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.

Nonic pint draft at the New Albanian Pizzeria and Public House in New Albany, Indiana. The pour is clear darker golden with a smallish light tan head. The aroma is herbal floral yeast along with a base of cracker malt. The taste is an interesting mix of the herbal floral elements and the Belgian yeast - very much in the mode of the Belgian Single. The palate is light bodied, soft carbonation and yeast finish. Got a bit thin as the beer warmed. Nice.
