look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours with a vibrant active head. Above average active carbonation in glass while drinking. Creamy lacing left behind with each drink.

Smell: Accents of pears, cloves, and bananas hit the nose right away. Subtle lemon and lime tones warm up in the body. Very solid yeast base.

Taste: Excellent. Vibrant fruits blast through right away. A bready, yeast, buttery body comes through after the fruit. Finish is a pleasant dryness with accents of all stages of this beer left behind. Well rounded, balanced, and a real experience for the drinker.

Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, and fruity.

Overall: A really excellent american belgian style beer. A truly wonderful ride for the palate. This was an early one for Pipeworks and they showed their awesomeness very early on.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: yellow body with hints of light orange. fizzy head that dissipates very quickly.

S: harsh grain, slight barnyard funk, sharp lemon zest, peppery spices, a slight touch of coriander

T: awesome orange peel, lemon zest, slight candy sugar, spice, and yeast. i also enjoy the rich creaminess in the finish

M: much thicker than I had expected and its extremely nice. the creaminess is so damn nice and it lingers on the palate with a touch of funk.

O: simply one very well put together beer. PW is known for their hoppy beers, but this one is terrific too. definitely looking forward to seeing this company continue to put out some awesome brews.
