look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A- Pours a dark, dull apricot color when poured into a snifter. Beer is opaque with a fluffed white head that starts large and persists at a finger's width. Detached, but significant, lacing.

S- Smells hoppy and fruity, tropical in nature. Some citrus perhaps.

T- Low malt notes, followed by the citrus hoppiness and the fruit undertones. I like it a lot.

M- Medium-bodied with rich mouthfeel that remains after swallowing.

O- Delightful beer. I know it was released in spring and Ommegang's site describes it as being a good summer beer ... But it's the day before Thanksgiving and I'm loving it. (Disclaimer: I live in Texas and it's hot outside.)

A: Pours dark orange with a white fluffy head that sticks around

S: A strong hoppy character, a grassy/earthy sort of hop with hints of spice and a bit of a sweet malt backbone.

T: A grassy hoppiness at first, moving into an earthy, muddy aftertaste. Pretty one note.

O: This one is okay, but I would stick with IPAs instead.

On tap at Bar Pink in North Park

A: Hazy dark golden color with a big fluffy white head.

S: Fairly light aroma with some chalky yeast, a bit of candi sugar and some lemon zest.

T: Fairly dry with some notes of clove and a slight bit of banana. Some grassy hop resin creeps in on the finish.

Serving glass: Poured from tap into Tulip.

Appearance: Clear copper-amber with nice off white head.

Smell: Quite hoppy with grapefruit, tropical fruit and some spiciness. Biscuit, clove and banana as well.

Taste: Similar to the aroma with a biscuit malt backing and nice clove and banana yeast undercurrent. Nice layer of tropical hops on top with mild bitterness and spiciness.

Feel: Moderately high carbonation with a relatively light body. Nice dry finish.

Overall: Very nice borderline Belgian IPA. Refreshing and complex.
