Looks like your average lager. Not very cloudy, which is what I’m used to for Belgian styles. Wheaty banana smell. Nice refreshing taste. Flavors of caramel, banana, bread. First beer from Epic. Not bad. Would for sure try some other styles from them.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Hazy Orange Hue, Passes Through No Light, Mild White Head, Good Lacing
S: Citrus, Mildly Spicey
T: Orange, Corriander, Belgian Sugar, White Pepper
M: Decent Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Sweet
Overall, the nose disappointed as it seemed neutral but the taste was really good. For a 8.3% ABV beer, it is not boozy at all. It can sneak up on you fast.
