3.51/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Hazy orange colour, 2 fingers of dense rocky white head, lots of lace all the way down the glass. Smell is of belgian yeast, tropical fruits, pineapple, lightly sweet scents, some hops in the nose, bubble gum and banana. Taste is yeasty and spicy, mild bitterness, pepper flavours and quite drying, some fruits and very floral in the finish. Thinish feel, medium carbonation, medium body. Not bad more belgian pale than IPA, definitley lacked the hop profile I was looking for and found the spicy flavours made the drinkability suffer after a while.

On tap at The Rhino. Emphasis on the Belgian. I was getting a strong, Unibroue yeasty-like Belgian, with a hoppy finish. Hop aromas.Peach colour with a quarter of an inch retained beige head. Good drinkability, corriander, significant musty yeast. A little wheat. A sipper, but its good drinkability and mouthfeel. Some fruitiness.

On tap at the Burger Bar, into a pint glass.

Poured a most-certainly unfiltered brownish-orange, with an insanely dense cap of offwhite head. Brilliant retention and lace. Can't let go of how good this head looked. Nose has some potent Belgian yeast notes, and almost some banana coming off of this. Tropical fruits are hidden underneath this; the yeast is the feature for the most part. Taste has some more yeasty flavours and fruitiness, a touch of pine/herbal and more tropical notes (some pineapple rind possibly?). Modest hop bitterness, and some good chewiness to the body. Yeast and some graininess remains on the palate long after the sip is consumed. Medium low carbonation, and a full body. Quite nice, but more hop flavour would've made this substantially better.
