3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at pita kabob in Visalia. Warming spice aroma with distant autumn vegetable. Beautiful late sunset deep orange with moderate white head that quickly dissipates to a bubbly white collar. Taste is orange and kumquat with slight persimmon. Thin mouthfeel surprises with a spike of spice in the mid palate. Altogether interesting if not outstanding.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, poured into a snifter. The warm aroma has notes of apricot, nuts, a bit of a sour citrus, and a light biscuit note. The hazy orange beer is topped by a dense, white soap head that keeps a moderate amount of retention and leaves a mild lacing. The taste is a medium sweet and bitter balanced by a medium light sour note. The texture is oily with fuzzy carbonation. The medium body is, up front, a bitter sour citrus note with a toffee and light bread backing. The finish is a notable nuts with secondary oak, toffee, apricot, and nut flavor. The aftertaste is dry with bitter citrus peel, oak, apricot, and dank herb. It lingers a moderate length of time with only a light intensity.

Slightly cloudy deep golden with a thin foamy white cap. Lovely aroma with slightly sour tropical fruits and melons combined with a gentle Belgian farm funk and apricots. Smooth and delightful flavor with sweet pale Belgian malts mixed with sweet tree fruits and subtle melon and tropical fruity tones as well, a little fruity sweetness and Belgian funniness at the finish. Really pleasant and complex.
