Belgian-Style Pale Ale
Summit Brewing Company Belgian-Style Pale Ale (5.5% alcohol by volume) has Belgian yeast floral and spicy orange zest aromas supported by a whiff of graham cracker malt. It pours hazy orange permeated by streams of rapidly rising bubbles under a 2" off-white to cream foam cap with good retention. It starts mildly sweet with an initially intense orange flavor and then Belgian yeast, graham cracker malt, biscuit, and floral hop flavors provide some balance along with a moderate hop bitterness. The orange returns on the finish. The body is medium and the carbonation is medium high. This is a flavorful, well balanced, easy to drink Belgian pale Ale. I rate it 78.
