On tap at Troegs’ Beer Garden for Philly Beer Week. Pours a hazy, golden hue with generous white head. To the nose there’s strong Belgian hops, bread-ridden maltiness and plenty of citrus, mainly apricot. A genuine Belgian ale. The barrel also nudges its way in with a hint of basementy oak. Spicy citrus, hoppy, strong alcohol on the finish with prominent, floral, Belgian fruit! Head didn’t last too long and a light lacing on the glass, but overall a delicious brew and extremely refreshing. Thank you, Troegs.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange honey with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of light bubble gum, orange peel, zesty lemon and floral tones. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. Murky brown with a big fluffy head that collapses under its own weight leaving lacy chunks. Nose is yeast, orange mint and rose hips. Crisp and biting with a squirt of hop juice and residual chalk. Taste is toffee, mandarin orange, peach and lemon zest. Grassy finish with doughy drying. Delicious and refreshing. The Brothers really nailed this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ouncer in a BA trade from dashirey.
The beer pours into the glass a hazy golden-straw color with a massive white head.
Aroma is damn good. I just realized this was barrel-aged, and that definitely makes sense to me now. My schnozz picks up bready malts and Belgian yeast, citrusy hops, and oak.
Down the ol’ hatch it goes. Along with the pale malts, there are tropical fruit notes and an estery Belgian yeast presence. Bright citrusy hops, oak, and even maybe some vanilla as well.
Really smooth on the mouthfeel. Medium-bodied with active carbonation.
I know I’m a Harrisburg homer sometimes, but I’ll be damned if Tröegs isn’t one of the best in the business. This one is tasty, drinkable, and even refreshing at 7.7% ABV. Solid stuff.
