32 fl oz bottle. Creamy orange white head. Orange coloured and slightly hazy. Apricot and lychee aromas with a soft sweet background. Distant peppery notes. Apricot flavours and a soft malty taste. Finishes fruity with a light, almost watery, aftertaste.

Bottle from Sean (illinismitty, aka Robby) Thanks man! Pours out a light orange color with a thick white head. Smell is sweet, spicy, and fruity. Taste is sweet, not very bitter, and refreshing. I was pretty much gulping this beer down. It was great. Probably the best belgian ale I can remember drinking. Too bad these arent distributed this far south. Great beer

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a filtered med. amber with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is decidedly funky, brett, with some cookie-maltiness and a slight spicy hop character. The body is med. which was a surprise, I was expecting something more refreshing. The flavors are mild, complex, but mild. The filtering has really negatively affected this beer. The complexity that it would have had was lost in the diotomaceous earth. Finish is med. dry.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Obtained in a BIF from orbitalr0x, this handsome golden ale was well carbonated, and a four finger head crowning above the rim prevented me from emptying the entire 12 oz. bottle into the appointed oversized wine glass. The aroma was spicy and floral with a dusting of yeast. The taste was dry and tart, with earthy yeast funk and spices also appearing in liberal doses. The mouthfeel was a hair less snappy than the mighty Orval. A good Belgian style pale ale on its own merits.
