3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A deep orange body with the yeast making it hazy. The off-white head is fluffy and lasts well. Nose has estery yeast notes, citrus fruits, spices and rye. Taste is quite bitter and somewhat harsh with a lingering bitter finish. Soft carbonation and medium palate. Decent hefty belgian with unusually heavy, almost IPA-like, hop bitterness. Nice and drinkable.
