Color is dark orange, but not quite to copper. Yeast and orange dominate the aroma. Sweet malt with a toasted background. That pleasant funk from Belgian yeast. It’s almost like orange butterscotch. Hops only show up in the dry, slightly bitter finish.
This doesn’t have great reviews elsewhere, but I’m baffled. I think it’s delicious. drsordr (2794) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 24, 2013
Apparently his beer shows better on draft Han in the bottle. I had a draft at Flipdaddy’s. nose o typical Belgian bubble gum, banana, pear and malt. Taste similar with a stronger malt backbone. Brigadier (3725) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2013

Coming from Triton my expectations were not all that high. As a result it was nice to run across this balanced, very drinkable release. It’s not a showstopper but at about $8.99 a six pack fairly priced for a daily drinker.
Aroma / Appearance - The amber base doesn’t look too exciting at first. A fringe of bubbly head traps peach jolly ranchers, pears, and apples in a sweet combination.
Flavor / Palate - Honey, peaches, and melon soothe the palate. A gentle transition to a mild finish tickles the tongue due to lazy carbonation. The biggest flaw might be some harshness in the finish. All told though this is a beer that is somehow better than the sum of its parts.
12 ounce bottle. A big golden hued head fills my Spigelau glass. A honey gold beer under it. Sticky lacing. The foam seems to take forever to subside. The aroma is "Belgianesque." Yeast and fruit notes. The first sip brings a sourness that is a negative. It comes across as a sour ale. Compex fruit and caramel flavors with yeast and pale malts. It brings a little bretty funk. This could be a saison but has more barnyard funkiness. I am not sure it is supposed to be a wild ale but it has ended up being one. And not a bad one at that. But my guess is that is infected. tjthresh (1875) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Decent clove nose. Murkey golden straw color. Same spicy clove flavor. Fuller body. I like it, but don’t know how often I will come back to it.

Pours murky, medium brown with minimal head.
Scent is subtle...yeast, spice.
Taste is fruity...sweet/tart.
Very crisp and fairly dry...
Not bad at all. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2013
5oz taster on tap at Cincinnati Beer Fest. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Good bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, crisp, sort of tingly carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate bitter taste. Kind of metallic twang to the flavor. Some light floral, lightly herbal hop. Light spiciness. FLavor is way wierd, and no way of indicative of a BPA besides light spice. No belgian yeast character. Besides that, not awful. Some decent citrus hop character. bagalagalaga (161) - Indiana, USA - MAR 9, 2013
This has the same weirdness as some other Triton beers I’ve tried, in that it has a slightly tart/vinegary taste at the end. Maybe just no one in town stocks fresh enough six packs of this stuff? Not terrible but when you drink a second one the tartness starts getting annoying. Hartung32 (252) - Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2013
An interesting beer; not something I'd usually drink. A drinkable pale ale, with the familiar smells and tastes of Belgian beers.
