3.53/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and copper orange in color with a half finger, off-white head. Sub-par retention results in a thin, broken layer of suds across the surface. Not much for lacing aside from the odd spot or two.

Smell - Slight citrus and spice with a strong undertone of mango and green banana funk.

Taste - Follows the nose. Spice and green banana with a bit of citrus hoppiness. Light, slightly toasty and caramel malt undertone. Some nuttiness. Yeasty Belgian funk lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a dry, slightly flat finish.

Overall - Decent, but a bit too 'Belgian' heavy for my liking. Not enough assertive hop bite.

Super hoppy smell. Citra hop with Belgian yeast in the description. On the Milwaukee riverfront. Very bitter.

8/4....on tap at the Horse & Plow. pours rusty amber, medium dark, creamy foam lid. Nutty bready nose, caramels too. Pepper spice. Sharp pine bitter, oily, heavy resins. Pointed. Woody and slight sweetness. Tasty.
