Draft at brewery. Pours Light with a faint redness to it, almost like a wine cooler. The aroma is mainly that of your typical belgian. The taste, wow, and not in a good way. Typically I am not a huge belgian guy and this didn't help. I really can't pick out any single fruit it is suppose to have. Not a fan.

Really liked this one at a recent outing at Short’s. Wonderfully balanced between sweet fruit, hop bitterness and aroma. The first sip has a nice bitter bite to it and the fruit quickly follows. I hope this makes it into a bottle sometime soon!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Short’s. Murky light orange-brown body, thin ring of off-white carbonation. Strong citrus rind nose, also sweet berries and peach, but dominated by hops. Weird spicy, acidic body with peach and citrus rind; catty and bitter with cloves and berryskin. Some orange. The bitter, almost astringent finish is a tad off-putting.
