3.78/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A light creamy head fades slowly over a hazy orange amber beer.

The nose has some light Belgian malts and fruity Belgian yeast, some nice spicy and fruity American hops, a nice combination.

Taste starts with spicy and bitter American hops. Some light citrus and fresh hop musty resinous flavors. More Belgian malts, slight creamy and fruity Belgian yeast.

Mouth is slightly creamy medium body with lower but decent carbonation.

Finishes slightly astringent and pretty bitter win lingering resinous musty fresh wet hop flavors as well as a slight dry Belgian yeast finish.
