750 corked and caged, poured into a chalice glass. It pours a pale clear gold with a slight brown tint and a fizzy white head that dissipates without leaving any lacing. The smell is caramel, peanut butter, and oranges. Taste is biscuity and a bit grassy with a nutty aftertaste. The mouthfeel is VERY carbonated, which I love. Overall this is a pleasant beer without too much going on with it. It is likeable and solid in just about every way and extraordinary in none I can think of. It is in the mold of Duvel but Duvel does a much nicer job of it. Still, worth picking up for variety.

This ale is a beautiful light golden color with a hazy body that deepens the center of the ale to a light yellow/brownish color. Its filled with carbonation and dressed with a nice white head that foams up to about two fingers and slowly thins out into a broken ring around the glass. There is some mild lacing to mark every sip you drink.
Grass, lemon and citrus fruits are present in the aroma; lemon zest and orange peel also come through.
Light and crisp on the tongue, the spices travel through your mouth revealing some coriander, apple malts and a slightly hoppy aftertaste-very slight I might add.
This is a light bodied ale and overall goes down well; its smooth and tasty…there are some sweet undertone that come through in the aftertaste.
