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.
