I tried a can of this on the rooftop bar of the Residence Inn in Cincinnati. It poured a hazy yellow with white head that is leaving some lace. The scent had Belgian spice hints and fruit. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 11/28/2017. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, citrus peel, coriander, peppercorn, clove, pine, light banana/bubblegum, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, spices, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, citrus peel, coriander, peppercorn, clove, pine, light banana/bubblegum, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel/herbal/grassy bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, pear, pineapple, mango, melon, red apple, citrus peel, coriander, peppercorn, clove, pine, light banana/bubblegum, wheat, cracker, white bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance, and zero lingering hop/spice astringency after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitter/spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately bready/grainy/sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Overall this is an excellent Belgian white IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, citrus/earthy hops, spices, and moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; with the modestly bitter/spicy/drying finish, never aggressive. Great balanced fruity/spicy yeast, spices, and citrus/earthy hop complexity; with a nice pale/wheat malt backbone, with minimal residual sweetness. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Hope this style gets more popular again soon.

On tap at Laddie's sky club in Brookfield OH

Body is a uniformly hazy nearly transparent straw yellow. Served with a one finger head and lots of lacing sticks.

Nose is sweet with hints of sugar and a lot of floral hops

Taste is somewhat mild with floral and pine hops upfront and a light malt background. Finish is slightly hoppy with pine and floral hops

Medium carbonation and a medium weight slightly watery body.

Overall this is a pretty good beer...but I would like a little more complexity and more to the body.
