On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is solid with lots of bright, citrus pines and tropical fruits with a nice Belgian yeast note that accompanies the hops well rather than taking the forefront. A light spiciness, some resins, and a grainy pale malt backing. Flavor is lighter with grainy pale malts, spicy yeast, and some grapefruit pines up front before the Belgian yeast comes in a bit more with a few tropical florals. A light pepper towards the end as this finishes dry and spicy, but somewhat fruity with a subtle Belgian yeast note, a light earth and pine, and a lightly sweetened grainy pale malt. Light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Light, clean, easy drinking body with a somewhat crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent BPA. Really nice aroma and an enjoyable flavor. I like how the Belgian yeast doesnt dominate. Finishes a bit quick, but not bad.

On tap at the brewpub - Light amber with a thin white head. Nose is juicy citrus with a bit of garlic, light peppery note. Taste is much the same, with more onion coming through. Reminds me of Bedlam.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - OCT 9, 2012
On tap at Brew Pub. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange color with two fingers of white foamy head. Aromas of spices, hops, fresh picked citrus and some florals along with some underlying earthy tones. Taste of bread, yeast, and toasted grains, with more restrained hop flavors. Citrus hops come up in the finish contributing a grapefruit bitterness in the finish along with some tangy yeast. Ample carbonation and lighter bodied.

Has a really nice citrus hop scent and pours a nice golden color with a lacing head. Taste has a nice bitterness, I think get an off after taste from the Belgian mix. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Sample from beerfest. Poured a yellow color with a nicer two finger off white head. Aroma was citrus notes, with bread, some lemon zest, and banana notes. Flavor was very malty, grass, lemon and citrus. Medium body light carbonation. Easier drinking beer, but still very good.

Poured from tap at revolution. Pours a nice clear color with a small head. Nice and aromatic with aromas of spices, hops, fresh picked citrus and some florals. Medium bodied, but lacking a mid and finish. Nice flavors of spicces, citrus and some hops. A nice and refreshing brew. Its lacking a slight bit, but no complaints for what it aims to be.
