COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
: Sweet Orange Peel is combined with Belgian two-row malted barley and Munich malt to create another Belgian classic. Tettenger and E. Kent Golding hops are added to round out the finish of this beer. The aroma of the orange peel remains without sugary sweetness.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Easy drinking IPA. Yellow gold. Not insane Belgian yeast presence, but very refreshing. A slightly hoppier version of the GG, really.

Tap at Dragonmead. Orangey-golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is actually spicy. A bit of light fruit over some spicy yeast. Light clove and banana along with a touch of orange peel. Fairly dirty fusels on the finish along with some lingering earthiness. Meh... starts out okay but finishes with a miss.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap at the Dragonmead Brew Pub. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some fruitiness and I was not really getting too much more. Tastes of the same fruitiness with some citrus. On the sweeter side.

From the Belgian list on tap. Golden. Citrus flavors. A nice little ale. Not as good as Absolution, but good.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Tap: thick cloudy dirty amber color. Slight spice in the aroma. Some banana in the flavor. With a spicy finish maybe pepper?

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2004
On tap: Hazy orangish-amber with a white head. Very similar to the Guinivere’s, just not as grassy in the finish, which makes it a tad better.

Pours light orange with light tan head. Aroma is of citrus, orange and mild yeast. Flavor is malty with mix of sourness, banana, and alcohol. Very unique Belgian Wit.

flemdawg (531) - Naples, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Hazy orange color with a white head. Yeasts and sweetness as well as fruits in the aroma. In the taste there was a bit of sourness, but then sweet fruits with yeasts and esters. There was biterness in the finish.
