3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is hazy light golden yellow with a short lived white fizzy head. Aroma of toasted Belgian malt sweetness and spice with a touch of lemongrass. Medium mouthfeel. The first sip surprised me with a sort of vegetable oil sensation but it passed as I drank it. After that I got the standard Belgian toast, malts, yeast, and spice I would expect from the style. I liked it but there was nothing that set this apart from others in its class except maybe its higher price tag.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from the source.
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a bone white tightly bubbled head that leaves a moderate amount of stickies on the way down. Peppery grassy earthy bready with a nice floral spicy hop kick to the aroma. Light sulfur is not hugely off putting but is there enough to mention. The flavor is light and bready with hints of earth and citrus. Spicy hop flavors play well with the light peppery yeasty esters. Light to medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Incredibly quaffable light flavorful Belgian ale.

Taster at the source. Pours pale yellow gold with a lingering white head. Aromas of grass, wet hay, pepper. Taste is light and wheaty, with yeast and a bit of pepper and grassy bitter in the finish.
