16oz can into glass. Pours a clear amber. Thin head and fast disapating lacing. Aroma of awesome citrus melodies, reminds me of alot of my favorite iPad, namely foundation epiphany. Love citra hops, love. A red malt presence tones this one down, but the aroma stays frontal into the taste, with hops, melon, pear, juicy mango, and a red amber backbone. This is great, and the moderate abv helps accordingly also. Really enjoying this one.

On tap at brewery vivant. Hoppy sweet and malty all in perfect increments. Looks great, smells a little weak. Good palate, overall a great offering from a very underrated brewery in Grand Rapids.

Pour from a 12oz can. Clear brownish amber orange with dense off white head. Powerful aroma of grapefruit, mango, green fruit with a little resin. Taste is caramel malt up front with a grape fruit / watermelon undertow with an emerging agile hoppiness of tropical fruit and citrus at the end, lingering crisp clean citrus after the swallow is complete. Maintains a sweet caramel malty backbone throughout. Oily and slick palate. Really rich in flavor, complex and well balanced.

Can. Light toffee malt and strong pine/spruce aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Lightly sweet toffee malt, musty yeast, and mildly bitter pine flavor. Body on the lighter side - nicely drinkable.

Pours a clear red with a decent eggshell head that settles to a ring and leaves some soapy, hanging lace. Nose involves rustic fruity Belgian yeast, cherry, pine resin, citrus, datebread. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, quite oily and slick, fair action, with a lengthy dry yeasty and hoppy bitter finish. Interesting brew, lots going on. Layered yet really drinkable. I kinda wish there was more Belgian influence, but this is otherwise a nice hoppy red.

16oz can. Pours a dark ruby/caramel with a two finger, cream head that sticks around forever and leaves a great coating. Aroma has a mix of resin, citrus, spice, a hint of bubblegum, and a touch of tartness. Taste is interesting. Orange citrus, pine, candy sugar, and some spice. Medium body with a medium-high carbonation. Clean in the mouth and pretty refreshing. Overall tasty and interesting. Kinda a mix of a Belgian wit and an American pale ale.
