22 oz bottle pours a cloudy orange.amber color with a slight white head and some lacing. Smells like an IIPA. Tastes like an IIPA. Aroma is full of cararmel malts and floral hops, without the Belgian yeast I was expecting. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky, body is medium, and carbonation is average or below. Taste is initially sweet until the ho[s kick in for a quick finish which is drier. Alcohol is well hidden. A very good beer no matter how you classify it.

artemb (596) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUN 7, 2016
Clear amber, white head, average retention. Aroma: sweet citrus, grape peel, rotten orange. Taste: bitter and sweet Flavour: bergamot, caramel, toffee, sweet fat cheese, sweet caramel and malty notes. Long zesty-sweet finish with prominent alcohol. Overall impression: Grog with lemon. It seems more like imperial IPA then like belgian-style beer. Not sure what is "belgian" here. Good and not an easy drink.

jsporrer (582) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Pours a clear copper with a thick off white foam. Very light carbonation with plenty of lacing. Semisweet citrus aroma with some notes of toffee and candy corn. Light syrupy texture. Started fairly smooth with a sweet malty taste. Finished with a touch of bitter citrus peel and some warmth. Reminds me of Crunkle Sam. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a hazed amber apricot with a medium sized white head. Fruit on the nose, a little bit of sweetness , citrus hops. Medium body warm and boozy, almost a bit of grapefruit and even a hint of the city with a lot of warming alcohol and sticky malt behind. Finishes with a slow grapefruit bitterness and more alcohol.

malrubius (2518) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Opaque golden orange with white head and lotsa lace. Tangerine orange pineapple mango floral aroma. Sweet tangerine mango with some breadiness and orange citrus finish with some spicy bitterness. Medium full creamy wheaty (?) body. Nice soft carbo. Wicked fucking delicious. Might even be better without the orange peel. Not sure that’s necessary.

Bomber shared by Chalumeaux. Thanks, TJ! Pours golden brown with a big off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, citrus. Flavor is caramel, banana, clove. Grapefruit and orange citrus in the finish. I usually don’t care for hoppy Belgians, but this is decent.
