Springdale Secret Shields Reverence Series Dry Hopped Belgian-Style Pale Ale

This ode to a Belgian-style pale is brewed using all Pilsner malt and Belgian yeast and then dry hopped with Tettnang and Crystal hops. It's a bit out-of-the-box, but successfully so, resulting in a pleasantly dry and spicy pour that shows a nice hybrid of Euro-American character. The nose leads with scents of lightly toasted grain, stone fruit, clove-spiked orange and earthy hops. Those characteristics follow through to the plush, creamy mouthfeel, with more bread dough, citrus rind, candi sugar and a touch of bubblegum flavor. A grassy, earthy bitterness graces the close, leaving your palate begging for the next sip. Lauren Buzzeo
