Hazy orange amber no head; very sweet aroma hinting of caramel ; flavor is rich malt blended with Belgian sugars, yeastiness, hoppy dryness ; feels medium with nice foamy fizz; finishes dry yet sweet.

The nose is sweet and belgian yeasty but with a decent hop content. In the mouth it really comes across more like a Belgian pale. The bitterness mixed with the highly attenuated yeast makes for a mean finish. I think it’s mislabeled style-wise but a really good beer. I can drink a few for sure.

Can pour. Slightly spicy on the nose. Pours a nice classic Amber. Smooth but flavorful. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz. can purchased at Beer Store, Nashua for a price of $2.25. Mostly clear Amber color with fast dying head in a snifter. Aroma shows a mild Belgian yeast with the pine hops and hop oil I tend to find in Six Point brews.

The flavor has a base of caramel/ bready malts with the pine hops completely over running the light amount of Belgian yeast. I almost get the yeast flavor but then the pine hops kick in and that is all that is left after the swallow. The body is on the very thin side without any yeast present. I get what the brewer is going for ( a hoppy Belgian ale) but how can you have that if the hops over run the little bit of yeast that is here? Meh

crossovert (8496) - Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2015
355ml can. Ligh amber pour. Smell is pungeant with booze, spice, and herbs. Flavor is somewhat fruity, caramel sweetness, some toast, some rubbery spice. This is pretty ho-hum stuff and not really sessionable.

12 oz can. Aroma: malty and skunky, with hints of grass, caramel, and grapefruit. Taste/Palate: crisp; starts sweet; finishes bitter.

Poured from a can. You can really smell the fresh hop in the aroma. Flavor has a bit of the Belgian skunk to it at first, but it is very light. Has some barnyard, clove, and grass to it. Finish is crisp and clean.

PapaSkeetSkeet (983) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Cool can-art. Beautiful amber with 3/4-inch buttermilk-colored medium-coarse head that fades at a moderate rate. Aroma is light citrus: lemon, tart orange, some lime, some floral notes, hints of pine and spicy yeast. Body is medium-medium-light weight, oily-gritty, with moderate, medium-fine creamy head that has medium-light burn. Flavor is floral, some orange peel, a touch of lemon, a light honey sweetness. Tastes like a Belgian session-IPA, which is a welcome style. Yum!

malrubius (1960) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Can from Meditrina. Reddish copper clear with lasting head and lace. NIce citrusy aroma with mild raw honey. Medium toasted honey and peachy fruit sweetness with spicy assertive hop bitterness and medium dry finish. Medium body and lively carbo. Very good.

Clear Amber with fluffy head. Nose is odd, hoppy, Belgian yeast, dark malts, odd minty note. Taste matches, it's a Belgian but with the wrong kind of hops, which leads to an odd herbal/minty taste much like ommegang hop house, which I also didn't care for. Not great.

From the 12 fl. oz. can with a Best Buy date of 26 Sep 2015. Amber-copper pour with tremendous, foamy cream colored head. Great clarity. The aroma has a decent enough mix of pale malts, apple, pear, vague spice, and grassy hops but nothing outdoes the other. It does not have that "Belgian" aroma. The body is light to medium. The taste also has a moderate pale malt character with a bolder bitterness than I expected given the aroma. Not bad but nothing extraordinary.
