Just bought this at the KBC tonight. Brewed in honor of the major construction going on downtown right now. Brewer did not indicate a specific style, so I had to try and pin this one down myself.

A - Pours clear, reddish-brown. Nice garnet hues. One pinky of fluffy head disappears in about a minute. Little to no lacing.

S - Nice malty, fruity esters. A little sour citrus. Some caramel sweetness. Reminds me of great Belgian ales, but definitely a cheaper knock-off. Malt is maybe a little stale. :-/

T - Overall, malty with some background orange peel. A bit sour on the swallow (from the orange peel). Hops is barely a peck on the cheek.

M - Carbonation is initially aggressive, mellowing a bit as the beer warms. Up front, I think it's a little too much, and it may actually hide the more subtle aspects of this brew.

D - Considering how much this brewery spends on ingredients, I think this is a reasonable attempt. However, it can't touch Ommegang's Rare Vos with a ten-foot pole.
