Smell of orange, sourness, spiced yeast and citrus.
Taste is sour orange, banana peels, hop, cloves and herbs. Crisp and fresh. High carbonation.
Short but fruity bitterness.
Very closed to a Belgian tripel. I'd even say it's an American tripel.

Got a 750mL bottle and drank it over the course of three days.

Appearance: Just slightly turbid gold with a long-lasting white head and plenty of lacing. It looks really pretty. More turbid on the second and third pours. There is a LOT of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.

Smell: Big time Belgian yeast. That spicy-banana-raw-peanut smell.

Taste: Belgian yeast still dominates. Some herbal spice. Moderate hop bitterness towards the end and a bit of ethanol peaking through, but less than I would expect at 8.5%. Tastes just as good on the second and third pours.

Mouthfeel: Thin and crisp.

Overall: A good balanced pale ale that puts the yeast on full display, without being overpowering.
