3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from the can a deep orange, with a light haze and a tall, dense off-white head. Aroma has a strong orange citrus nose with a light grassy kick and a sweet malt backbone with some light yeasty esters. Flavor starts off with a strong, bitter orange peel flavor with some some light grassy hops notes. Later a sweet malty, light yeast ester flavor creeps in with a slightly watered down hops finish. Body is light with low amounts of carbonation but enough to maintain the head. Overall the nose on this brew is fantastic. The flavor gets a lot better as it warms. Well balanced, flavorful and a perfect summer time brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can purchased at Lalo’s Mexican Restaurant located in the Midway airport main terminal boulevard food court in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a clear golden copper with a one inch light tan head. The aroma is fresh grass, floral hops along with a spice Belgian yeast. The taste is the nose, nice clean mix of the hops and the Belgian yeast notes. The palate is medium bodied with active carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. Nice, happy to find this at Midway (this place also had Revolution Anti-Hero IPA).

Pours a golden orange with a white head and nice aroma of fruits, citrus, and peach. Taste is well balanced, nice hoppy, citrus, peach notes with malt, caramel, and light spice leading to a dry, fruity finish. Very drinkable, tasty pale ale

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can. Pours a golden, burnt orange color with a loose white head. Nose is absolutely enchanting with deep citrus and a predominance of peaches and mangoes. Taste is deep citrus and full of nothing but delicious flavor ( can you tell I like it ) . Finishes on sweet citrus notes, dry and a true winner. Quyaff Score 9 / 10

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can (2013 assumedly) in a trade with theAlum, drunk on 2/16/14
Slightly hazy orange-amber beer is topped by a small white head that recedes to cover.
TROPICAL FRUITS. Yes, this is nice. Pineapple, mango, kiwi, that sort of thing. Lush, green hops and citric notes follow up the tropical fruit notes and a lightly sweet crystal malt note provides balance. Medium high to high strength of aroma, no flaws and just pure, aromatic hoppiness without all the acidity.
Hop bitterness, incredibly juicy fruit hop flavor and almost the perfect amount of pale malt sweetness collide on the palate. Soft texture and light but engaging carbonation keeps it drinkable, though it does get too sweet by the end of the glass. Bubble gum and light mango esters build on the finish and it gets a bit wit beerish but the hops are done so well they could almost put arsenic in this stuff and it wouldnt matter. Need to try more from these guys....

Growler pour into a globe glass. Beautiful honey amber orange color with a minimal white head. The nose is full of sweetness and clean hops with a little yeast complexity. Taste is definitely on par with the Belgian style pales with a unique cleanliness but, very tasty; close to sessionable. All around a solid Belgian pale with character from a quickly rising brewery in Chicago. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz Can : Pour is murky medium gold with a hint of amber, I suppose. The head on this is two fingered, fine bubbled, and off white. The nose is juicy fruit, caramel and florals really - it reminds me a bit of their hibiscus product - which isn’t exactly a great start. This brew has a nice clean feeling initial, light bittering hops, lemon grass presents itself, with more stark florals and the crystal presents itself- but frankly this is barely belgian for me. Bread, Caramel, Grass rounds it out at the finish line. I wouldn’t seek it out - but it was one of the better brews sitting at my local grocery store...

3.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a medium orange, maybe tangerine, clear with a solid head from a can into a DFH IPA glass. Full aroma of banana, citrus, with a touch of alcohol, exactly like a belgian should have. Flavor is not as full, and has some odd finishes like water, and a bit sour. Also sweet.
