500 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled 10/29/2013.

Appearance - Burnt orange. Very hazy. Medium white head and a nice chunky collar. Nice lacing.

Smell - Tropical fruits. Citrus hops. A little bit of toasty malt.

Taste - Mango with some citrus hops and sweet malts. A little bit of toasty malts. Minimal bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Medium to medium heavy. Verging on sluggish, but well carbonated.

Overall - One-dimensional, but that dimension is really nice. Tropical fruit everywhere in this beer.

Drinking in the second week of January, bottle with a date of the end of October. Might have hurt the hoppy characters a bit. Pours with a golden orange hue, and a half finger head that settles to a thin film, that leaves decent lacing as you drink. Smell contains floral and citrus hops, with a bit of the malt character coming through. Taste is a nice balance of bittering and aroma from the hops, with the Belgian yeast give some nice peppery notes. Not a hop bomb by any means, but I think it makes it abit more drinkable because of that. Great mouthfeel helping by the finer carbonation from the bottle carbing.

Overall a very good beer that's pretty drinkable. Might have been expecting something a little more interesting from a collab of MBC, allagash and in'finti. But definitely enjoyed it.
