4/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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.

Serving type: on-tap

3.84/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.

Serving type: growler

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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap
