Common Ales: White Bluffs’s Devil’s Nectar

White Bluffs brewing Devil's Nectar can and beer in a glass on counter

Nose is very sweet. Pineapple is the thing that comes to mind. Definitely a surprise for a pale ale, to me. The beer is really bright, so visually I wasn’t expecting something so fruity.

This flavor carries into the finish, which is just straight up orange. Again, sweeter than expected, with a final taste that does move towards pith.

This wants to put the flavor profile of a hazy into a pale ale. While I’m not upset at that, the finishing bittterness really doesn’t work for me. The Devil’s Nectar isn’t too sweet but the final flavors I pick up turn me away.
