Pours somewhere between straw and amber. Pillowy white head filled the top of my Duvel tulip glass. Thick bubbly foam sticks to the sides of the glass all the way down. Spot on appearance-wise.

Great aroma. An interesting focus on tropical fruit, with almost a wit-like orange and bubblegum character.

Peppery yeast right up front makes it pretty clear what style we're going for. Malt is actually kind of difficult to nail down given everything else that's going on. Pale fruit, maybe pear, floating around. I find the Nelson Sauvin really stands out, with a clear winey character mid-palate. Finish is continental bitterness.

A nice Belgian Pale with a welcome something something that you might not have seen elsewhere.

On tap at Bar Volo. Surprisingly complex pale Belgian. Funky farmhouse nice smooth sweet bitter onion grassy hoppy spicy honey yeasty -bold and comes through even after stronger big beers up first. Sauvin hop may be there but not featured. Decent for he style.

Bottle shared by Steve, 600ml into a tulip. Wild Oats Series #25.

Darker hazy orange, white head with good retention and a bit of lace. Nose is yeasty, some banana, mild spice and some bright orange citrus. Taste has some bitter citrus character, a spicy yeasty bite and some white pepper. Lighter medium body and good carbonation. Tasty, and having this back in warmer weather would've been great.

4.15/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down slowly and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of Belgian yeast, spices, citrus, banana and a light grassiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a bready yeast, peppery spices, some citrus and banana and a grassy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas. Very refreshing! Another great beer from Beau's.

Bottle acquired as part of the Oktoberfest mixed pack from the brewery.

Pours a sunset orange and fairly clear with a nice light white head that has quite a cap atop it. Some spicy yeast notes behind banana and vinous notes. A ton of character going on in the viscous body of the beer. Spicy pepper, melon, finishes with a lingering light banana / hefeweizen character. Feels heavy and prickly on the palate. Very much like a fruity peppery hefeweizen. Another rock-solid effort by Beau's.
