Fruit and malt on the nose. Pours brilliant orange tinted amber with a vigorous, long lasting, 3” white rocky foam cap. A fruity palate starts with orange, peach, and a hint of banana, spice, light caramel, a touch of bread, pepper and a light bitterness on the finish. Medium body and medium high carbonation. A delight to drink.

Delicious Belgian ale. Pale golden color and nice head when poured. Slightly boozy. Crisp with a hint of fruitiness. Definitely worth a try.

The aroma is pleasantly juicy with orange and lime backed by sweet vanilla and some waxy graininess. It pours a large, soapy, eggshell-white head and a clear, light gold body. The flavor is tart, spicy, and bitter, as well as slightly boozy and grainy sweet with only a hint of fruitiness. It's highly carbonated, frothy, and crisp.

The aroma is more pleasantly expressive than the flavor, while the flavor seems to be dominated by the spicy and bitter qualities with some grainy sweetness in support and fruity esters only on a very low level.
