This is a top 5 beer for me. Loaded with citrus and tropical fruit throughout. I love the belgian ipa style amd this is an excellent examplem. Hides the alcohol very well. I could drink this all day. If you like citrus ipas find a way to get your hands on this beer.

I rated this one relatively high. I want to note (more for my future self) that I feel like this rating reflects my opinion of this beer considering what it is meant to be. There is a welcome sweet Belgian yeast flavor.

Side note, I dropped the appearance as I wrote this because I noticed some cloud and sediment. It still looks very much how you want it to look.

Enjoyed 12 oz. on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Arrived in a tulip glass, a cloudy orange-yellow with a light dappling of white bubbles. Smells like underripe bananas and orange rind, well-spiced with phenols that run the gamut from allspice to light bandage, with a honey-sweet undercurrent. The first sip reveals a thinnish well-attenuated body with some residual sugars nevertheless providing a "coating" mouthfeel. Maybe just a hair chewier than the average tripel. Rich bready malts, honey, pears, sour lemon, allspice, and the aforementioned green banana all greet the drinker. This is less clean than a golden ale like Duvel and conveys a tripel-like sweet booziness, some yeasty funk, and a good measure of spicy and medicinal phenols. Finishes citric and tangy, with some pine-like hop flavors popping in to say hello. Very enjoyable Belgian that falls somewhere between a few different styles. Sort of comes across like a weightier, far more flavorful Leffe blonde.
