Another beer that I would guess the style but is really good. This one does not have the amount of hops that I typically associate with a Belgian IPA. What it does have is a big burst of fruit and juiciness. Taste is peach, coriander, wheat, Belgian spices, and slight earthy hops at the end. All of the flavors seem to pop. A very light and semi-sweet beer. This is one I could drink several of, especially as it gets warmer. Really well done.

A beer I could sit on the porch on a sunny day drinking. A nice golden yellow color with a nice wheat/IPA taste.

This beer poured a nice opaque gold with about a half a finger of head and persistent lacing. This was an approachable Belgian ale, not overly sweet or acerbic but balanced with a refreshing but astringent impact on the palate and a moderate, mouth-coating feel. The aroma isn't strong, more characteristic of a Belgian, not at all piney or hoppy. Thoughts of lemon, white raisins, coriander, and mild cloves are evoked. IPA seems a misnomer; to even call it a pale ale is generous but regardless of genre it was an enjoyable and very refreshing brew.
