Cloudy golden color. Crazy hop aromas. Fruity, fresh hop aroma and flavor. The malty sweetness is countered by the spicy flavors of the yeast. This beer is a very complex blend of American hoppiness and old Belgian ales. I really like this beer.

Full on opague light orange, very swift;y dissapating foam cap. Peacy, clean and sweet. Creamy and oddly cheesy. Finest, thinnest grainy esters. Gulping foamy carbonation. Not terribly hopped. Finish wholesome and rich, astounding for the ABV but lacking a full on grating Belgian punch.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a tulip and a snifter the day I had it.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy orange color with a thin white foamy half fingered head that dissipated within less than a minute in both glasses.
The smell had some light notes of peach, mango and tangerine and had some light Belgian spices arrange themselves neatly in and out on over top of the previously mentioned fruits.
The taste was a good combination of spicy to sweet.
On the palate, this one sat at/about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed pretty good for the Belgian ale style.
Overall, though I thought this was a saison at one time in my life, I see that it is not, well, honestly I’m okay with that. Straight up Belgian Pale Ale or Saison, either way this is good to me and worthy of having again.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
07.06.2014, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Big creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, hops, citrus peel, leafs, lawn, mango, yeast, light malts, hay, grapefruit, hints of passion fruit. Taste is slightly fresh and dry, citrus peel, yeast, leafs, hops, alcohol, citrus, grass, tropical fruits. Longlasting bitterness, slightly harsh boozy mouthfeel. It was actually very nice the first 4-5 sips, and I would probably have rated it at 4,2 based on that. But then a very powerful harsh citrusy vodka-like boozyness started to punch through, which I didn’t like at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Clear, orangey, deep golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairy lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Citrusy, fruity hoppy aroma, notes of mango, passion fruit, peach, mandarine. Taste is initially moderately sweet, fruity, notes of mango and peach, later with spicy, yeasty overtones; in the dry finish the fruity notes come up anew with power, oust the yeasty touch and remain long time; some hoppy bitterness in constantly present. A fruit ’Bomb!’

Citrus and sweet fruit on the nose, with just a little pine. Light fruit on the palate, hints of mango and grapefruit at first, finishing with a little hop resin. Very dry on the palate for the style.
