Clear gold with orange hues and a small white head. The aroma is mainly Belgian yeast esters and spice, with an underlying mango and citrus hop notes. The flavor is quite nice. There is a nice biscuity malt note, some caramel, American hops, and Belgian yeast. Well balanced all around. Very tasty.

The aroma has bready malts, and some sweet citrus, floral hops. The appearance of hazy golden, orange body, with a firm white head. The taste starts out sweet from flavors of caramel, fruit and some spice. The hops presence is strong for the style and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet. Light body, with a good amount of carbonation sensation and a low alcohol presence.

This canned brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body semi-transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was musty and mild hop. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mildly bitter mild citrus mild hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

IslandHaole (1301) - Misawa, JAPAN - JUN 12, 2017
Clear medium golden color. Interesting aroma, has some sourish notes as well as a touch of wit, with banana & cloves. An odd mesh of flavors, sweet malts up front, followed by the tangy wit flavor with a crisp bitter follow. Too busy for me, a beer that isn’t sure what style it is, tries to be a few at once and doesn’t quite nail any of them.

Single 12floz can (COD 12.13.2017, $1.50/unit), tulip glass. This is a great looking Belgian pale ale; deep golden haze and a sticky frothy white head. Old World yeast and New World hops compose a floral, soft citrus, and citrus zest aroma. Palate presents greats balance, and feels lighter than its 6.8% ABV. A very good all purpose beer with mild funk, pummelo, toasted bread flavors.

jsmerig (1719) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Pours a crystal clear yellow with a white foamy head. Great lacing left on the small 5oz glass. Tasted at Yard House outside of Chicago Aroma is light and fruity with a sweet passion fruit note. Taste is lightly sweet with a mango note to it. Being a wheat beer, it doesn’t come with tremendous hoppiness. Instead its nicely offset. Smooth and refreshing - reminds me of Pyramid Apricot Wheat

3.4
thegreenrooster (4626) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 8, 2017
Pour is a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is like candied peaches. All candi sugar and peaches. Flavor is fruity with more peach and some elderflower herbal-ness. A little dash of coriander or orange peel would really make this great. It is fine as it is though, plenty fruity and refreshing.
