This is the first time that I like the look of a beer more than the taste.

A- Golden orange with nice cloudy body. 2 fingers of frothy white head that laces very cleanly as you drink.

S- Traditional Belgian yeast smell: orange with a yeast and gum mix.

T- Orange, Gum and a hit of alcohol followed by spice.

M- Creamy and thick that lingers on the tongue and follows with a smooth feeling.

O- I like this beer. I'd gladly have it again.

Poured from the 750ml bottle into a Harpoon tulip glass

The color is a bright yellow/gold with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.

The smell is sweet and has a great floral aroma that pops with a nice fruity nose. There is hints of apple peel, orange, and pear in the aroma with a touch of a Belgian character.

The taste is a bit yeasty with a grainy flavor that pops with some sweet malty flavor. The juicy fruit flavor here is delicious as some apricot, and apple flavor mixes with a tease of white grape. A nice tangy bitterness comes in and melds with the sweetness and is like a double edged sword as the flavor splashes into a poke of bitterness at the end.

The feel of this beer is medium bodied with a great drinkable feel that is a little dry but quite pleasing. It goes down easy and has some nice fruity esters that lingers only slightly after each sip.
