Draft at Standard Market. Slightly hazy amber color under a thin. lacy head. Citrsuy hop nose. Taste is very hop forward, with a strong bitterness more like an Anchor Steam. Bitter aftertaste with just a hint of grapefruit at the back of the palate. The lighter alcohol lets it go down nice and easy, and leave just a hint of Belgian aromatic pale malts at the end.

It has a medium / light body with light sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with minor toast, crackers and light spice. The finish has some bugs showing. Nice.

ARH (1117) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap, poured into a shaker. The mellow aromas of orange zest, spices (specifically coriander and clove) and a light tropical note come through on the nose. I pours a hazy yellow-orange color with a big dense white head that reduces down to a medium ring with a dusty surface and a medium-light, messy lace. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The slick, medium-light bodied, zippy beer has a dry citrus flavor with a zesty, spicy finish. It’s dry,and clean with light spice, grapefruit, and resin aftertaste. It’s a touch astringent.

TheAlum (6942) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (Geneva, I’ll). Pours a nice deeper amber hue, a bit darker with decent haziness. Frothy whitish head atop is a firmer layer, nice stick around and lacing overall. Aromas are a bit dry and hoppy, nice zippy Belgian yeast element, crisp bready malts. Florals meet jabs of generic citrus rind, grass and some herbal hop character. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body with some decent dry and bitter hops jabs. Florals and earth meet a touch of sweeter bready body into the middle. A touch carmelized, gentle citrus and florals meet a jab of citrus. A bit piney, earthy and bitter into the backend. That’s weeter middle is a touch firmer, some fruit and carmelized malt elements strike slowly. Nothing overdone but definitely there. Finish is a bit dry, prickly bitter hops are earthy with florals, gentle pine, a bit of almost minty cool bitterness, herbal with pine, a bit of powder. Nice. The sweeter middle throws me for a bit of a loop, some touches of fruit, mellow Belgian yeast as we press on. The hop character is dry, earthy and clean but lacking some character. It compliments the beer well though.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 9, 2014
12oz bottle pours with a deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a thin off white head. The aroma offers up yeasty Belgian spices and various light skinned fruity esters that have a banana, apple and a sliver of green bell pepper like fruity hoppiness. The taste starts with nice hoppiness that’s even with hop flavor and hop bitterness that picks up herbal, grassy and vegetable like fruity notes (what?). It then gets into yeasty Belgian spices mixed with fruity notes. This is a nice hoppy brew where the hoppiness is more forward than the Belgian yeasty spice notes and that works for me.
