this new product from haacht includes orange peel and ascorbic acid in its ingredients.

Pours a very deep red with a small tan head...nose is very malty at first, then notes of flowery citrus odors come out.

taste is initially bitter and malty, with a hint of the citrusy character, but then turns very bitter, Not sure which hop can produce this but it is quite intense. . it finishes mildly bitter.

further into the bottle it remains a fairly bitter, biting beer. I pick up some spicy notes which may be the orange peel as well. Belgian amber ale (not a BA-offered style for beer) is not my favorite, but this is very decent. I am somewhat puzzled by use of ascorbic acid in the beer.
