Pours a murky golden with a tint of orange. Massive foamy head lingers for a long time. Sticky, thick and foamy lacing retains excellently, up to the top of the glass. The aroma is of sugars and fruity esters; there is an intense blend of tropical fruit. The taste starts out as predominantly fruity; the finish has tones of orange and sugar (like orange soda). Later, this finish becomes more dry and bitter with a hint of grapefruit and hops. The taste also becomes more complex; a yeasty flavor takes over as well as hops that balance the sweet tone. As for feel, this is a sipper. I consider it a medium to slightly full bodied beer, a modest carbonation but just right for a brew of this complexity. I enjoyed.

Poured into a Duvel tulip. No freshness date.

A- Pours a hazy orangeish medium amber color with a 1/4 inch off-white head that retains a bit before soon becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a jagged ring behind and there are chunks of sediment floating in the body.

S- Somewhat mild lactic acid aroma plus some musty funk brings to mind vinegar, white grape juice and lemon.

T- More white grape juice and lots of it. Also some honey and flowery notes. Slightly tart, less so than the aroma would lead you to think. Moderate malt presence while the alcohol is very well hidden.

M- Has some light tang to it with medium carbonation and a lightish body.

O- Pretty good but I feel like it wasn't quite worth the money I spent on it.
