No head really on a murky orange and golden body with some lacing. Aroma of juniper, fresh flowers, orange peel, Belgian yeast and some candy sugar. Well the flavor is a little sour up front but smooths out quickly and finishes slight tart and mildly sweet. The one tastes like one of those multi fruit minute made fruit juices. Very tropical with mostly pineapple and tangerine with some peach. Belgian character is understated. Medium to thick body and moderate carbonation. This one is pretty unidimensional and hardly Belgian. This series has disappointed me again.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a hazy, dark copper colored body. The head fades quickly and leaves little lace.

S - A fruity aroma of orange, clove, and banana backed by toffee malt notes.

T - Thick malt up front with pithy lemon and clove. Some pepper and more lemon in the middle. Finishes with pepper, clove, lemon and some spicy hops.

M - Medium-thick body, moderately high carbonation, and a somewhat malty finish.

D - Flabby and muddy, the yeast character is pungent but not particularly good. There is both a lack of crispness and a somewhat harsh bittering component to this beer. I'm not sure quite what they were hoping for here but they don't seem to have pulled it off.
