From 09/16/14 notes. Had at the brewpub, been wanting to try this for a while.

Pours a hazy bright orange-amber color with one inch of bright white head and low carbonation evident. Citrus hops, fresh tropical fruits, juicy, fruity malts, oranges, and floral hops. Taste is lightly bitter but bad at all. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall one of their best beers IMO; well worth seeking out.

A - Cloudy bright amber body with bubbly light tan head. Retention isn't so great but nice lacing.

S - Lots of orange rind and some familiar Belgian notes, like banana

T - The flavors really sing. Bright orange citrus hops upfront followed by tangy citrus Belgian notes. Sweet malts follow at the back and into the aftertaste. No banana notes in the taste

M - Medium body with moderate/high carbonation. Somewhat sticky.

O - Really great brew. I tend to avoid the Belgians, but this is a nice mix that doesn't stray to heavily into the flavors I typically dislike. Will certainly pick this up again.
