750 c&c from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours burnished brass with a 3 finer creamy/fizzy white head. Aroma is soapy pepper. Not bad, just unusual. Med + body. Flavor is very pepper with some Belgian yeast/spice aspects. Itís even a bit earthy. Whatever it is supposed to be, itís good enough to be a Belgian. Nice peppery earthy finish. Yum!
