A Belgian style ale that I bought 2 six packs of based on the retailer's recommendation. It has a nice burnt orange color with a heady floral aroma. It has a definite Belgium ale taste but is extremely hoppy. Very crisp taste and a good deal of bitterness. I am not sure that the combination of Belgium ale and extreme hopppiness is my cup of tea.

Golden amber with a white two finger head of foam. Good retention and lacing. Smells of citrus and floral hops with pepper and pale malts for sweetness.

The first thing I tasted was citrus and floral hops with pepper. After a while the pale malt flavor starts to come out, but the hops are dominant. There is some sweetness , but the bitterness overpowers it.

Medium bodied and smooth with average carbonation. The aftertaste is bitter. I think this beer is too bitter for its style, but not a bad effort.
