The beer pours very little head but what head does come out is white and creamy. The beer itself is a clear dark orange color with shades of brown. The smell has a strong sweet mandarin orange smell with bits of peppercorn but not much else. The taste is very similar to the smell with strong sweet orange notes with peppercorn and Belgian sugar. The mouthfeel is smooth with biting carbonation. Overall, a decent beer and make but could be better.

Serving type: bottle

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

Clear gold to amber color. Good head initially, but it settles to rim bubbles. 10% lace on the glass.

Very mild smell. A bit earthy with some Belgian yeast thrown in.

I'd put this in the Belgian pale ale category. I do not taste any orange, although there's some pepper that shows up in the swallow. Lingering aftertaste of dry, bittering hop. Full bodied with a lighter than average carbonation.

Serving type: on-tap
