3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy orange-gold beer with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly into a thin film. Nose of sour yeast, bitter lemon, and candle wax. Flavor is semi-sour upfront, which grows a bit and then is counterbalanced by a musky bitterness. It has the general characteristics of a Belgian-style ale, but something seems a bit off. Decent beer, but there are tons better than this.

Appearance: cloudy orange gold, short white head, decent lacing. Aroma: yeasty/spicy, with orange, honey, pie crust, wheat, apple juice, banana, and lemongrass. Taste: slightly malty and sweet, with honey, apple cobbler, some tart citrus, and spicy, slightly phenolic yeast notes. Finish: spicy, slightly dry, and with a bit of herbal hops to balance out the sweet and spice. Notes: Very nice Belgian-style ale. Would drink again. Ordered it just for the name.
