Draft at The Pour House in Westmont, NJ. Pours a dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger off-white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lace left behind. Aroma dominated by estery Belgian yeast and pale malts. Surprisingly not very hop forward with slight floral and pine needle character. Lots of bread, light fruit and biscuity malt in the nose. Medium bodied and again, surprisingly lightly hopped considering the deScription. Subtle floral hops presence along with some faint citrus peel followed by pale malt, bread and light fruit. Nicely balanced and easy to drink but nothing out of the ordinary.

Rated on 9-29-2012 at Dash-In (Fort Wayne, IN) This draft beer has a small head that is fully lasting, transparent reddish-orange body, very little carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus, pine hops, earthy, yeast, and caramel malt. The flavor is citrus, pine hops, moderately bitter, yeast, earthy, and some caramel malt. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. For this beer’s style, it is not overly hoppy tasting. It is very easy drinking and worth trying.

Ruddy brown, small tan head. Mildly hoppy aroma, flavor of yeast, honey and fruit. Smooth. A little boring.

Draught. Hazy dark yellow. Tart pear and light pepper. Flavor is full strong vegetal hops, poached orchard fruit, big but balanced. Feel is thick and alive. Nor super into it but pretty well constructed.

08/16/13 at Bovine’s restaurant, SC. (On tap). First thing I noticed was the great smell of hops! The taste was as good as it smelled. Poured a nice amber color with a little foam on top. Defiantly a good choice!
