Poured into my Surly pint glass.

Hazey honey color with 45 feet of head. It's running down the side of my glass actually. As the head subsides it kinda looks like swiss cheese as holes develop in the froth. Very little to no lacing. Sediment is suspended throughout. Spicy citrus on the nose. The banana bread smell that all Belgians seem to have for me. Taste consists of citrus and spice mixed with banana bread. Pretty much horrible. Can't stand Belgians. I picked out the taste notes, but really it tastes like an old gym sock. I was hoping that the pale ale part of the beer would save this for me. Sadly it was all around fail.

Pour was light copper with a one finger head. Head was slow to dissapate and left slight lacing on the glass throughout the drink.

Smell was tart with citrus floral in the front of the nose and slight hop spice in the rear of the nose. Mixed in was the standard import smell you get from lagers for some weird reason.

The front of the beer was nearly non-existent the hops were very prominate in the mid and the rear of the drink. Slight hop oil finish but still clean with a slight sweet aftertaste.

All and all a very drinkable beer, quite refreshing.

Serving type: on-tap

A voluptuous, bright white meringue-like head floats atop a slightly hazy, pumpkin-colored brew. The head slowly dissipates, revealing a handsome cling.

The aroma is of hops, with a suggestion of mango.

The beer is satisfyingly full and effervescent in its physical presence on the palate, but for all this promising buildup, its flavor disappoints. It is understated to a fault. Lacking fulsomeness, it is refreshing, I suppose, but veers, if anywhere, toward the metallic. There is a pleasant, but oh-so-mild, hoppy aftertaste, almost imperceptibly seasoned with pickled spiced lemon. Alas, its BPA is not this esteemed brewer's most appealing product, if you're looking for a beer with a robust and definite character.
