A rustic earthy woody character is derived from the special Belgian yeast used in this medium bodied copper colored ale. Saaz and East Kent Golding hops add the strong spicy citrus notes that lead into the refreshing dry finish. Wallonia, in Belgium, is the home of this unique beer and Adolphe Sax, inventor of the saxophone.

Growler. Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), with a note of burnt sugar and gum. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very dull and uninteresting.

Copper color, clear with not much head. Aroma is quite funky but also very sweet. Taste is overly sweet. Mild earthy, citrus. Floral hopping with a touch of bitterness.
