Poured from bottle. Faint aroma of wet malt and citrus. Decent lookin gold amber with a bit of head. Tasting roasted malt, citrus hops, coriander, pepper, maybe a trace of melon. A pleasant surprise as I was expecting something much lighter.

Bottle from jcwattsrugger, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a hazy deep golden color with a decent sized but quickly fading bubbly white head, Sweet bready malt aroma mixed with a fair amount of light fruit and hints of spice. The flavor is sweet bready malt with a bit more yeasty flavors than the aroma suggested. Light citric tartness and fruit round us out nicely. Medium body with a moderate to high level of carbonation. A bit fuller in body than I normally associate with a summer brew, but honestly Iíd rather drink this!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold to copper body with a one finger fizzy white head. The nose is pale malt, some light perfumy hops, Belgian yeast, and a slight sweetness. The flavor is pretty light and delicate with some light bitterness, and a touch of alcohol. Thereís a little Belgian character and residual sweetness on the finish. Lighter bodied with fizzy lively carbonation and some light alcohol. Not the most interesting and complex Belgian ale, but itís pretty interesting.

Draft at Blackstone, while watching the amazing World Cup action! There is nothing special here, but its an all right lager - it didnít seem too Belgian to me. Light malty sweetness & mild hopping. A slice of lemon improves it a bit.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy body but a nice amber to brown hue. The head is short and quickly settles into a thin light tan coating with a uniform creamy ring with some big bubbles through it.
Aroma: The aroma is mildly sweet from the malts with hints of licorice and clove and a subtle dried fig aroma. The aroma is mild and somewhat pleasant.
Taste: Very bland flavor, hints of malt sweetness and a bit of flavors of spice and fruit from the yeast, but not much. The back-end picks up hints of licorice, dried fig and clove, but itís very mild. Hints of brown sugar are noted.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: The spices they coaxed out of the yeast Iím not very fond of, licorice notably. This is rather bland as well. I guess they were going for a session dubbel but this came out lacking too much.
