Sampled a pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. A light golden amber with a half-finger or so of white bubbles on top. Aroma largely fruity, apple, pear, and peach notes yielding a gummy bear-like effect that is accompanied by a light orange and lemon rind citric note. I am puzzled by the lack of spicy notes on both nose and palate. This is a Belgian ale, correct? Drinks light and fizzy like a lager or macro-brewed pale ale, bubblegum fruity and slightly floral. Semi-dry and almost no Belgian yeast phenols, although Micheal Jackson writes that the Palm yeast strain yields a dry orange character and I can certainly taste that here. Some of this citrus carries over into the semi-dry finish. Forgettable when compared to many other Belgian brews although enjoyable enough on a hot patio.
