Draught at the brewpub. Deep gold with a tall, fine head. Slightly cloudy Fruity Belgian yeast character in the nose, earthy and dry, spicy, citrus, mainly orange, estery, with stewed peaches. Very hoppy and bitter. Dry, a bit harsh flavor, but the fruit is big underneath. Interesting. Rich and a bit heavy, spritzy too. Not perfect—a bit too raunchy, but nice enough. Hope they refine it just a bit.
