On draught at Woodlands Tavern. Pours a mostly clear orange color with a medium foamy white head that evaporates slowly. Sticky sheer of lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit, yeast and mild hops. Medium body with flavors of fruity yeast, hops and a bit of booze. The finish is fruity up front with an earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Golden orange with small white head. Aroma citrus, yeast. Medium body. Light carbonation. Flavor is pretty bitter up front. Citrus hops predominate, some bready yeast. There is also a more candied non-hop citrus flavor in the background which lends a little sweetness. Very good.

Pours a very light orange. Has a soft bite to it with plenty of hops all around. The Belgian side of the equation is less than expected but I enjoyed it and I hope to try it again to get a clearer feel for it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Translucent golden, large frothy white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Soft mealy dank nose.   Not hoppy, and not terribly bright in terms of Belgian aromas.   Smells very American in its mealiness.   Bright mealiness on the tongue, thankfully not too heavy.   Little hop bite that comes across more of an astringent bitterness than hops.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Strong straw notes, which is perhaps why the astringency.   I can see the strong blonde, but IPA?   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a soft hop bite, but moreso a bright mealiness that has some astringent aspects.   Not as much of an IPA as it is a strong blonde ale.   Tiz okay.
