3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head left, orange-ochre colour, fully hazy. Citrus, orangepeel and spicy, if restrained. Slightly sweet-bready, with a fruity rounding (citrus, melon). Bit of caramel, but with a (noble) hoppy edge. Warming up, meaty esters from the yeast. CO≤ is very obvious. Medium bodied, yeastfeel. Nice, if not very consistent: the beer pulls in all directions, arriving not really anywhere.

Liht orange in color, but crisp green apple, with a hint of banana in the flavors. Rather sweet and yeasty. Not much hops, rather sweet and not much standing out. Not my favorite DC Brau.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is a hazy, light orange hue with a half inch of white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the snifter. The aroma consists primarily of hops and yeast, with additional notes of grain, citrus, and bread. The flavor is OK. Nothing really stands out and takes charge. The hop character is underwhelming, and the beer is generally unexciting. Yeast and citrus flavors are there, but donít implore me to drink more. Iím hopeful this beer undergoes some improvements in subsequent batches.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz can. Pours a hazy golden yellow color with a thick fluffy and sticky white head. The aroma has a crisp, refreshing quality with some notes of lemon and banana mixing with some sweeter, bready malts. Taste is zesty lemon and banana flavors up front, with the Belgian yeast spice and some crisp fruits showing in the end. Itís a little dry in the finish. The sweeter, bready malts give it a nice base. Lower carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel.

On tap @ the brewery. Poured a magnificent orange with a huge white fluffy head and notable lacing. Aroma is Belgian yeast, floral and citrus hops, and banana. Enjoyable yeast flavor introduces itself to the palate followed by clementine and lemon zest and a hint of tropical fruit flavor. Smooth dry finish. Extremely drinkable pale ale with wonderful aroma.

Decent. The nose is yeasty with some notes of spice and a touch of banana. Golden with a foamy white head. The taste is balanced leaning toward yeast flavors and a balance of malt and floral bitterness. Clean and carbonated.
