A-Pours gold with a bright white head that dissipates very quickly and leaves no lacing.

S-Somewhat spicy with some citrus notes.

T-chalky, soapy, with a weird lingering aftertaste. Not very good.

M-thin and over carbonated.

D-easy drinking if you can overlook the off tastes.

Overall, I would never drink this again it is no where near Orval.

a: shaker pint serving, medium golden in color, with a lightly retained layer of carbonation

s: light malt base with a balanced sweetness, mild yeasty phenols, grassy hop aroma, pretty nice

m: carbonation moderate in level on a lighter bodied beer

t: a simple pale malt structure holds some nice belgian yeast flavors and an earthy, grassy hop flavor, finishing with a light bitterness

d: drinks just fine, low in alcohol with enough flavor to keep things interesting

Beautiful slightly hazy orange. Head isn't bad, leaving a film after a few minutes. Retention and lacing could be a littel better though. Phenolic and wonderful aroma and flavor. Spicy with a nice dose of noble hop. Just a touch of citrus. A really nice blanket of maltiness really makes it especially flavorful and fills in all the cracks. Perfect carbonation for the style. Refreshing and crisp, but with more body than you would expect at just 4.8%.
