look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Orange/light copper with plenty of haze from the yeast particles. White head fizzes up rapidly but descends to a thin yet persistent film rather quickly.

S - Strong belgian yeast and spice notes are prominent. The label led me to believe I would be getting a face full of hops, but that isn't the case. Lots of banana bread, maybe some honey.

T - Pretty tame for a belgian style brew. The hops come through a lot more in the flavor than the nose, which kind of mutes the delicate belgian spice notes. Coriander and herbal notes are most prominent.

M - Really smooth, the mouthfeel really accentuates all the flavors perfectly.

O - Pretty damn good beer. It would make a great session brew when I want something with some serious flavor.

Hazy pale yellow in color. Served in a standard pint glass with about a half inch of creamy thick white head. Copious lacing. Aroma is all Belgian with notes of banana and spice with citrus hops to a lesser extent. Flavor is pretty good and while the yeast is present its not nearly as strong as the aroma. Mild sweetness, bubblegum, lemon, citrus, and some yeasty esters. Lighter body, actually a bit thin. Overall quit nice.

Reviewed from session notes.

A. Medium-hazy golden color with three fingers of fluffy sticky head that stays around for several minutes and leaves generous sticky clumps of lacing behind on the glass's surface.

S. Tons of toffee malt with lesser amounts of pears, spicy belgian yeast aroma, some light bubblegum ester spectrum, and just a dash of alcohol smell.

T. The flavor has some citric orange peel hopping and some banana wheat sweetness to it that I somehow failed to detect on the nose. Besides that, all of the elements from the nose also show up for the role call on flavor duty.

M. Somewhat on the heavier side of medium thickness, but smooth and even slightly creamy in feel nonetheless because of the well-calibrated carbonation levels.

Poured into a Oversized Wine Glass

Appearance - Cloudy Dark Orange/Amber color. Head is mildly foamy and pours around 2 fingers in width with some good retention and decent lacing

Smell - Citrus Hops, toffee, lemon sweet yeasts, and malts. Rather simple, but its easy on the nose and smells quite good

Taste - Yeasts and subdued floral hops with hefe-cloves, bananas, toffee, bubblegum, malts and barley. The aftertaste is dry yet sweet yeasty flavor which compliments the beer rather well.

Mouthfeel - It's a bit on the heavier side with carbonation that is well balanced. It's also got a crisp feel to it when drinking and it goes down rather easy.

Overall - This was an excellent beer with a mixture of different flavors that fell into place very well. Not the best Belgian Ale I've tried but this one is definitely up there!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a hazy pale orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma, orange citrus, coriander, and a nice alcohol presence. In the taste, coriander, orange juice citrus, a small alcohol note and somewhat peppery. A smooth and a medium bodied moouthfeel, with a dry spice with a small citrus in the aftertaste. A bit boozy and peppery, and somewhat all over the place in the taste.

An outstanding (if puzzling) name for a beer, and a brewery I want to try more of after enjoying their Knot Stock and Three Feet Deep.

Beer pours very cloudy into a tall glass, but with a nice head on it. Smell is crisp, with nice fruity and spicy notes. The taste is excellent to start, but leaves a fairly strong yeast flavor at the end of a sip. Hop flavors are not dominant.

A nice American-style Belgian, and at 7.20% ABV is a good option if you want a lighter beer but with significant punch.
