On tap at Craftsman Table and Tap - Pours amber with a thin white head. Nose is pretty dry and yeasty, with some light tropical fruit notes and a touch of coriander. Taste is pretty much the same--dry, pale malt, dusty yeast, a bit of oak, and grassy hops, coriander, and light fruitiness. Not astringent, which is nice, and not overly spicy. Pretty jacked up carbonation fluffs up the thinnish body, but it distracts a bit from the beer. Pretty solid.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger fizzy/creamy off-white head. Aroma (through all that head) is lightly spicy. Might be from rye. Full bodied. Foamy carbonation. The flavor is very Belgian. Definitely earthy with rye. Dry, almost astringent. Hop is decent - but whether it’s rye bitter or hop bitter? Very, very tasty.
