A: Very interesting orange color. Almost red. Very pretty.
S: At first, the scent was similar to a Belgian Trip. I was a little confused from that. After I tasted the beer, the scent was more understandable. Fruity, citrus-like, but absolutely the scent of a good amber.
T: This beers tastes like a common witbier. It has a sour peach finish that lingers in my mouth. It's a little bitter. Doesn't really settle well, but when you initially taste the beer there is a "wow" factor.
M: Very light. Smooth, with some sting. Dry. Very dry.
OVERALL: I like the beer, but I think I only like it due to the fact that I didn't expect this whole Belgian spin on things. It's a wheat beer with lager tones. Very odd. Very original.
NOTE: Live review.

A nice beer they call an amber beer, but really it's a Vienna style lager that is only "amber" relative to BMC stuff.
It's a light copper color with a nice little white head. Could use more foam, but it was poured to the brim, so have to factor that in
Aroma is sweet and malty, with a slight zip of hops on the end. Doesn't seem malty until you take a swig off of a saison or something.
But that maltiness isn't overwhelming in the taste. Nice balance with that and noble hops, grassiness. Easy drinking, nice light weight feel and good carbonation fizz. Would go well with many menu items, or as a beginner in a flight.
Serving type: on-tap
