Can from Total Wine poured into a glass. Orange-ish, hazy amber with bubbly head, spritzy carbonation and a hint of citrus in the nose. Taste was at once citrus hops, but I sense some orange or orange peel as well. Perhaps the can color (or perhaps it's really there). Regardless, not sure why everyone wants to put an orange slice in an otherwise decent, drinkable Belgian pale ale. This one never quite got there for me, taste-wise; and I wouldn't buy it again. But it paired well with lunch and would likely be worth trying on tap, just to be sure.

Very cute can, does a good job of skirting bs MLB rules

Solid Belgian PA pour: translucent amber, fluffy white head. Could easily be mistaken for an an APA.

The aroma is clearly Belgian, though brighter than most pales brewed in Belgium. The yeast profile is spice but somewhat muted, and the malt takes center stage with big nodes of toffee, biscuit, and caramel.

Tastes like it smells: light spice from the yeast, a variegated malt profile, and then a nice, dry finish of old world hops. There's a tiny bit of cereal at the very end that just seems a little off, but overall this is a good regional representation of a Americanized Belgian Pale, in the vein of Fat Tire.

EDIT:
After several sips, my expectations adjusted and the cereal finish actually began to compliment the beer.

Extremely refreshing Belgian pale ale. Decent hop presence, found there to be equal malts to provide a very balanced brew. Worth seeking out. On tap at the Brewers Art in Bmore.

Best by May 5th.

The colour is gold. An inch of foam that seems to be long lasting.

I get some spice and yeast and a candi sugar like sweetness in the smell. Maybe some grassy hops.

Quite sweet from the candi sugar/caramel malt that the yeast is bringing. Spicy with some cloves hints of banana. Hops are way dialed down. Again, perhaps some grass.

Mouthfeel is fine.

No indication on the can that this was a Belgian Pale. For what it is, it's very good.

This is an interesting pale ale with beige lacing and a melange of earthy hops and wild yeast in the nose. Light and delicate in the body which is nice but does expose a touch of metal after the initial noble hop note crests. A little strange, but very quaffable. You could do much worse on a hot summer day at the beach or a barbecue.

Copper color unfiltered, slightly hoppy aroma. Pretty solid pale ale not too hoppy or malty
