look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Light brown with slight orange tint.
Aroma: Nice aroma with a mixture of fruit and floral.
Flavor: A medium bodied, highly carbonated, with a malty, fruity flavor. Fairly light bodied. Lighter than what I’d expected of an ale.
Overall: Light for an ale. Good beer which is quite complex for a light bodied beer. A tad bit carbonated.

Poured from a bomber into a Portsmouth brewing tulip glass.

The color is bright orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice thin lacing.

The smell is a bit floral with a touch of hop aroma. There is also a great Belgian yeast aroma mixed with some slight fruits in the nose. Peach and pear aroma comes out just slightly as a tease for things to come.

The taste has a nice Belgian flavor with some floral hops coming meet you at first. A fruit flavor swims about this beer as it turns to a wet peach or apple skin flavor with hop bitterness returning to reclaim its dominance at the forefront of this beer,

The feel of this beer is medium bodied and has a nice drinkability that gives off a smooth mouthfeel.
