Poured orangish-yellow with little head that dissipated almost immediately. Looks like it might be heavier than I was expecting. I'm not terribly impressed.
Smells slightly whets with a faint hint of intrusive. There's an underlying sweetness here too.
Tastes slightly more bitter than the smell led me to believe, and isn't as crisp and refreshing as I'd hoped, but it's good. There's a lot of lavor packed in here.
As usual, Sam brings it with the mouthfeel. This is really full-bodied and rich/creamy.
Overall, this beer is not what I expected at all, but generally, I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. It could be just a bit sweeter, but it really doesn't need to be, it's just my preference.

3.3/5 rDev -0.6%
LOOK: Bright golden/amber, touch of haze, thin white lace.
SMELL: Fresh toasty bread, light bubble gum, floral hops, faint tropical fruits.
TASTE: Crisp carbonation, creamy, light on the palate, dry upfront, bitter, lemony, apple-y, toasty malts, biscuity, dry, yeasty, tea-like linger.
Not too shabby. Reminds me of some of the first basic Belgian Pale Ales I had in my early beer geek days. No frills, but it's got some flavorful and quite drinkable. Wish it was a tad bit cleaner on the finish though.

Shared at bu11zeye's 10,000th rating tasting.
The beer pours a yellowish color with a white head. The aroma is fairly fruity with a lot of orange and lemon notes, with a little bit of malt and some yeast thrown in. The flavor is similar, with a nice wheat malt backbone, with some grain and some orange also present. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Fairly straightforward. Nothing offensive, but nothing really stands out.
