What the brewers say

“Belgian-style ale where apricot and lemon flavors mingle with fresh-cracked pepper and citrus notes. With a light dry finish, Songbird is gentle on the palate, soars with flavor, and is totally crushable.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruity esters up front and light aroma overall. Slight juice note as it starts to warm. Wonderful pale malt characteristic. High esters of orange with a slight lemongrass. Very clean and bright aroma.”

Flavor: “Light sweetness up front with a touch of pear and lemongrass. Moderate spicy notes that are balanced with the sweetness and carbonation. Aftertaste has slight spicy bitterness and lemongrass notes. Malt flavor is clean yet pale, with slight Pilsner characteristic evident. High hops flavor of lemon and slight orange. Balance is really wonderful on this beer as the style of the yeast characteristics meld well together.”

Overall: “Spiciness and fruity esters are well-balanced with a moderate carbonic bite. Hops are nice and spicy without being too bitter or lasting into the finish. Very balanced and straightforward. Great beer.”
