On-tap 10/17/2014 at Track 84 in Warwick, RI, served in a stange glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains floral hops, fruity citrus, Belgian yeast and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with a strong burst of piney hops bitterness. Then some sweet flavors of caramel and citrus come in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a nice beer to drink for a long time.

Funky spicy, citrusy, earthy. Interesting and complex aroma. Unfortunately, it's probably the most phenolic /band aid beers I've tried. Unsure of age, but it's got a bitter finish.
