Enjoyed this 11.2oz stubby brown bottle out of a large snifter glass.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden-orange hue with a thin, 1-finger, white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace leaving a wispy lace.

S: Spicy Belgian yeast aroma with hints of citrus fruits.

T: Creamy and spicy Belgian yeast flavor with a citrus background and hints of hops.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Excellent Belgian brew – one of the best around.

An orange beer with a fantastic light orange head. The aroma is fantastic: it is malts sweet with notes of alcohol, fruit, oranges, coriander, and cinnamon - a wonderful nose. The flavor too is fantastic - it starts with a nice malts sweetness containing notes of oranges, fruit, coriander, cinnamon, and alcohol. In the end, the alcohol sting your tongue, before it leaves you with a sweetness that lingers on your tongue and lips. It has a very nice palate. This is a great beer.
