On tap at the brewery, served in a tulip.

Hazy orange body with a voluminous white head. Big lace and good retention. Tons of yeast notes on the nose, a bit of spice, hint of ethanol with melons, tropical fruits and citrus. More honeydew melon in terms of flvaour, a little less tropical. Yeast and some Belgian character, a bit of weed flavour too, in the best way. Light herbal bitterness but a substantial malt sweetness as well. Light alcohol, a bit yeasty in the finish. Medium heavy body and a medium carbonation. A really cool and tasty tripel/IPA/Belgian IPA whathaveyou - awesome flavour and body.

On tap at the pub. Served in a tulip. Pours a hazy orange yellow with a creamy head that shrinks slowly and leaves heavy lacing. Aroma is apricot, pepper, and funk. Taste is apricot, bread, grapefruit, Belgian yeast, and more. Medium mouthfeel. I hope this becomes a regular beer.
