2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. 750ml. Pours murky, light copper color with a whitish hue. Big white head that leaves heavy lacing. Aroma smells like corn or rice with some yeast and coriander-like notes. Thick viscosity but a somewhat watery taste. Spicy with some slight fruit flavors. Somewhat medicinal. Dry, bitter finish that seems out of balance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
9/19/07 From the bottle. Aroma is fruity malt forward, then biscuity, woody, with light phenols and caramel, with no hop notes. Appearance is Gold, clear, with a medium off-white head. Flavor is grainy, munich maltiness forward with a solid medium bittering balance. There is a strong hard water note that extends into the finish and no hop character, and this remains a very clean flavor. Mouthfeel is grainy, metallic, medium bodied, with medium/high carb feel and light warmth. Overall, this is very good with a nice complexity.

Purchased at Sunset Beer Co, 10 bucks so it doesn’t break the bank. P: Almost gushed on me, almost. Poured a dull yellow/orange hued with a champagne two finger head. S: A ton of things going on here, both bad and good. Has some typical Belgium farmhouse smells, (oak and wheat) but with light perfume and vinegar, light smoke, sharp cheddar, malt and olives. T: Olives and oranges, alot of honey, sweat malt, grains, wheat and has a bit of a mineral pilsner finish. Some nice peach flavors pop-up as it warms and the smell also gets fruitier as it warms. M: Highly carb, light with a bit of crisp. O: An odd beer and Imagine that explains some of the harsh ratings. However, I found to be enjoyable. IMO, if your not into weird beers (Fantome etc.) you may not be a big fan of this but I enjoyed it.
