O’Reilly’s, Hilton Head Island, SC, USA.
Corked and “Clamped” rather than Caged, 750 mL bottle.
This is a special beer indeed, that I simply classify as a great, “Light Belgian Pale Ale”. By that I mean that if such a thing existed as a “light” Belgian, I beleive that this would be it.
HUGE, and I mean HUGE, frothy head, with massive retention and beautiful lacing against the backdrop of a orange/golden body.
Nose is honey sweetness that gets more intense as the temperature climbs.
Taste reflects the depth of a fruity Belgian Pale (yes I know this is French but there is a yeast component that seems to make this typically Belgian) against a massive drinkability that seems almost non-alcoholic in its ease of consumption. Don’t get me wrong, the alcohol is there at 8.00% ABV, but it is shielded and delevoped by the sweetness and the rustic ambience.
Immensely drinkable, this is truly a delicious offering.
