(Served in a chalice)
A- This beer pours a hazy glowing orange body with an antique white head that fades to a thin sticky film after a bit.
S- The bright fruity esters have some fruit cocktail hop aromas to them. There is a plastic note that turns more yeasty and buttery as the beer opens but it is not offensive.
T- The yeasty pils malt flavor has a slight salt hint to it with some dry canned tropical fruit flavors that lead into herbal green pungent hops in the finish. There is a field corn hint in the finish and a touch of tartness with some grapefruit pith lingering.
M- The medium mouthfeel has a velvety texture and a spicy fizz note in the finish. There is no alcohol noticed unless I stand up.
O- This beer has nice complex flavor on the tongue with the dry pils malt and grapefruit pith flavor balance the fruity aroma and flavors in the hops.

Popped the golden bottle cap (subtlety wasn't lost on me) and poured into a .4L tulip glass. Love the label, reminds me of Master P album covers and ubiquitous strip mall pawn shops dotting the forgotten corners of Chicago's landscape. The beer has a deep orange color that glows in the light, and a sturdy cap of creamy foam billows above the rim of the glass.
Big floral spices and Belgian yeast in the aroma, chamomile and ginger, some light citrus, definitely orange as it warms up. very dry and little sweetness to be found.
Lush, creamy feel, dried oranges, lightly peppery and only slightly bitter with some of the noble hops present in the background. Peach, cloves, pepper. Smooth and pleasantly dry aftertaste, with a welcomed light tartness in the middle (mentioned on the label, so no surprise there). The double digit abv is well hidden, only present vaguely at room temperature. They hit the style dead on here, it's very close to surpassing Moinette as my personal favorite.

750ml into a tulip.
A: Pours a mild hazy gold with a large white head.
S: Mango and pineapple esters, white cake maltiness, a bit of bready yeast, vanilla, egg cream.
T: Taste brings a palpable floral hoppiness, more tropical fruit notes, sweet vanilla wafer, fresh bread, hint of alcohol.
M: Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.
O: Very nice BSPA. I like that this is a smidge hoppy.

Poured from a 750ml bottle and split into 2 Belgian style goblets.
A - It pours a hazy golden straw color with a generous 2 finger head.
S - It smells like fresh baked bread, mixed with some banana and citrus notes.
T - This was one of the tastiest Belgian golden ales I've had in a long time. The taste is similar to the nose. At first you get a bready Belgian yeast taste, followed by notes of banana, clove, lemon, and pepper that lingers for a while. After every sip I wanted more.
M - The mouth feel was very nice. It had very nice, big bubbles and good head retention, with lots of lacing.
O - This was a very enjoyable beer. At $10.99 for a full size 750ml bottle - I will definitely try to pick some more of this up.

A nice golden color, plentiful bubbles, slow to shrink foamy white head. Pretty as a picture.
Banana, a slight citrus, but very demure on the spicy side.
Rich malt flavor, with bright fruit taste, but once again really lacking on that Belgian yeast spice. By no measure does it taste bad though, no alcohol taste which is dangerous at 10%.
The aforementioned plentiful bubbles really shine, not to fizzy, not to small, just a pleasurable scrub on the mouth. A subtle flavor coating is left to compliment food, or enjoy.
Very well done, just lacking the normal bite of a Belgian yeast.
