Golden amber pour with a slight white head at the brewpub. Slight Belgian nose and again in the taste. Nicely done but not a style I’m crazy about.

Tap at Magic Rock’s Rainbow Project launch. Hazy orange shade. Small white head. Notes of green apple, oranges, banana. Grassy and herbal notes always poking through. Creamy mouthfeel. Pretty good. Has a ring of Belgian authenticity but with just about enough of its own character.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On keg at Magic Rock Tap Rainbow Project 2015. Well made, but really just reminds me of a light/dry nondescript Belgian blond - seriously it tastes a lot like Palm. Nice frothy white head. Inviting, but mild. Light, lagery, dry. Hamster cage. Smells like a Belgian blond i.e. Brugge Zot, but flavour is much drier and almost lager-like. Pretty solid, though.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 Very smooth, tasty, well-put-together Belgian. Solid consistency. Nice yeast, estery, slightly floral. Easy to drink, but also very present. So good that I enjoyed two at the brewery, and several friends who drank it had high praise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly metallic aftertaste. Very smooth though, and a wonderful sourdough mouthfeel. Not as strong as a lot of Belgian style beers, but a good pair for many meals. Great golden shine.
