Belgian Pale Ale
No notes at this time.
look: 2.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
A: Pours pale, almost strawcolored, slightly hazy. The enormous white head is fluffy. There is a sizzeling sound during the pouring. Somewhat nice lacings.
S: A bit sour, but also with the Belgian smells; yeast and spices. Green apples, or perhaps green apple sezt (if that is possible). Citric notes. Hay and stable lures in the back.
T: The taste holds many things that a Saison would; stable, leather and hay alongside with sourness. There is spices and yeast as well as a malty backbone. Green apples and lemons.
M: Aftertaste is sour and not too short. Body is smooth, medium while the strong carbonation with all small bubbles, doesn't offend anyone.
O: Well, not quite a BPA, considering all the Saison-references, but definitely not a Saison; this is too modest for a Saison. It's like a light version (or a newbie-version of the styles) of a hybrid between a BPA and a Saison.

A- Poured with a thin white head, which slowly receded to a hazy layer, collar, and some touches of lacing. The body is a very hazy golden orange color with faint traces of carbonation trickling up the sides of the glass.
S- The nose is comprised of some crisp crackerlike malt, mild impressions of low alpha hops, some Belgian yeast-like aromatics, and little bits of straw/hay. Nicely balanced nose across the board.
T- The malt and hops coalesce to give you an orange marmalade type of flavor. It starts a little on the sweet side and finishes dry with an echo of mild herbal hops. A touch of fruity esters throughout. As the beer begins to warm-up, some earthy phenolics begin to emerge, most prominently in the finish; earthy like dirt... but somehow non-offensive.
M- A medium body with a tiny bit of texture. It's got a very fine carbonation to it that actually comes-across a little spritzy, yet non-bloating.
D- Quite drinkable... overall a balanced beer that still packs a small punch of aroma and flavor... would definitely have this one again.
Serving type: on-tap
