3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear orange with a slight earthy amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet citrus with a hint of grassy hops and just a bit of sweet grains. Flavor begins with sweet citrus and is backed by a lot of sweet grains with a bit of belgian yeast as well as grass.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint-size can. Poured fiery medium-orange with a tall, sticky white head. The aroma picked up orange rind and fruity yeast, joined by white pepper and cloves.. sweeter, honeyed undertones.. sweet overall, and fairly enjoyable. The flavor found sweet caramel, crusty bread, and honey at the core, with spiced-up darker fruity yeast laced throughout.. the yeast worked a little too hard in here, but it was still alright.. dry, spicy finish. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate.. again the yeast presence was a little strong.. decent brew.

Tap @ Brewery Vivant. Slightly hazy, orange appearance with an off white head. Moderately earthy, citrusy, slightly piney hoppy, dull malty aroma. Floral, somewhat citrusy, herbal hoppy, belgian yeasty flavor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can: The aroma consists of light orange, peach, Belgian yeast, and faint grapefruit. It pours a transparent amber with a one-finger orange tinged off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. Thereís some spotty webbing left behind for lacing. The flavor starts with orange, caramel, peach, and light Belgian yeast. The finish has light-moderate grapefruit, lighter pine, and a touch of spice. Light-medium boided with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the Belgian characteristics are much more mild compared to other Belgian IPAs Iíve previously had. Itís a decent thirst quencher, but probably not something Iíd look to if Iím in the Belgian IPA mood.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16 oz. can bought on a trip to Michigan. This has a huge fluffy off white head that leaves powdery lacing. The beer is clear amber. I smell pine and citrus hops with some caramel malt and spice. This beer is hop forward especially with that citrus. Floral notes. Some yeast is tasted but it is subtle as is spice. Caramel flavor and some toast. At the finish spruce lingers on the tongue. Good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz Can. Thanks Sean! Give me a grassy waft, a malty undertone and some coppery color. Harken a Belgian IPA? No. Whereís the Belgian? Whereís the IPA? Iíve had American Pale Ales that had more phenols and more hoppiness than this. Instead, what weíve got on our hands is the Worldest Cleanest Belgian Amber Ale. Every so slightly a minty hop finish and a terse Crystal-heavy malt body. No, this isnít subtle and Iím just not getting it, itís missing everything it purports to be.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can
A: spicy yeast and alcohol, toasty malts, American hops that are not well defined-muddled
T: spicy, malty more bready then toasty, again with muddled American hops
Overall the beer is worth a taste, nothing really wrong with it. A nice balance between the malts, yeast, and the bitterness.
