355 mL bottle. Orange, with a small but sticky head. The beer is pretty much as described above, only not as good. Not that it’s bad. And I don’t know if the Belgian malts help. Nice bitterness level, though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: clear bronze color, hues of orange as well, medium off white head that retains well, laces nicely
Aroma: hops, grass, piney, malty sweetness, subtle
Taste: malt, citrus, has a sweet start and then hoppy bitterness on the finish,
Palate: medium body, soft carbonation, bitter aftertaste
Overall: I like this beer because it blends the sweet and bitter flavors well, it's balanced, could use some more complexity if anything

Given to me for free when my po boy arrived very late. Tastes grassy bitter, of light lemons, earth, caramel, malt, and must. Dry on palate. Ok

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On draft at Inwood Local. To me it seemed like a pretty standard APA, and a bit like a lager too, despite its claims to uniqueness. The hop profile is dry and not particularly exciting. Pas mauvais.

On tap at Avenue Pub. Pours a clear orange-brown with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet light fruits, bready malt. Flavor of sweet fruit, toffee, sweet malt. Simple but very palatable and good.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was musty and dirty. The crisp and clean mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear gold, lightly effervescent with a thick, creamy white head. It’s an attractive beer. Some dusty, pale malts in the aroma, hints of pine. Light to medium sweet flavor with sugary malts, some caramel, mellow grassy and herbal bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Balanced finish, some light pine resins, bready malts that are a bit drier than before, some further grass and herbs. Pretty clean aftertaste, with just a hint of metallic twang. It’s a decent beer overall. Easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slight hazy golden brown on tap with pillowy white head and good lacing. Aroma starts with hints of sweet caramel, goes biscuity, then ends kind of grassy. Taste is mostly the malt, bready but slightly bitter. Easy to drink and definitely a session beer.
