2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Pours a slightly hazy orangish copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is lightly hoppy with some doughy and slightly sweet caramel maltiness. The hoppiness isn’t all that clean or distinct, they’re muddied by the mixed message maltiness. The flavor of the hops aren’t all that clean and clear either, there’s a moderate bitterness, but still too much maltiness in here. I wish this were a bit lighter bodied and more attenuated than it is. Medium bodied and clingy with fizzy carbonation. Meh, can’t say I’d recommend picking up this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2/21/15. Sampled during RBWG 2015. What a ridiculous name for a brewery and even worse name for a beer when combined with said brewery name. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Light Belgian aspect on the aroma, phenolics leaning towards plastic, light citrus, doughy. Bitter flavor, phenolics again, the Belgian part coming through, citrus, doughy, light caramel. Not awful.
