Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours golden orange with a small head that dissipates very quickly. Smells of wheat and "Belgian Yeast" not much else. Tastes of wheat and slight fruit tastes. Beer is light bodied and goes down smooth. Overall a slightly above average beer.

A: The beer pours a carrot orange with a good clarity factor. A one finger cream head is steady as well the slowly ascending carbonation within. Small encircling lace ring.

S: For aroma there was a bit of stale oranges, musky nature, wheat, and some dry vinery.

T: The flavor was a bit spicy upfront, oranges, with a strong yeasty character, along with some musky fruit. Dry grainy dusting, a bit of dry spicing and woodsy touch. Dry hoppy pine, flour and wheat come on the close.

M: ordinary, lacks the crispness i prefer by style, the body is average, no real aspiration, with a dry powdery and pollen like coating.

O: Overall average best describes this attempt. Not good enough to mention, just barley good enough to finish, but certain not good enough for repeat best describes my feelings about this.
