3.63/5  rDev -5.5%

Orangish amber pour. Fruity, orange marmalade, Belgian yeast character, floral fruitiness. Mild hop bitterness in finish. Aromas of some fruitiness and I was not really getting too much more. Tastes of the same fruitiness with some citrus. On the sweeter side like many of those found at dragonmead.

Appearance: a reddish orange color. small foamy head only when poured vigorously and with an off white color. fairly opaque

Smell: strong belgian yeast character. sweet fruits. on the weaker side

Taste: starts of with a belgian yeast character that gives way to a spicy hop and a sweet fruit. good balance

Mouthfeel: too heavy to be as drinkable as it should be. slight bitter

Overall: a good lighter belgian that is tasty and refreshing. it could be lightened up a bit to add to drinkability.

On tap at the Dragonmead Brew Pub.

Poured a medium amber color with a small sized white head. Aromas of some fruitiness and I was not really getting too much more. Tastes of the same fruitiness with some citrus. On the sweeter side. I had to reach deeper to get anything out of this one.

This quality Belgian offering is light, a little sweet on the palate and has a bit of a spicy hop bite throughout. This tastes like a hoppy little brother to the Final Absolution Trippel.
