look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Opaque burnt orange with a cream head and long-lasting lace.

S - Pungent fruity and spicy esters. Some grassiness as well.

T - Some sour fruit flavors that turn into more subtle dark fruits like prunes. There is a little caramel, but not much. There is a sour finish of citrus fruit that sits on the front of your tongue at the end of the sip along with some yeast flavor.

M - The head is pretty creamy and fluffy.

O - This beer looks nice and is trying hard to be a Belgian Pale Ale. However ,the nose and flavor profile don't quite make it. There are hints of the genre, but it is lacking overall.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Orange and mostly clear with a little haze, big fluffy head with staying power and very good lace.

Smell is a blend of spice, malt, yeast and a little hops, not real strong but pleasant enough.

Taste is toasty malts and a slightly astringent spiciness, with a touch of hops crispness and a touch of lemon peel.

Body is a little thinner than I'd like. Carbonation was ok enough.

Overall it's not very memorable for the style

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured a lovely golden color with a decent beige head. Head mostly receded, with a small amount of lacing. Aroma was that of funky earthiness. Yeasty, sweet, citrusy and funky. Dark fruit was barely noticeable but still there in the taste, while the yeast and earthiness took over for the most part. Still some light citrus notes.

Medium-bodied. A funky but drinkable beer with decent carbonation. Complexity is there, but not totally balanced. Refreshing, but not that memorable and not a preferred Belgian Pale Ale for me.

Serving type: on-tap
