Sample pour. Just what you’d expect from a Belgian ale. Yeasty and oranges.

Much more bitter than I expected (and not in the classic IPA way). I was really hoping for something more along the Belgian sweetness meets IPA.

Pours a clear orange with thin white head. Not over carbonated, a rarity for flat earth. Aroma is fruity and sweet. Flavor simple and crisp.

Great beer the aromas are sweet with wisps of caramel and bread. Very pleasant aromas to a nice drinking beer. Amber in color, pours with a medium head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. Medium sweetness from the malt, almost no bitterness and zero sour taste but almost salty. Light body with a thin texture average to lively carbonation. Short finish.
This is an easy drinking beer great taste, aroma and overall drink-ability.

Bottle from a trade with CLevar. Pours hazy dark burnt orange color with off white head. Fruity, Belgian yeast aroma with some caramel. Sweet fruity and doughy flavors with bubble gum and minimal hop bitterness. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Thanks Caleb.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oh my first gusher. Quite the experience it was too. Popped the cap and out launched a foamy mass of beige foam leaving a nice sticky orange soda-like liquid all over my floor and cabinets. The aroma of this explosive beer is the traditional estery belgian yeast strain with notes of orange and slightly sour hints. Taste is relatively bland for a BPA. Some orange notes up front with a distant tart note. Medium mouthfeel with little carbonation, oddly enough. If the bottle hadn’t exploded, perhaps I would have given this a higher score.

Pour is clear dark orange with a soapy off white head that fades to nothing , but a thin collar. Aroma has some dark fruit bubblegum and some cinnamon and figs. Taste is bready and spicies with some fruit and bubblegum. Palate is thin and slick with a chaulky finish. Pretty nice.

Lovely estery nose, some cherry, bubblegum and honey. Clear light copper, sticky dense white head. Full bodied, strong yeast character with fruity notes and a long toasty biscuit finish. I forget who sent this to me, but thanks!
