Poured aggressively into a goblet this beer has a pleasant light copper color with a nice white head that faded quickly leaving minimal lacing. Smell has some characteristic bready yeast with some sweet floral hops. Taste was really solid, with a great balancing act going on between a nice sweet caramelly malt backbone with clean crisp floral hops balancing it out. The sweetness of the honey was a nice compliment to the yeast strain they used. I usually think of Belgian style beers as being heavier in nature (even the Belgian IPA style), but this felt like a great light summer session beer. Good carbonation levels for the style made this a great one to have by the pool after work. I can see myself reaching for this one often during the summer. It's got a light character like most summer styled beers but more flavor than most traditional pilsners or kolsch beers that you'll find. Flying Dog/Brewers Art came up with a really solid beer in a style you don't normally find. After this one, I'm interested to see what else they might be able to do together.

ST: 12oz poured into an oversized wine glass.

A: Cloudy amber orange with a decent sized head that has alright retention and does not leave much lacing. It has slow carbonation.

S: Honey, sweet malt, and Belgian yeast (there is some bread).

T: This beer has amazing drinkablity; it is very smooth. The malt and honey take over this Belgian pale ale. There is some bitterness and citrus from hops towards the end, but it is not as hoppy as normal American pale ales. It is well balanced though.

M: Medium bodied dry and smooth.

O: This beer has nice balanced flavor of malt and hops. It really is a fantastic session beer. It did not score high on appearance because the head wasn't as large as I was expecting from a Belgian pale ale, and it did not last as long as I expected. However, it really is a nice table beer that works well with food or by itself. It is a great collaboration between to Maryland breweries.

Slightly cloudy amber color with lots of visible carbonation and a big fluffy white head that sticks to the glass and has good retention. Belgian yeast and honey come through in the nose as well as a small amount of barley malt.

The mouthfeel is creamy and smooth up front and then carbonated and drier in the back end. It bookends a less noticeable sweet honey-like taste and really nice, crisp hop bitterness from some citrus hops. It leaves a small barley malt aftertaste in the mouth, but it isn't unpleasant. I'm impressed by the bite from the hops, and the balance of the sweetness. The drinkability is off the charts, and is another reason why this beer is very successful. Overall, this is a pretty good collaboration between two respectable Maryland breweries.

First day it came into Honeygo Wine &Spirits I picked it up.
Appearance is nice, hazy golden with a thin head that laces slightly. Smell is sweet and citrusy. There is a small honey aroma. Taste is smooth and clean. A small crisp bite to satisfy, followed by a sweet malt finish. Overall a great session beer, goes well with food too. Bring on summer.
