This brewery is not quite in the belgian style. They do great ones but are too soft in tastes. It was refreshing and nice in the whole as other style.

Bottle, 10 days past its "serve by" date. Poured a pale hazy color with a white head. Very light on the tongue, and very tasty. Great alternative to a pilsner on a hot day.

Pale golden with medium fluffy head. Aroma of hay, flowers, honey. Taste is sweet and flowery, light but snappy. Finish is short with some lingering light hoppiness.

12oz bottle...had to try this as it is brewed with soursop and monkfruit and I was not disappointed. Bright golden with a thin white head the sweet/sour flavor of the tropical fruits along with a crisp and rather dry tart finish made for a very drinkable and complex beer. Well done.

Bottle from Kroger. Very light pour with a small white head. Aroma is hay and maybe some sourness. Taste is kinda citrus, light bitterness, and that’s about it.

As the end of summer nears, I thought it would be a good idea to flush the queue as much as possible of all of my summer seasonal beers. For some reason I’ve been putting off alot of summer ales this year. This one, well, doesn’t have very good curb appeal. The label... no comment. The description... not making things any better to say the least. Still, I’m going to suffer through this. And now I learn that it’s a Belgian ale. Great.
This beer is a super light yellow in color with a wickedly frothy bright white head. I still don’t want to drink this. It smells like fermented compost. There are some grains, rotting fruit, and a hint of Belgian yeast in the nose. It’s better in the mouth, much like a pilsener malt-forward session ale, but with some soured bitterness in the finish. I do have to admit that the addition of soursop and monk fruit are a nice addition and probably make this more enjoyable than if it was a straight-up pilsener malt-heavy Belgian ale, but that doesn’t change my overall experience of the beer right now. The fruit seems to give it somewhat of a smooth mouth feel and weighs down the mouth a little. It also gives it a sweetness reminiscent of a sparkling white wine. Neat, light, interesting, and, I admit, better than I expected.

$1.68 bottle from Trader Joe’s, Charlottesville. Pours clear light gold with 2" of fluffy white head. Smells of sweet grass, pepper, lemon, and light orange. Tastes of light grasses and even lighter fruits. Not great but it’s refreshing.

Pours a light hazy yellow. Aromas of soap lemon and yeast. Similar bitter soapy and lemon rind flavours. Nice.
