An excellent take on a "mixed bag" style of beer. Pours a fairly clear light orange color with a small delicately bubbly white head that fades fast. Leaves some filmy lacing on the glass.
Aroma is really prominent. When the beer is cold, it is primarily citrus hops, not a generic citrusy aroma....more like someone squeezed a tangerine slice into the glass. As the beer warms up, the Belgian yeast takes on a more prominent role from a background smell to an aroma that holds its own with the hops.
Flavor is more of the same...hops forward while cold. Yeast takes center stage as it warms. The yeasty flavor is like that of a good Tripel...almost a ripe cheese type flavor. There is good bitterness throughout but the strong tangerine flavor fades into a more generic citrus flavor as the beer warms.
Mouthfeel is rich and soft. The yeastiness balances the bitterness. A very enjoyable beer and a good example of what this style can be.
