Spicy and robust taste, but lacks the vigor of a Belgian ale. A semi smoothness to the tongue and a semi fragrant smell, the brew is golden brown in color like most Belgian ales. The spicy and peppery taste is something new to myself, but not something that I would frequently drink for this very reason.

L: Hazy peach gold to amber under a clingy 1” cream colored foam cap that dissipates moderately fast.

S: Peach, ripe to over ripe fruit, a trace of banana and spice.

T: Very fruity flavors with a blend of orange, citrus, stone fruit, and a light malty caramel sweetness finished off with a moderate bitterness.The yeast driven fruit flavors are moderate to moderately high, the malt flavors are moderate to moderately low, the hop bitterness is moderate. There is a long lingering fruit finish.

F: Medium to medium light body, medium high carbonation, no astringency, very minimal warming.

O: A good, flavorful Belgian Pale Ale.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the "World of Beer" in Cary, NC. This beer has a murky golden orange color with a white head. The aroma is of slight hops and some spice. The flavor is a nice blend of citrus and spice with some malt and hops. a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. A really good beer highly recommended.
