First pour of the growler into my Stella chalice yeilds a very bright and ambient yellow-orange under a inch of suds that resided into a thin layer of icing. Small spots of lace and more than decent retention as the glass empties.
The aroma is very impressive ranging from sweet tropical fruits to pleasant candy sugar, some wheat also in the aroma as well as a big hint of spice.
Taste is not a let down. The aroma leads into the taste without any disapointment - belgian yeast, the mangos, oranges, lemon, kiwi and various other sweet fruit and a slightly bitter hop presence that is spot on. There is a lot going on in this beer that I just can't put my finger on.
The mouthfeel is slightly creamy, on the lighter side of medium-light bodied with a nice easy-going carbonation.
Overall this beer is very good and enjoyable, I'm glad I didn't overlook it like I did yesterday and grabbed a growler for $15, which was a few ounces over the 64oz marker. I would purchase again. Cheers

Poured from bottle into snifter
Appearance- pours a hazy gold with a short, creamy, bubbly head which recedes quickly and leaves some minor lacing.
Aroma- faint spice and citrus, bready, yeasty
Feel- medium, oily, little carbonation tingle, and finishes crisp but very smooth
Taste- taste follows the nose, to a degree- less malty, more spicy/citrusy with a hint of banana towards the end
Overall- This being my first beer in the Belgian style realm, i liked it a lot. It's not that heavy of a beer and very drinkable. That being said, it isn't too complex, which I believe makes it good for those who want to get into Belgian style ales.

Got to try on tap fresh from the brewery the other day and I thought it was very nice. The appearance was a hazy yellow with a decent head. The smell had a lot of wheat and banana to it. The taste was similar with great notes of banana, and even a little bit of spice. The feel of the beer was a little light but refreshing in the heat. Would definitely get again.
