Amber, medium head. Nose smells of Belgian yeast, but fairly faint. Medium through the middle, slightly malty....never seems to finish the deal. Will not buy again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received a single 12-oz bottle from BDR. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, golden grain malt, a hint of clove and some light leather. Taste is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some light banana notes, a hint of clove and Belgian yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a light Belgian ale profile. Quite nice.

ON tap at Bar Ferdinand in NOLIBS PHL. Poured a slight reddish orange but mainly clear. Very little lacing. Mild sweet Belgian aroma. Tiny bit of berries too. Mouthfeel was light and refreshing without too much carbonation. Taste was of light fruit, funk, Belgian flavors and some slightly tart fruit. Overall, a very solid beer. Nothing I would go out hunting for and I felt weird ordering it (what with all the Jebus references in the beer), but it’s a very decent beer that drinks quite well. A very good gateway beer to getting folks into Belgians.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a murky golden with very small head that leaves no lacing and quickly dissipates. Bready malt aroma with resinous hops accompanying a sharp bitterness up front that isn’t entirely pleasant. Medium bodied. Sticky on the palate with moderate carbonation. Long finish with astringent bitterness that lingers. I cannot say I like this beer a great deal. Perhaps I got a bad bottle.

A beer should really be better than this if it’s going to so blatantly invite comparison to beer brewed by actual Belgian monks. Certainly not bad but nothing special.

Goldish brown, good head. Spice and citrus aroma. Taste has some caramel and a bit of spice - not overpowering. Finish is more caramel and malt.. Not a ton of Belgian flavor, but it’s still good.
