12 oz can. Pale, semi-hazy straw; fluffy white head. Fruity, grapefruit/orange, pineapple, pine, grass, very light Belgian yeast, biscuit grain. Medium+ bitter finish, fairly dry, and pretty clean/crisp. Mouthfeel on the thin side, and not a lot of carbonation. Reasonably good; definitely not a standout.

Golden glow with an airy head with big foam bubbles - which then dissipates quickly. Aroma of belgian spice and slight citrus hops. Taste is upfront belgian spice, slight citrus hops, not much malt flavor. Light on the tongue. Not much carbonation. Okay beer.

Draught at LB. Very nice and lightly hopped beer - not really Belgian. But those Nelson Sauvin shine.

Mild foamy citrus flavor with a slight slight hoppy flavor that builds slightly with a mild almost sour finish. At Reingeist brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

GnarlyGnome (803) - Fairfield, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draft at the Jungle Jims tasting bar: Pours a nice light golden orange with a bright white head. Aromas are nice and fruity... citrus. Taste is pretty sweet, but balanced with the bitter citrus bite...good. It’s a bit more watery than I would hope for...but like I said... good.

Pours gold with white head and no lacing. Aroma of citrus hops. Taste is the same. Feel is little thin, but still very good.

mikesaum (654) - Newark, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2014
pours orange with a medium white head. Aroma is VERY fruity, kiwi, mango, maybe passion fruit, lots of fruit character. Taste took me by surprise? its a blast of fruit all the way, no hop bitterness or anything, full fruit slam. Very good brew.

Had this one on draft at the brewery in Cinci. A delicious Belgian pale ale, slight citrus aroma with a strong belgium malty tasting profile. A surprisingly great Belgian pale ale. Wow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Draft at Pint Night at Jungle Jim’s-Eastgate. Pours a semi-hazy pale golden color with a small white head. Notes of lemon citrus, pineapple, stone fruit, bready and pale malts, mild spices, and just a bit of cookies and crackers. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts fruitier and sweeter and becomes drier. Nice hoppy Belgian.
