wineglass.
A: Two fingers of frothy white head. Hazy golden-orange.
S: Piney hops. Hint of citrus. Some wheat and yeast.
T/M: Tasty! Light and somewhat buttery. A bit like popcorn. I wonder if there are corn flakes in here. At any rate, the yeast is dry, Frenchy, and ever so lightly funky. Lots of citrus zest in the hops, and a fair amount of bitterness. An interesting, engaging pale ale. The finish is mild and lightly coppery-biscuity.
O: Not an obviously champion, but light and zesty and drinkable all while being worthy of closer scrutiny. I hope to see more beers of this style!

Pours a hazy light golden, creamy lace that dies down towards the end. Aroma is fruity; citrus, pear, bannana and some tropical fruit. Also floral and with a hint of biscuity malt. Fruity taste, mostly alcohol,soaked pear, floral, yeasty, peppery and hoppy. The finish has a slight mineral water feel. This one feels more like a saison. Not the best of it's kind, but solid.

Serving on draft; hazy golden orange pour.

This is a nice refreshing lightly hopped pale ale enhanced with some spicy and fruity flavors contributed by the Belgian farmhouse yeast. The hop profile adds some fresh citrus and light grapefruit pith that balances the yeast profile nicely. Well balanced but a bit watery on the finish.

The beer comes in a hazy bright orange.

The beer is one of the better beers I tried at the brewery. It has a wonderful American hop profile of light citrus of orange and lemons. Then there's a twist in the beer with a Belgian yeast coming in with spicy and herbal qualities.

This is very much an American pale ale, but it is is wonderfully accented with the Belgian yeast.
