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.
