4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a murky orange color with a BIG fluffy white head that leaves lace as it descends from the rim of my glass. Hops...wait a minute hops? Yes, hops is the initial aroma of the Belgian Ale! Nice aromatic citrus hops mixed with some fruity Belgian notes. Medium mouthfeel. Smooth, orange with a nice little citrus hop wallop in the back end that lingers. This is a very nice beer!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A cloudy apricot color with big fizzy head and decent lacing. Smell is light with some citrus and Belgian yeast character and spiciness. Taste is somewhat citrusy with earthy and spicy notes. Has a plastic taste that I don't like but little bitterness. Mouthfeel is soft and light bodied with high carbonation. Was disappointed, may have been old.

A little hops and orange, but very faint. A bitterness comes at the end but is cleaned away by the intense carbonation. Finishes dry and clean. Watery mouthfeel.

750ml in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeasts, citrusy hops, and some sweet, caramel and pale malts. Flavor the same with a nice balance of everything. Average texture. A good beer that blends hoppiness with Belgian yeast characteristics well.
