DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Bottle from Brandon. Pours a clear amber color, not much settling head. Stale malty nose with faint whispers of yeast esters. Flavors are dull, caramalized malty-like, somewhat sweet but not overly so...clean but remarkably uninspiring...not much of a hop presence at all...a rather boring malt-forward whathaveyou...not overtly belgian tasting either for something styled within the confines of "belgian ale"...oh well, a new country rate, Iĺm thinking.
