Pours a handsome amber color with a very thin foam in the big Duvel tulip. A whiff of custard. Lightly carbonated with fine bubbles. The mouthfeel is thickish. Something like malt with some caramel. Reminds me of Hawaiian bread, kind of sweet and doughy.
I don't taste oranges specifically, but there is a citrus tang. It's more like a fruity bitterness with a touch of yeast. I can't say there is anything really wrong with this, it just has an odd, persistent flavor without much beery refreshing quality. No trace of hops, which would be odd for an Amber Ale, if that's what this is. It seems more like a bleary and bloated Witbier. From the 12 oz bottle bought at Ralph's Supermarket in San Clemente.
