Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: Pours a fairly hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger white head that quickly fades into a thin patchy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.
Smell: A nicely spicy and funky Belgian style aroma with some fruity hints. Upfront Belgian yeast with hints of farmhouse funk and some clove, pepper, coriander, and ginger spicing. Pale malt with hints of grains, wheat, straw, cracker, and biscuit. Fruit hints of banana, apple, and white grapes along with citrus hints of orange peel, lemon zest, and pineapple. Hints of bubblegum and candied sugar as well. Subtle scent of earthy hops. Pretty good spicy aroma.
Taste: Like it smells, a spicy, funky, and zesty Belgian style taste with some nice citrus notes. Belgian yeast upfront with some farmhouse funk. Spice notes of peppers, clove, coriander, and ginger. Bready pale malt with notes of grains, straw, wheat, cracker, and biscuit. Fruity taste of banana, apple, and white grapes. Citrus fruit notes of orange peel, pineapple, and lemon zest. Candied sugar notes as well as a little bubblegum. Subtle presence of hops. A pretty nice zesty taste.
Mouthfeel: Body is on the lighter side of medium. Carbonation is fairly high. Spicy, juicy, and fairly drying on the finish.
Overall: A pretty nice take on the style. Good taste of spice and citrus. A lighter version of a Saison but good tasting.
Serving type: bottle
