Description 

This unfiltered Belgian-Style Pale Ale pours a hazy gold with a creamy white head. Ground coriander seeds and two kinds of orange peel added to the kettle contribute pleasant citrus notes to its Belgian fermentation character. Lil’ Devil’s light body and effervescent finish make for a refreshing beer that will have you coming back for more.

The aroma is an explosion of stone fruit and tropical fruit that is tempered by a bready, biscuity maltiness. A light orange citrus character emerges as it warms, along with a light spicy hop aroma and a suggestion of black pepper. The aroma displays a layered complexity that evolves throughout the glass. Then the flavor shifts slightly, with a light pear ester and subtle bready and nutty malt character complemented by hints of black pepper and spicy hop flavor. A moderate hop bitterness and light alcohol warming linger into a medium-dry finish. This complex and enjoyable Belgian Pale Ale will leave you wanting another pint.
