Served on tap at the brewpub. The appearance is a hazy yellow. The flavors are very mellow, bready, a touch of banana. A bit boring.

It’s a very striking, beautiful golden-orange color. The body is nice, the hops are still a bit more than I like, but tolerable. I really wish that American craft brewers didn’t feel the necessity to do that - but these are the times we live in. Just the same I’d get this beer again.

Very hazy yellow orange color with a small white head. Very cereal wheat flavor. Pretty full flavor for a 4% beer. Light body with medium carbonation. A fine beer for sessioning, just not too special on the whole. Pretty damn inoffensive though. P.S. there is no way this is a pale lager, unless I am crazy/

On tap at brewpub
Hitting up Sportsline Pizza for lunch I started with a pour of this fine session beer. A few of these would pass the afternoon nicely. You could even alternate in a few of the other lighter styles available that day. Personally I think more brewpubs and breweries should try their hand at this style of lighter fare.
Aroma / Appearance - Lazy and hazy the orange body was mellow and light. Sweet with a combination of orange and melons it had only a faint alcoholic tang.
Flavor / Palate - Fluid and satisfying, the mouthfeel was a bit like orange creamsicle. There was some hoppiness in the finish but not enough to stick to the throat for more than a second. A good interpretation of the Belgian abbey style I think this is a positive market for brewpubs to experiment in.
