3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a large white head.
S: Very lemony with plenty of yeast to go along with it. A nice combination of citrus peels and a light floral hop note. It’s fairly bready with some other sweet malt notes such as a touch of cracker. A light spice, perhaps some apples.
T: A bit more bread than on the aroma with some yeast and maybe toffee. There is a lot of citrus character, particularly lemon, with a mild grass note. Not much bitterness, but a lot of sweet fruity esters.
M: A bit on the light side in body with a medium carbonation.
O: Kind of funky for a Belgian IPA, but a lot going on and some nice flavors.

Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Hazy orange ale with a huge, rocky, white head. Fantastic retention. The uber fruity aroma is quite simply a terrific medley of tropical and fuzzy fruits. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. Outstanding balance is provided by equal amounts of fruity bitterness, sweet maltiness and fruity-bready yeastiness. Just a touch of saison yeast spiciness here. Finishes lightly fruity with lingering, gentle bitterness. Bottle courtesy of dmschefke!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Possibly the best beer ever brewed by New Holland- either intentionally or unintentionally Brett infected with great dryness and complexity.
Pours significantly better than the other beers on tap today with a massive, rocky beige head that leaves full sheets of lace. Nose is sugary peach, fresh tangerine, and a good wallop of fresh spearmint. Floral Brett and sweaty funk come through in the nose. Taste is very dry and extremely effervescent with sharp cedar and mild acid. Full doughy malt and biscuit comes in the background for malt backbone. Excellent stuff. Sort of like an Orval clone.
