A - Slightly cloudy, clover honey color. Nice white head with decent to good retention. good lacing.

S - Smells great but hard to describe. A diverse mix of smells. Some pine and citrus hops. A slightly lemon smell. A mix of spices that I'm not sure what they are, but remind me a little of a wheat beer, actually reminds me a little of the smell of allagash white.

T - The start is like like an APA, middle a little more hoppy, and finishes smooth like a witbier. Honestly to me taste like a decent apa, with a taste of allagash white, something about the flavor and smell just really reminds me of that beer.

M - Excellent, perfect carbonation levels

O - An interesting but good beer. Well balanced and different from the norms. I can't remember ever trying a Belgian IPA before, but I can say that this beer doesn't fit any other category I have tried.

Served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: Cloudy hazy dark gold, heavy bubbles on the body. Head is thick, with a hard pour was over two finger's length coming slightly off white. Honestly looks real nice.

Smell: Light yeast and hop with a lighter lemon skin that hits you in the end.

Taste: Heavy citrus, grapefruit and lemon combined alike. Bitter to most but very easy to adapt with light nutmeg notes.

Mouth: Heavy carbonation, sticky but a little dry. Not exactly smooth but very do-able.

Overall: Very good beer that I would definitely buy again. It's a borderline DIPA depending on your palates. Might have to grab more for some Sunday football. Grab a glass and hope you all enjoy. Salud!

Pours a big frothy white head atop a golden body with some haze. The saison yeast provides some spice while papery hops give grassy citrus. Flavors of clean wheat, too peppery with an unbalancing bitterness. The hops are harsh citrus and grass, leaving an unpleasant aftertaste of steeped vegetables and metal. High carbonation - harsh - with a light body.
