On Tap at the Liar's Club. Not very much carbonation. At first the spicy and floral flavor intrigued me. As the glass was winding down I couldn't help but notice a Red Bull style aftertaste. Would probably not have again.

Yellow with large head. Nicely phenolic. Some citrus. Mild bitterness. Some hop flavor. A bit thin. Reminds me of a slightly less hoppy version of De Ranke XX Bitter.

A pale clear golden color with nice carbonation sparkling in my glass. A sour floral aroma with some citrus. The same for the flavor but with spices. A bit bitter and astringent.

Medium gold color. Small head. Aroma is malty and slightly yeasty. A medium bodied Belgian ale. Flavors are fruity, orange and citrus. Very clean. Hides the 8% alcohol very well. Yeasty, malty and citrusy. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

A golden color with a small amount of white head. Smells yeasty. Tastes like orange peels with a side of yeast. Not a great beer, could be one of the worst I had at the pizza port belgian fest.
