Sample @ Oskar Blues in Asheville during RBWG. Hazy amber with a small head. Loads of active Belgian yeast on the nose. Fruity esters dominate. The taste has some new world hops. Mild cantaloupe and citrus fruits. Somewhat bitter, mildly sweet. Medium body, very active carbonation. Not my thing, but decent.
