Smooth. A little sweeter than I like, but it’s a very good example of the style.

Transfer from BA review from 11-30-12-
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance –The beer is served an reddish amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, with it eventually fading to leave a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of yeast, fruit and spice. A light funky yeast aroma is mix with smells of banana, apple and orange. These are all complemented by some spice aromas of a peppery and spicy.
Taste – The taste begins with a light sour apple flavor upfront. This is mixed with some other fruit flavors of pear and orange as well as some bready tastes. A yeasty taste brings with it a bit more of the sour funk flavor. Grassy and citrus hop flavors enter the taste profile at this time helping to subdue some of the tart flavors. At the end very light peppery taste mixed with some notes of a wheat bread taste come to the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter and thinner side with a carbonation level that is high. The thinner body and the higher carbonation are great for the taste flavors of the brew and allow it to still be very drinkable and favorable without being “tart” overwhelming.
Overall – Ah it was an alight brew and worth a try, but nothing to really go to on great occasion.

I should preface all of this by saying that Belgian ales are not my style. Spicy notes in the aroma, medium mouth feel a lingering toasty finish.

Delicious fruity ale without the usual over sweetness you’d expect from similar beers. Very nice aroma and smooth finish.
