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

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Aggressive pour yields a two finger creamy, white head. Copper orange in color with a slight haze and good amounts of carbonation rising. Good lacing.

S: Caramel malts and belgian yeast spice aroma (clove).

T: Malts are very clean and cracker-like. A little bit of hops up front but quickly followed by some melon and banana esters. The session description is accurate.

M: Moderately thin body with moderate to high carbonation. Very refreshing.

O: This truly is a session Belgian. It has most of the qualities of a good Belgian but ridiculously easy to drink. Would drink again, but won't be hunting it down. If you are a Belgian fan and want a beer you can knock down, this is your beer.

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

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Chill-hazed copper/gold in color, with a short head of white foam.
Aroma-Orange peel and spices
Taste-Faintly spicy orange peel, a bit watery and thin-bodied. Slight metallic note-quickly fading flavor. Not terrible for a session ale, but much better examples of the style are out there.
