Dageraad Brewing Irresolution – Belgian Pale Ale at 5.5% ABV (C$4.05 at Collective, 473 ml, packaged on 28-Nov-2019, acquired 9-Jan-2020, reviewed 15-Jan-2020)

Appearance: clear straw with two fingers of fine white head, good retention and well-defined creamy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: Belgian esters, citrus, coriander, tropical and orchard fruit, herbal, grass. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, slightly dank funky finish. (4/5)

This is the first time I’ve encountered this beer, but apparently it’s been a tradition with them of several years now, intended to use up their leftover hops at the end of the year. Cute idea, even if it would presumably give rise to some potentially odd combinations. And maybe I’m overly suggestible, but it does seem like I’m getting a wide and gradually changing variety of flavours in the aroma and taste as the pint progresses. A little muddled, perhaps, but no complaints here – but then again, I’m also the one who’ll clean out the holiday leftovers from the fridge without worrying too much about what’s side-by-side on the plate. (15/20)
