3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large off-white head gently covers the clear copper body. It’s a strong maltiness we’re facing here with potent honey and cereal flavours, mischievously attempted to balance with faint soily and leafy hops. Soft yeast imparted fruitiness hints at fig, grapes and mango all while being quite phenolic. Medium bodied, extremely sweet, perhaps overdone on the candi sugar, even for a Belgian, more hops would be welcome hence the balance suffers.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with medium white head. Has a nice orange flavor. The body is thicker than anything else served here. Has a sweet medicinal finish, there’s a delightful citrus to this beer.

Mildly carbonated, tangerine colored brew. Easy amber malt aroma with some herbalness and yeastiness. Enticing and intriguing. Prominent breadiness with yeasty sourness on finish. The body ends a bit syrupy and the residual sugars clang with the yeast.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity, Belgian spice nose, showcasing the beauty and magic of the yeast strain. Earthy with some biscuity malts and a light bit of candi sugar. Floral throughout and very drinkable, a little on the tame side, but still well done.

Hazed orange, white head. Spicy dried fruit and banana aroma, very yeasty. Flavor follows suit on a base of biscuity malt, lots of yeasty spice and an almost tropical fruitiness. Very tasty.
