A: The pour is amber in color, perhaps a bit near copper, with a lasting off-white head.
S: A pretty typical nose of orange peel, white pepper, bready malts, and yeast. There are some floral hops and mildly spicy Belgian yeast esters, but nothing too intense.
T: Starts off with lots of bready malts, almost wheat, with quite a bit of orange/citrus zest. There’s a touch of spice esters to provide a bit of complexity and certainly some peppery yeast notes.
M: The body is medium and the carbonation is a bit on the high side.
D: Not really sure what to think about this one. It was pretty decent, but nothing about it was all that great/impressive.
