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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours light brown with a small khaki head. Nice malt notes on the nose. More of the Belgian yeast thing on the tongue along with the strong malt backbone makes for a nice brew. The hoppiness keeps things tight in the finish. Solid.
