Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Belgian characteristics dominate, with spicy yeasty notes, peachy and flowery notes, and just a hint of citric bitterness. A bit of a mess, but still enjoyable. Also, this is not an IPA.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
hazy gold, oily white ring. Heavy orange soda nose, srsly slice, singular and sweet. Heavily carbonated sugar bomb, lightly old with hints of cardboard oxidation. A heavy mouthed mess, too sweet and carbonated for ANY nuance.

22oz bottle. Really great hop character on this one, with floral notes combined with stone fruits (lots of peach). Also flavors of honey and coconut. Really nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brilliant golden colored pour. Steady stream of bubbles continually rise to the big, puffy white head. Plenty of lace left behind. Smell is a typical wit; spice, malt, yeast. Some notes of lemon and grains of paradise really stand out. A slight peppery note that reminds me of barrels. Taste is a very hoppy front followed up by spice and wood. The pepper notes return on the tongue in the finish. Interesting beer and not too shabby.

Bottle. Pours golden with small white head. Aroma is spicy, almost a bit fruity, not much hop presence. Taste is some Belgium fruitiness, again not much hops. This one is a bit interesting. Aftertaste is clean, refreshing.
