Hazy medium orange amber. Large fluffy, creamy white head. Wheaty aroma with a little spicy grain. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Flavor is also wheaty with more spicy grain/rye than aroma, some citrus. Finishes a light rye spice, light to moderate earthy/grassy bitterness Come together really nicely.. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful, beautiful pour. Hazy amber with a huge , fluffy white head and lots of dancing bubbles. Taste is (obviously) heavy on the grains with a long finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber orange with a big and dense ivory head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet honey and bread crust, clove and grain. Taste is malt driven with bread crust and grain but also has some marmalade sweetness. Some clove character and floral hop flavor along with an earthiness and nice rye spiciness in the finish. Finishes semi dry and spicy. Mouthfeel is creamy with amedium body and carbonation. The grains, hops and yeast all add lavors that blend well. Drinkable and would try again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden haze poured into the tulip glass, large white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of toast, some tropical fruit, maybe some banana from the yeast, flavor is similar with the addition of rye spice that in the beginning is a welcome addition, but by the end is cloying and gets in the way. Finish is largely typical Belgian ale with its sugars that could be better balanced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy, bubbly orange-copper with a huge fluffy off-white head. Some lacing. Slightly mild aroma of yeast and herbs along with light grassy hops, some spices, rye malt and grain. Flavour is also yeasty, herbal and spicy along with rye malt, grassy hops, a bit of fruit, grain and an average semi-lasting bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 12 oz bottle, almost overflowed the 24 oz glass with the resulting head. Slowly settles in a lumpy fashion. Leaves chunks of lace on the glass. Amber color with a solid haze.
Belgian ale smells of yeast and soured malt.
Sour flavor but with plenty of spice notes in the background. Lightly hopped to give it a more malty feel. Not as dry as most rye beers. Moderate body but with a very high carbonation level. The aftertaste has elements of milk and a bit of sour-bitterness.
