3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The pour is a hazy light golden color with a very sturdy, creamy white head on top.
S: The nose is sweet and bready with a slight spiciness to it--seems to be peppery. The hops are earthy and work well with the nose.
T: The flavors are what you’d expect from the nose. The malt dominates and is bready and slightly sweet. Like a lot of Belgians, the yeast provide a lot of flavor to the beer and in this case, a subtle fruitiness. The hops are once again earthy and provide a bit of bitterness.
M: The body is on the lighter side with a full carbonation and a crisp feel on the tongue.
D: Not a mind blowing beer, but a nice little Belgian. Unfortunately, a little pricey, so I don’t know if I’d bother with this one again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
26 ratings, and only one from North America. It appears as though Smokeless Joe's is the only place on this rock where you can buy this beer. Another continent-wide exclusive! Put that in your map room and smoke it. The glass is frosted so I can't see the beer all that well - looks light tan, with a moderate head. Slightly bready aroma with notes of pear brandy, apples, white pepper. Comes over crisp - a combination of firm malts and understated prickles of carbonation. Lightish character holds the beer back - slight alcohol dryness, with sweet malts cutting in late. Cross between a Duvel-style and a saison...good but seems incomplete.
