Draft Belgianfest. Orange copper pour, thick white head. Peppery, yeasty, hoppy aroma, dry citrus peel. Slightly funky herbal and earthy hops, a little citrus peel, spicy yeast, fairly dry with a lightly sweet malt presence. This is a beer that I could drink a lot of, nicely balanced.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 7, 2010
On tap at SoDo location. Pours orange gold with a foamy beige head and clings. Very floral aroma. Faint taste at first but the bitter finish lingers. Donít think this is meant to be classified as a Belgian--itís something like an American imitating Belgians imitating Americans...
