lovely beer - very cleverly designed by the brewers so that the zesty citrus of the hops links seamlessly with the peachiness of the yeast. there’s nice doughy belgian yeast aromas that mingle nicely with the vanilla of the cascade (im assuming). despite all that hoppiness in the nose the beer is light and fluffy in the mouth, with some maltiness but no malty heaviness, and without a nasty dirty high alpha kick at the end - a tasty combination of
peppery phenols and hop resin to finish. these guys know what theyre doing! reminds me a lot of dieu du ciel derniere volonte - another fruity and aromatic and approachable belgian ipa.
UPDATED: APR 2, 2017 On tap at Local Taphouse, Sydney. Pours a deep amber. Aroma: Wheat, floral aromas. Not particularly aromatic. Taste: Interesting blend of the sweetness of a Belgian beer with the floral and hoppy flavours of a pale ale or an IPA. Mild citrus flavours. Mild sweetness. Easy drinking. Very pleasant, and definitely a tasty brew. whoisghost (193) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 7, 2015
Amber with a thin slightly tan head. Smell white pepper and citrus on the nose, quite similar to a saison. White pepper translates to taste with spicy floral hops and some light sweet malts. Quite a thick body with a real velvety feel. Beer’s ok, at best. Narizao84 (25) - Miami, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Very fruty sweet smell and flavor. Color is nice. Personally not a big fan, but a good beer in taste and flavor

Draught middy size at The Royal Albert Hotel, Sydney, on October 11, 2015.mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
Hazy dark copper to brown color, off-white to yellow head. Malty, grainy, bitter, alcohol taste. Fruity, alcohol aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel, low bitterness. Mild acidic, fruity scent.
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a thin head that holds relatively well. A moderate level of carbonation. An odd mix of a Belgian yeast aroma and flavour with a strong hop punch, typical of IPA’s. Belgian candied sugar and spices mix well with an almost citrus flavour peeping through. A warming alcohol mouthfeel to finish. A very complex and delicious brew

No BB date noted. Poured a cloudy orange amber colour with a one-finger off-white foamy head that diminished quickly to a few bubbles. Laced poorly. Low to moderate carbonation with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of spicy floral hops. Taste initially with a subtle sweetness but it’s really dominated by spicy hops. Light to medium body. A bit sweet with a long spicy finish. varanid99 (1315) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2013
Gold cloudy pour with nice off white head. Big floral aroma, some citrus fruit and malt. Nice sweetish start, slightly spicy/peppery with long bitter finish. Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours a very cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, citrus, fruit, grass and pine with some hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate bitter hop finish. Good stuff. Stew41 (2066) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 23, 2013
Very much the real deal. Spicy malt on the nose is a little reminisce of saison. Carries through to the palate well and hops become more assertive and aggressive. Good length and drive. The spice and pepper is very well handled and quite a highlight. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Hazy copper with a decent, off-white head. Belgian yeast character, berry fruits, caramel and a hint of spice, leading to a dryish finish. Very good.
