12oz can. Rating #35. Hazy copper amber pour with a white head. Sweet fruity aroma, picking up some banana and pineapple. Similar flavor with a little hop bite and a light toast in the finish, nice stuff. (2755)

Seems to be my early summer session beer. Orange pour with white head. Not cloudy, but not clear. Smells of orange, coriander and some light wheat esters. Taste is orange vanilla into coriander and crisp lingering fruit finish. Best thing out of upslope in a can right now.

12oz can from stumpyiliz. Thanks aaron. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a half finger of wgite head. Aroma of wheat and corriandar with a little nutmeg and orange zest. Taste os light sweet. Wheat and corriandar with more citrus. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. The alcohol is well hidden and this would be great outside drinking beer. Thanks!

Can at home picked up at Mile High. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Clove, citrus, banana, biscuit, straw, a touch of bubblegum, coriander, and floral hops in the aroma. Taste is citrusy, sweet banana, clove, yeasty, bready, somewhat wheaty, grassy, and spicy with a touch of sweet bubblegum and lightly bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Tastes like an IPA with Hefeweizen yeast and pretty damn refreshing. I kind-of dig this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a thin off white, poorly retained, head, with minimal lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 6) body....nose is light malts, many light spice tones, including allspice, clove.....taste is slightly sweet, mild allspice, clove, hints of lemon peel, light apple, pear....mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a moderate fizz. This is a pleasant beer, but a bit high in ABV to really meet the style. The aromas and flavors are somewhat stronger and more complex than usually found in a Belgian Pale Ale. It is more of a Belgian Golden Strong or a light Triple. This is technically well made and is a nice beer, but to hit the style it needed less esters and phenolics as well as a lower ABV, This could be done with a yeast change and manipulating fermentation temperature. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

Tap @ Colorado Craft Beer Kickoff Week at Falling Rock. Pours a fairly clear, golden appearance with an off white head. Somewhat herbal, a touch fruity, lemon, belgian yeasty aroma. Flavor is pretty sweet with some citrusy fruit qualities and some sweet malts but nothing too exciting.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
10oz pour at the Rackhouse pub. Yellow color with some bubbles, not many but enough. The smell was belgian yeast. The taste was apples, belgian yeast, and a bit of sweeteness. Overall, not bad and much better than the Pale Ale and IPA they can, those were bad. I may have to actually revisit their canned offerings.

One of my contributions to the night of the tick. Reasonably head, typically yellowy body. Lovely sweet damp yet restrained bananaish nose. Good back bone and very Belgian for an American brewer. Nice depth too. Yes.
