COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Honoring traditional Belgian processes, Or de Belgique is the "Gold of Belgium" made here in Minnesota. Bursting with tropical fruit flavors and rich aroma, this sophisticated and balanced beer is the perfect beverage to accompany a special night out. Lending a touch of sweetness to acidic or bitter dish and cleansing the palate between bites of rich meats and dessert.

750mL bottle. Poured medium golden with a sticky, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up tart lemon zest, white pepper, floral notes, and cloves over clean bready malts.. a touch muddled, but nice. The flavor found tart lemon zest and white spices on the tip of the tongue, with clean bready malts and a touch of honey.. spicy toward the back, with a trail of peppery alcohol down the throat.. tasty. Medium-plus bodied, spicy and engaging.. Good stuff!

Large bottle purchased at Haskells. Tulip glass. Really attractive amber-orange color. Lots of sweetness. Impressed by the Belgian style representation. Smell predominately syrup-like dark fruit. Really enjoy the finish. Almost a vibrant Belgian strong ale. Refreshing, tart, good. This MN ale could hold its own at a festival in Brugges.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2014 Such a big orange color! Vigorous hop presence. Moderate bitterness infusion. O.k. I hadn’t heard of this brewery before now. (on tap at Winter Beer Dabbler, January 2014). // Bubblegum and grassy notes in a slightly hazy yellow beer; sweet, quite sweet. (At Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014)

arminjewell (8673) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Pour on tap at APN, hazy orange pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of sugary citrus, orange, hints of grass, touch of earth, hints of white fruits, slight notes of red fruits as well in there. Taste is a mix of red fruits, slight spice, grass, orange and grapefruit notes, hints of grain, caramel, and toffee notes, finishing fairly sweet, sugary. Way too sweet.

Cloudy dark yellow color with a fizzy head that turns filmy & higher in volume with a high amount of carbonation. Lacing retention is also pretty good. Aroma of lemon zest, cloves, bananas, cracked peppers, and pale malts. Flavors of yeast, cracked peppers, lemony zest, bananas, cloves, bubblegum and malts. Body is moderate in weight, lightly carbonated and rather smooth. Great tasting beer!
