(poured into a Chouffe tulip)

L: crystal-clear, brownish light orange liquid... tight, cottony, off-white foam - retention fairly long, slow fade

S: honey graham underneath (minus the cinnamon)... fragrant sweetish orange peel... mild toasted notes complimented by spicy (vaguely coriander) hop aromas... is that new shoe smell??... smell mellow overall, while the fruit notes shine brighest

T: not quite as bitter in the middle as expected - concentrated on the sides of the palate... herbal spice in the aftertaste... bitterness does build with a touch of alcohol lingering... nice balance - hops are quite fruity but matches well against the clean malt backbone

F: not much of a fizzy bite... hop oils in the foam seem to enhance the marshmallowy cushioning effect in the flow... medium-bodied, but light in weight... mildly silky smooth

O: pretty well made... clean, soft, fairly balanced... hops are bitter enough and the bitter is bright, clean, un-obscured... English-leaning subtleties...

Very average, lacking in any burst of flavor. This beer was fresh too, but didn't have any standout qualities worth mentioning.
