a beer that combines earthy and spicy tones from the yeast with a slight orange note contributed by the hops. Tastes great.

750ml bottle, shared by beerpig317. Totally hazy orange yellow color. Thin off-white head. Thicker ropes of lace. Some burnt sugars in the nose. Light metallic, caramel malts, light citrus hop. Smooth, lighter kind of soft carbonation. Good herbal character to it. Light bitter, moderate sweet. Medium-plus body. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Solid belgian ale. Smooth and easy drinking. Liked it more and more as I went.

Nice belgian style IPA. Good fresh hop flavors but i wish it had some more alcohol and bit a little harder.

On draft at lost dog in McLean. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Yeast aroma. Kind of a hopped version of a true Belgian ale. Flavors are of grassy and resinous hops. Decent.

750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy burnt orange with ample white head that slowly dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; Belgian yeast, hops, and spice. Nice on the palate. Good beer.

Bottle from Dad. No bottle date but worried I let this sit around for too long. Oh well. Pours a light copper/dark gold color with big fast creamy frothy head. Lots of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Aroma of earthy yeast and hop, orange, pine, dirt, hay. Flavor is earthy yeast, straw, and maybe some stale hops. Probably let this sit a little long but not bad. Yeasty farmhouse funk. Easy drinking and plenty of carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a frothy, soapy off-white head about four centimetres thick and literally a zillion small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of fresh grassy and herbal hops, yeast, pepper, herbs, barnyardie funk and some nice mellow malt - very nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Strong dry and grassy hop flavours up front with some mellow yeast, a touch of light earthy malt and a bit of biscuits tucked inside some herbs. Aftertaste shows a very light and herbal note, some light hop bitterness, but mainly a dry, airy and subtle flavour - nothing overwhelming and nothing too great, actually. Overall, a decent beer, but not showing enough complexity on the finish to be great - the smell is there and complex, but dies after the nose. After sampling too many good belgies in ~2 weeks in Belgium, being home for less than a week made me underappreciate this beer - it’s good, but simply doesn’t compare with real belgies. Still nice to try of course, despite the high price. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Columbus Circle), New York on 12-July-2013 for US$12.99 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2013.
