Bottle. Pours clear, golden yellow, with no head, just a little lacing. Smells sweet. Taste is sweet, a little sour, like fruit candy. A lot of flavors going on at once, not bitter at all. Will definitely buy again.

A decent Belgian pale. Pours an ok orange. Smells herby and hoppy. Taste is basic but tasty, with some herbal and floral notes, and a slightly hoppy finish. Had on tap at Bottle Revolution in Raleigh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
