2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An unexciting, fairly mediocre Belgian. I was looking for a calm, middling beer tonight, and even that relatively low bar was not met. The beer pours a normal enough warm brown-amber color with an extremely effervescent head. The head puffs up hugely at first, filling the glass with bubbles with only a couple inches of liquid. Despite all of this initial excitement, the head actually dissipated quite quickly and left very little lacing. Mouthfeel is under-carbonated. The smell is really lacking. It’s a flat, yeasty odor with very little of the normal complexity of good Belgian yeast. The flavor is somewhat better but still odd. It’s sweet with a fair bit of caramel and bread malt flavor, but it’s not really very interesting or complex. The bitter yeasty flavor is also there in the flavor. There is a merely passing earthy Belgian note. The beer just doesn’t come together

Thanks to whomever brought this to Newport Beach Brewing’s Winterfest Bottleshare. This golden pour was forgettable, lacking in flavor and I wound up pouring it out
