I had this on tap recently at a local bar and I was pleasantly surprised. It has grains of paradise in it, similar to the Sam Adam's Summer ale, and some orange peel. This is similar to a Blue Moon or Shock Top but I would say it has much better flavor than either of those beers. It has a crispness and a bit of a bite to it that the other ales I mentioned just don't seem to have in my opinion. I always ask myself would I buy this beer again and the answer is a definite yes.

People don’t know wot beers. The reviews are off. I’ve had this twice in bottle where it was highly cloudy and the two times were 9 months apart. It is an awesome rendition. In fact hoegarden often isn’t this fresh. It’s too bad people don’t know excellence on such a subtle beer when it’s on.

Well cloudy, pale. Sweet, fruity. Not good at picking out spices, but they're here in spades. Very pleasant. A bit much for a daily pour, but I do quite like the taste.

Having this on-tap. Served in a pint glass, this beer pours a cloudy/hazy medium golden color with a white head that’s an inch thick when first drawn and served. Head settles eventually to a medium sized ring lining the inside of the glass. Pretty decent lacing. Aromas of some bready malts and wheat, orange peel and coriander spice, and a a bit of earthy hops. The taste is pretty much the same, with some bready malt sweetness and wheat, along with the aforementioned coriander and orange peel. Rounded out with some earthy, slightly citrusy hops that adds just the right amount of bitterness. Good balance of flavors and an overall flavor profile that’s pretty much spot on for the style. Has a fairly crisp, yet smooth and somewhat frothy, medium bodied mouthfeel with light to moderate carbonation. Has a clean finish and slightly spicy and bready aftertaste.

Look: Very cloudy orange. Decent white head.

Smell: Strong, indeterminate spiced citrus smell. Noticeable piney hop scent.

Taste: Malty, with a light citrus zest. Mild bitterness on the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Average thickness, good carbonation.

Overall: Extremely well-balanced, even if it doesn't necessarily excel in any category.

Tastes like a dry beer with a bit of orange peel and spice. Pretty good, but not very good. I'm not too familiar with the style, but I have had many Belgian beers that are better for me. It's easy to drink, kinda like an ice-tea. I give it that. A decent drinkable orange/lemon beer. Very simple and easy, but nothing fancy here.
