Apricot pour that is slightly cloudy. White head eases back with low retention.
Aroma of bubblegum, spice drop candy, coriander, yeasty and lemon. Beautiful sweetness to it in a fruit medley of sorts. Almost like a Hi-C punch.
Taste starts out a traditional Belgium witbier. Bready, clove, peppery zest and Belgium spice candy. White grapefruit peel emerges with some dankness. It's got a hoppy ending with a splendid balance of malt. Also added faint pine. As this warms up more complexity of fruit juices comes forth.
Light to medium body with residual sugars. Sprite enough carbonation but not enough to scrub the tongue. Find the layering of sweetness quite welcome and delicious.
IMO, starts out a witbier turns into an IPA and soon after the richness and depth of an IIPA if you let it sit-amazing. Fruity and refreshing. If your life was mundane or stuck in lupulin overload this will get your taste buds back online. Deliciousity delivered. Haven't been this pleasantly surprised since Le Terroir. This blows FFF's Live a Rich Life out of the water. Did I mention I just love this freakin stuff. Class act and might I add tremendously tremendous!

a really delicately done belgian ipa. the yeast isnt as intense or fruit ester heavy as so many of these that flood the market. not at all. its way more relaxed, and while it eats all the sugar in this thing giving it a real dry finish and awesome carbonation, it also flavors the beer only subtly, and lets the hops do the work, as it should be i say. light layer of haze to this otherwise radiant honey colored brew. an inch and a half of white head hangs around on top, while white lace adorns the edges of my tulip glass. the nose and taste of this beer are hops first. more grassy than bitter in smell, but with a definite freshness to them. a little spicy too on the palate, maybe the varietals, maybe the yeast, either way, its a cool sensation on the finish of an otherwise very dry ending. prickly carbonation is quite refreshing, while the general feeling of lightness and growth and sunlight and summer than hangs around this beer make it a nice porch drinker for the individual that isnt afraid of making 7% abv brews into a session. this is a great introduction to solemn oath for me, who looks to brew rather prolifically, with some 60 beers listed here. probably worth a visit sometime...

A really nice looking beer. Bright and hazy gold with a clean, soft white head.
Banana, clove, and pineapple aromas. Some funky yeast.
I wish the Belgian yeast was able to show more because it has some nice tropical fruits to it and the banana is a nice compliment and could have been stronger. Spicy and clove finish with a sugary chalky aftertaste.
Medium body, heavy carbonation.
With some fine tuning this can be really good. It's a little bit sugary and if that's dialed back and the banana pops more I think I'd be a bigger fan.
