On tap at Perennial. Served in a stemmed glass. Pours a medium copper body, one finger white head, good retention, not much lacing. Smells of pear, minerals, sulfur, cereal grain, touch of stonefruit, peppercorn, maybe a bit floral. Solid. Flavour is similarly solid; nothing truly stands out but it has a decent mix of flavours- picking out stone fruit, pepper, sulfur, pear, cereal grain, mild caramel. Not as much of the floral notes. Mouthfeel is medium-thinner bodied, good carbonation, very easy to drink, not too flavour-forward but still a decent complexity to things. It's as good a house beer as any.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a fairly vibrant and hazy orange hue into the glass, a billowy white head forms and settles to a nice little layer of suds on-top, lacing left behind is solid and consistent.

S — Smell is incredible and unexpected, with huge tropical notes of pineapple, guava, and melon, orange marmalade as well.

T — Unfortunately the aromas don't exactly carry though, I just get mild notes of fruit on top of a yeasty and bitter Belgian Pale base, lightly tangy, though mostly dominated by yeast.

M — Medium bodied, an acrid lingering finish as well.

O — Good overall, smell is really nice, but it doesn't translate to the flavor as well as I would have liked.

On-tap @ Alchemy, Madison, WI:

Pours hazed golden with a thin wispy head. Trailing lace sticks.

The smell is of grain, cotton candy, orange, lemongrass, slight spice.

The taste is of sweet grain, cotton candy/bubblegum, orange peel and a noticeable hop bite in the finish.

It is light-bodied and effervescent.

It is sweet with a touch of orange and a drying hop character. A nice take on a Belgian Pale Ale!
