Solid belgian that is pretty sweet with some citrus but doesn’t disguise the alcohol too well.

Draft at Piece. Pours a hazy deep gold, minimal head. Nose is pretty nice, candied orange and white pepper, nice fruity quality to it. Fair amount of banana and pretty clean and fresh. On tasting, moderate sweetness that dries out, banana and citrus, dry bitterness and pretty clean overall. I really dig this one!

Flavor starts with light citrus, light fruit and a hint of spice but finishes slightly bland with a grain note.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich hazy glowing golden hue, touches of orange, some gentle lightness, small ring of white head sits atop, dies, laces small. Aromas are touches of banana, flaked wheat, and doughy bread. Gentle honey, some clove, and some grass. Sweeter overall. Initial is sweet, offering orange and bread dough, sweet apples, gentle bread, touches of pear, a faint kiss of citrus. Gentle grass and dry hops. Middle offers sweetness, offering more orange peel, lots really, with a sweeter malt body overall. Finish is lingering orange juice, gentle sweetness, dry florals. A bit tame, as far a s Belgian, preaching lots of orange, lighter on the spice, but a firm ABV strength. Mellow sweetness pervades and lingers. Front gives a pleasant kick that I wish was sustained..
