BOTG# 29! I'm an animal! Thanks to Courtney at Crafting a Nation for this one- my first every Upslope beer.

Poured from can into Brooklyn tulip. Pours a super cloudy orange color. Cant see through it at all. Not much head on this. Looks nice though. Smell- coriander, cream, this smells like dreamcicle popsicles! Some vanilla as well. Taste- huge orange presence, nice hop bitterness on the back on the throat. Borders on being overly sweet, but the vanilla and coriander flavors come back together. For 7.5% this is amazingly drinkable. Nice mouthfeel. Overall, I could see this being a sneaky high abv alternative during the summer months. Well done.

Fast growing and fast leaving white foamy head. Very little lacing. Brew is very cloudy (almost a wheat look) orange.

Huge banana nose. Upslope nailed the Belgian aroma, but where's the funk? Tons of cloves too.

Very weird aftertaste, highly metallic*. *For the record, I'm not a believer that cans leave metallic flavors behind. High carbonation and high abv, heat is very traceable. Flavor is of thin cloves and heavy banana.

Hum. An interesting brew. Can't say I was blown away, but can't say I was disappointed. I know UpSlope can do better yet, I've had their "better". This brew is a *slight* mess.
