a cloudy honey-like pour, orange-yellow in color with very minimal amount of head which dissipated to only a slight rim of carbonation. smells grassy, spicy of pepper, saison style belgian yeast, lemon zest. the taste is funky up front, citrusy yet bready... then settles into a very traditional belgian wheat flavor. bready yeast is very present. medium in body, average amount of carbonation, pretty refreshing and the abv is very well hidden.

a nice easy drinking beer, with a lot of complex flavors entering your taste buds. very big change of pace from the 3f brews i've had (very hopped up ipa's and stouts), but another beer style nailed by this brewery.

Poured into a snifter.
A - Pours a clear light orange with a small white head.
S - Banana, clove and Belgian yeast, very inviting.
T - Very earthy with notes of pepper, banana and clove.
M - Dry with significant carbonation.
O - I seem to like this more than most of the reviewers. I really like the complex flavors, which I had not expected. I often avoid Pale Ale's because most aren't complex. This one is quite tasty and I look forward to the next bottle.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy orange. Small white head. Wisps and a collar.

Smell - Nice orangey aroma. Phenolic cloves and bananas. Yeasty. Booze.

Taste - Much more of the Belgian character. Citrus is there, but fainter. More of a sweet apple flavor. Harsh pale malts. Booze and some spice in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Harsh alcohol. Not that much alcohol, but it's got a kick. A little heavy.

Overall - Enjoyed it at first, but it gets very harsh.

Pours a light semi-hazy sun golden yellow with a fair amount of prickly foam.

Biscuit-like sweetness, clove, earthy, toast, honey, and some pepper.

Clove, citrus rinds, resin, toasted bread, and that familiar Belgian peppery-spiced characteristic.

Light-medium bodied, medium-heavy carbonation, astringent, almost grainy, spiced, lackluster.

Overall, I was pretty disappointed with this, definitely not worth the price.
