2.79/5 rDev -16%
Appearance: Clear and golden. A chunky and bubbly head developed and then quickly dissipated into a very thin foam that remained for the duration of the drink.
Smell: Banana, bubblegum, and light citrus.
Taste: Banana, bubblegum, light citrus, floral, and wheat.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and light carbonation.
The very first smell reminded me immediately of a Leffe, and this made me quite sad. However, the smell did have some citrus in it so that was nice. The taste is only ok. When it was cooler, the banana, bubblegum, wheat, and light citrus were the most pronounced. Then as it warmed, the floral aspect took over with the remaining banana and there was a slight tangy aftertaste.. Oddly enough, the taste really began to disappear as it neared room temperature. I would not get this again.

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.
