Draft at Jerry’s. Pale yellow with modest white head / Stylish nose of malo, cream, lemon, pineapple, and a little funky earthiness? / Light body, crisp and dry, just a hint of sweetness, somewhat creamy, excellent balance with good bitter finish / Dry, elegant flavors of lemon, pineapple, passion fruit, straw, clove, and coriander / A great, summery (I wish) session beer. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 2, 2013
Almost crystal clear pour with a nice foamy white head. The smell is citrus zest, yeasty spice, and subtle pale malt. The flavor is again spicy and phenolic with a nice bit of orange zest. A bitterness initially hits and mellows out as you go, it is pleasant and floral. It is a very zippy and effervescent brew, would be a great summer beer.

Bottle from the guys. Thanks! Pours a lightly hazed pale gold with a fluffy white head. Nose is really nice. Light white pepper notes with some candy and herbal hops. Clean malt notes. On tasting, lightly sweet with a crisp finish. Belgian character is present but on the lighter end. Some vanilla and pepper. Moderate bitterness. Super drinkable and a great table beer. peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from Zachary on BA - thanks! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a bubbly froth of white foam. Aroms is clean wheat grain with citrus, slight tart, and a pleasant clove and spice aspect throught the finish. Taste has a nice bitterness up front with citrus, clove, some spices I cannot identify, and more bitterness into the finish. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing, flavorful beer. wlajwl (6803) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Aroma is citrus/lemon, yeast and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is citrus (a hint of pulp to it in the texture), slightly sweet malts and a tart finish. Very drinkable.

Another solid offering from Pipeworks- the more I taste from them the more impressed I get. This Belgian ale is an interesting offering, with yeasty and basement aromas on the nose. Pours medium yellow with a nice white foamy top, rather sticky and with great retention. At a sessionable ABV, I could have enjoyed this all evening.

Appearance - Hazy yellow, creamy head
Aroma - Floral hops, orange peel, aloe

This reminded me of Orval quite a bit. The citrus zest really gave off a tropical quality with bitter Belgian influences. Thanks for sharing this one, OmegaX.
Cool brew here. Thanks for the hookup, playa. Poured out a slightly hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is big lemon and citrus, like sprite, with some yeast and bread. Lightly spicy. A bit soapy. Flavor is big citrus, lemon/lime, some light bread and Belgian yeast, spice. Good stuff.
