Holy cow, just tasted the sample when moving to secondary today. I drank the whole thing, which I usually don't do. It's already at 1.010, so that puts it at 6.39% ABV. I can't taste the alcohol. The first taste I get when it hits my mouth is like biting into a naval orange, followed by a nice bitter orange/lemon peel taste. What rocks so hard is that there is no coriander, orange peel or any spice at all in this beer. It's completely the hops/yeast paired. The citrus is strong in this one, but the malt shines through right behind it. I expected no malt flavor from 1.010 gravity, but it's suprising. I think this is my new favorite beer. The WLP500 is a sexy, sexy yeast.

This recipe friggin rocks! Used German Select (Hallertau) instead of Marynka and used 1 lb of caravienne and no caramunich because I was going for a lighter color. One of the best Belgian Ales I've had! Excellent after 7 weeks of aging... My OG was 1.068 , so a little stronger. Good job, Ó Flannagáin!!!
