Loved the cloudy orange hue of this beer...just beautiful in the glass with a thin but substantial head that yields to a little lacing. Smells of citrus and bread, hinting at the flavor to come.
Mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, and the flavor has a laid back complexity. I agree wtih other BA's that this is not a Duvel or Chimay; however, there's just enough going on in the glass to keep me interested.
The citrus is of the orange-tangerine variety rather than grapefruit; yet there is enough of a hoppy backbone to provide just the right amount of bite. All of this is nicely balanced with a sweetness that gives way to a pleasantly dry finish.
After sampling this and Brother Theloneous, another Belgian-styled offering from North Coast, I have to say that this brewery does Belgium well!
