Pours a pale hazy with a medium cremay white head. The aroma is sour spicy mellow and sweet. The flavor is belgian funky, crisp, slightly sweet, and a tad spicy. Smooth on the palate. Tasted at the Summertime Brewsfest, need to do it from a bottle.

Its has a lot of spices and orange flavors. The palate is rough texture. Malts and heavy with the hops are very herbal and spicy. This actually tastes like a imitation Belgian ale but its a very good imitation

The aroma is yeast, malt, fruit, and spice. The appearance is hazy gold with an average. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is pretty smooth. Pretty much everything about this beer is a good approximation of a true Belgian.

Garden fresh yeast and fruit aroma, smells like your walking down the isle of a tropical fruit market,near perfect blend of fruit esters with the German hops and barley, smooth and just teasingly sweet. The beauty of Belgium yeasts has seldom been more elequantly displayed Thanks Kingpin

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy medium orange body, medium off-white head. Herbal, toasty nose, rather dry, with medicinal notes and strong spicy esters. The crisp, tightly covered body was pleasantly light yet complex, with crackery, bready notes and grassy hops in addition to the floral, spicy yeast characteristics. Well-done.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750ml caged and corked bottle. Served in a tulip. This ale poured a clear golden color with a large, foamy, beige head that slowly faded away. Some sticky lacing was left around the glass. The aroma was made up of orange, bread, and also some light alcoholic notes. The flavor consisted of citrus, bready yeast, light alcohol, and also some grassy hop notes. The mouthfeel was full-bodied with a good dose of carbonation. This was a decent representation of a strong Belgian, but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to find it again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle and served in my NB worthy glass: Initial pour is clean and golden with a lasting foamy white head and good lace. The aroma has notes of dusty and floral fruity yeast esters that display apricot and banana character along with some grassy and mineral vapours. The taste is nicely not as sweet as I feared with a grassy bitterness and a cleansing alcohol presence. Minor fruity sweet and herbal character at midesection. The finish is astringent and woody dry. The mouth feel is sprite and lively with a dry alcoholic finish. It will be interesting to see how this ages. For now it is a tad too sharp and aggressive, much like a young Duvel.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a good sized white head that lasts leaving good lacing. Aroma of pilsner malt, banana, citrus, yeast, and floral hops. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness and light alcohol warmth. Very good.
