Reviewed from tasting notes. A spicy, malty orange nose with a little Belgian barnyard and a suspicion of smoke. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head that produces good lace. On the palate, citrus and melon, rich malts, over ripe fruit and moderate bitterness with long lingering slightly bittered malt after tastes. medium high carbonation, medium full body.

I enjoyed this chilled in a tulip at Federal Taphouse on tap.

The color is a beautiful golden with great clarity and thin white head comprised of compact beads with lac that clings in a wavy pattern. The smell has a nice amount of fruit esters of yeast with slight banana quality with gentle toasted malt aroma and subtle spice odor. The feel is spicy with medium high carbonation and low sweetness with gentle woody texture with mild alcohol as it finishes bone dry.

The taste has a mild spice flavor up front with a tropical type dried fruity flavor with a woody dry earthy and nutty malt taste with light sweetness after the swallow. This beer was one that just did not do it for me in overall enjoyment -not the belgian style I was looking for perhaps -not bad but nothing about it stands out, worth a try I guess.

The funk threw me off at first but grew on me by about hallway through the glass. Spices are quite prevalent, low alcohol is kinda nice as there is no boozey taste whatsoever. Good for what it is.
