Orange caramel color. Towering, white, root-beer float-like head and a thick, soapy lacing. Head stays around forever.

Bright, citrus aromas with ginger and yeast blended in.

Cascade hop bitterness with a lemon and ginger root bite. Fruity esters throughout. Earthy in the middle. Wheat backbone. Yeast and clove notes. Well balanced.

Medium body with a smooth, even texture from the yeast. Crisp carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

Exceptional brew. Everything a Belgian-style pale ale should be. High level of complexity and balance.

On tap at the ColLAboration beer fest at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy orange-white head that settles to a small cap. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grain, herbal hops, and a slightly funk gym sock aroma. Taste is of malt/grain, grassy hops, and a slight funk on the finish. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good Belgian pale ale that is very easy to drink. Not too crazy about the smell though.

First review...
A - Poured a great gold/orange color with fantastic head that lasted long and laced well.

S - Citrusy with the classic belgian yeast smell that I love. I could sniff this beer all day.

T - Not too sweet. Definately a bready flavor here that is very good.

M - High carbonation, but light and refreshing with just a slight amount of dryness.

O - A nice easy drinking beer. The smell is outstanding and the rest is very good.

Hazy gold. A careful pour but still plenty of sediment floating around. Big old head settles down to a respectable covering (about half the size of the ridonc Duvel covering I just savored).

Hops, some fruity yeastiness. Not too much at first, but serve this guy a little at the right temperature (I had it out of the fridge the first time), and, as it warms, those “tropical fruits” do pop. I’d say mangos lead the pack.

Hoppy, fruity, and a Peppery aftertaste. No surprises but very good.

Lots of bubbly fizz. Solid and hoppy this is a good choice and something I’d love to snag at the bar.
