3.35/5 rDev -1.2%
Appearance is very nice golden orange. Pancake white head and nice lacing.
Nose is caramelized malt, orange zest, and hardy hops.
Taste is an exciting assortment of caramel, orange zest, sour candy, light bread, and light hops. Tastes shift like a good Belgian. However, after a few sips, the flavors fade and mesh into a soda-like sensation.
Mouthfeel is clean and refreshing with mild carbonation. However, the carbonation picks up at the end like club soda; muddling the taste.
Overall, starts off great, but the carbonation and mouthfeel are so distracting that the entire brew becomes a disapointment.

2.98/5 rDev -12.1%
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: a hazy golden yellow with a 1/4 inch of white head that fades after the pour and leaves no lacing.
Smells: there is a mild Belgian yeast note that I pick up through the floral hop base.
Tastes/mouthfeel: this is a unique pale ale with a tangy sort of Belgian twist. there is a cream kind of front from in the carbonation that finishes with the bitterness of the deliciousness from a good balance of hops.
Overall: I personally don't think I am going to buy it again for myself, but my girlfriend and the brother like quite a bit so it will probably make its way back into my beer fridge again in the future.

Pours a slightly hazy gold color with smallish head. Perfume like aromas with slight berry notes. Tastes pretty clean and neutral. Almost seems like a blond ale to me. Feels light with low bitterness. Overall, was expecting more from this brew, but it's not bad by any means. Would be a great starter beer for a novice craft beer drinker.

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.
