Lydia and I were eating at Outback Steakhouse and saw they were advertising some new australian beers they had, this one included. We decided it looked the most interesting, and ordered it, old to be told by the waitress that "that one is NASTY!"
Upon observing the majority of the beers outback has to offer, we decided to stand by our choice, and were pleased to discover a nice, cloudy, belgian-feeling ale.
This beer is bottle fermented and has a ton of sediment in it as a result, so you might want to invert it before drinking it (a process we had to explain to the Outback staff). It pours nicely afterward, with a nice foamy head and a cloudy appearance. The taste was very even, and somewhat sweet (like a belgian).
Next time anyone one here who likes belgian style ales is in an Outback, please order this so that they keep carrying it. It's a good beer, and really stood out on a list that otherwise has Newcastle as its most interesting member.

Best after 1/27/13.
Pours a murky light orange with a foamy beige head that fades to nothing. No lacing on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, and slight citrus-like hop aromas. Taste is much the same with malt, floral, and citrus hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is decent but the aromas and flavors on this one seem fairly muted.
