I like this beer. Strong...yes...but no over hanging alcohol taste.
A: Nice golder color..not too much head or lacing
S:Corn/malt...not a lot of hops smell. Sweet with citris
T: corander and orange peel...sweetness of the tripel sugars..a little malty hoppy after taste
M: smooth...not to heavy..not to light
O: nice beer. good food beer. Hot day you will want something less complex and not as heavy...but with a meal...meats and cheese...yes it would do nicely

Appearance - The color of this Belgian style ale was that similar to a shandy, with the brightness toned down a notch or two. The color is was a plus for me. Virtually zero head even with a hard pour 1/2 way through. More bubbles than most beers appeared at the bottom - Overall slightly above average apperance.

Smell - Has the typical smell of a Belgian style ale. Strong and intriguing. Look and smell has a summer style feel so far.

Taste - Upon initial sip, the first thought from my cranium was "ahhhh..refreshing." That surprised me a bit as I expected the normal "bite" and very strong flavor of other Belgian ales. It had a bit of fruitiness which stems from the orange peel, further adding to the summer feel.

Mouthfeel- Refreshing and unexpectedly smooth. Goes down easy my friends.

Overall - Great Divide is one of my go to breweries, if you know what I mean. You at at the store and desire to treat your palette to a new taste. Nothing stands out to you, therefore, you purchase a brew from a maker you have experienced joy with in the past.

This is a good brew. It is not my favorite from Great Divide, but good nonetheless. I would allow my senses to experience it again. It is slightly different than other Belgian style ales, more of a summer feel as I have mentioned but it is not too much different. Drink on your porch at sunset for best results. Until Next Time
