Appearance: murky orange with shimmers of golden straw drifting on through. Fluffy orange pith head clings to sides of the glass, crawling up to form a solid thick collar. Swirls nicely.

Nose: orange and upside down pineapple cake. Orange skin and pith contribute some dryness along with more esters. Cinnamon, cumin, and grains of paradise. Banana peels, preferably green. Wafers, leather, sawdust and old bales of straw. An interesting mix of tropical fruit skins, freshly peeled.

Palate: soft along the sides and in the front. Flavor highly concentrated in the middle. Spices abound from start to finish; cumin and nutmeg especially with hints of grains of paradise. Coconut husk, leather, dusty baled hay, and pineapple skin minus the flesh. Very fast dry finish; thirst inducing. Raw honeycomb for an earthy down home sweetness. Green banana peel. A touch thin but not detrimentally so; flavors more than make up for it. Orange skin peel and pith.

Final Thoughts: besides the funky name, she was a wee bit of a funky brew. I initially started out tasting her rather unimpressed, but by the time I was done she had surely grown on me. An intriguing take on the ambiguous Belgian ale style.
