Golden color. Very simple beer, with some sweetish body and caramel, but boring…

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Beer Geek. Copper amber color with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus and a little spice. Near medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather malty sweet, with some citrus and likely coriander. Seems to be a lot of caramel, and a lot of citrus/coriander to temper it. Despite that it still seems not very bitter. It’s just the wrong type of sweet for a Belgian in my view, and a little more hop might have been an improvement. It’s slowly growing on me though.

Draft sampler at MBC. Poured a deep reddish amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Good malty and citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate balanced malt light hop citrus flavor with an average spicy finish. Another very interesting brew.

12oz bottle. ugh this is making me sick. huge foamy head that looks like its a nitro head. clear dark amber color underneath. smells very creamy, with some almond and milk flavor... but fairly light, nothing too big or up front to notice. like a cream ale, almost. the nose turns into something nasty, though, like an old moldy ashtray... bad tobacco, its gross.
