Nearly flawless beer.... beatiful beer... nice amber colorkng with huge fluffy white head... nice head retention. Huge aromas... the name fits the nose... freaky funky aromas.. lots of belgian yeast fighting with a huge helping of citrus hop presence.. medium bodied and green flashes best beer... atleast from the oned ive had.

This was the best beer I have had in a long, long time. I went into it knowing nothing about it - pure experiment. I poured it at the end of the evening, as I settled in to watch TV. And nearly two hours later, I realized I was still nursing it, unwilling to let it go. And when it was gone, I missed it. When I woke up, I thought about it.

I had a crush on this beer.

Pours a sunny orange with a fluffy white head and a torrent of carbonation. Aroma is grainy and phenolic, light orange zest, clean and malty. Flavor is rich and citric, with a tang of orange, clove and allspice and a surprising and uncharacteristically deep bitterness, a slight metallic bite, but balanced by a clean, musky malty bite. Mouthfeel is buttery and rich, accentuating the bitterness. The best part is the delicious deep abiding bitterness, that clings to the back of the tongue.

A must try.
