Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a mild burnt golden orange color with a thin finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice even pace. Mild lacing sticks in rings. The aroma balances nicely between some white pepper, Belgian bready malts, and some sweet citrus. The flavor initially yields to the bready sweetness and then entices the citrus and white pepper for a nice balance. Some floral dry sweetness in underneath. Gently folds the sweet floral over the bready malts in the aftertaste and rolls into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Moderate carbonation. Some stickiness, but not cloying. Overall, good Belgian pale ale that I would have again.

Aromatic indeed. Great brewer.
A - Hazy golden, orange body. Firm white head. Thin collar and a dotty lace.

S - Pungent, yeasty, grassy with citrus and tropical fruits. Bright fruity flavor. Profiles a Belgian character.

T - Tart orange zest. yeasty, grassy, with closing tartness. On top of yeasty, fresh bread, malt sweetness.

F - Drying, excellent food beer. Medium body and carbonation.

O - As good a Belgian WIT IPA as I have tasted. Sum is greater than its parts.

Pours a dark golden orange with a thick pillowy white head that leaves a lot of webbed lacing on the pint glass. A wonderful Belgian pale ale, with a little clove, that is very easy to drink. Picked this up as a single in the pick a mix section at Randall's in Fairview Hgts, IL.

Tastes very similar to 80 acre, which I like.

Golden hued, nice lacing, bartender f---ed up the pour but looks like a nice tight, bright white head.

Good carbonation which I like.

Overall a very solid beer. Big thumbs up.
