Tap. The look is orange color, clear, and had an off white head. The smell is real oranges, really citrusy, yeast, nice. The taste is fresh, fruits, yeast, and ok.

Draft... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose offers fruity, herbal, Belgian phenols and esters - light clove, pear and peach. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is fruity, tart and lightly spiced - apricot, white grapes and clove. Finishes tangy with a whisper of clove. Well-brewed, but this style isn’t my thing.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 Sample at GABF 10/13/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Hazed golden color with a medium off-white head and stringy lacing. Aroma of yeast, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a vinous character and flavors of earthy yeast, malt and wheat. The finish is fruity with a yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Dallas Untapped. Orange pour with a white head. Aroma is super boozy fruit and grapes. Taste is grapes, brown sugar, caramel, cinnamon, and sweet apple. Great finish.

Tap @ Anvil. Hazy gold with a white head. Rich and complex with citrus, spice, biscuit and yeast. A bit like champagne on steroids.

Tried this at Mongoose versus Cobra In Houston, TX. Belgian golden strong ale with herbal (lavender and chamomile) and fruity notes. Very tasty!

Cloudy orange-copper with a white head and solid lacing. Aroma of white wine, Belgian yeast, citrus, and an herb garden. Taste is spiced, yeasty, semi-sweet, with a substantial wine-like character. Smooth with a slight bite; well done.

$14 snifter glass at Homefield (knew I should have had the 120)- served a non transparent and very hazy golden orange color, thick aroma of white grapes that were about 2 weeks too young, yeast, some residual sugar, some wheat- not too shabby. Hits the mouth with a light medium body, malt can be found for once intertwined with the yeast, some mild light fruit notes in the middle, finish is mildly cloying. I can imagine the uber elite at a cocktail party sipping this one talking about former glories- and that sure in the hell isn’t me.

Draught. Nose is lightly sweet with fruit notes and spice. Apples, peach, tangerine, coriander, and a wineyness from the grape juice. Cloudy orange with a thin, wispy head that has great carbonation trails. Full mouthfeel, spicy with a sweet finish. Silky and vinuous. Notes of aformentioned fruits, light floral tones (esp. the lavender), and honey. Very clean and smooth.
