On tap @ Avery. Pours an amber orange appearance with a light orange/tan head. Sweet, apple fruity, pineapple, light Belgian yeasty, light caramel malty nose. Quite floral, light soapy, and an amalgam of fruits in the Belgian ale taste. Light soapiness and flowers on the aftertaste.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2011
On tap @ the brewery. Golden amber in color, pretty bubbly, small head. Aroma is sweet yet floral, with a touch of pineapple. Taste is pale ale centric with a herbal-sweet addition, somewhat grainy as well. Not terribly sure how to describe it accurately. Flowery but not bitter, and a tad too dry. Great carbonated mouthfeel, but overall not my thing.
