3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 ounce bottle in pint glass. Copper reddish with nice head and a little lace. Toffee yeasty aroma. Toffee flavor with very mild melon fruitiness and a brainy bready finish. Medium-light body and medium carbo. Pretty good for a session amber. This is what Fat Tire copies.

On tap. Clear light amber color with a super short white head. The aroma had a touch of yeast, sweet caramel malts and some light citrus. The flavor was sweet caramel malt a light touch of yeast and some citrus. Light bodied, went down easy and was actually a decent pairing with my ribs.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this on tab in The Grill Roissy village, it pours clear copper color with a thin white head. Taste very light and smooth, with a little bitter sweet after taste and some vegetable notes. Very light carbonation. I find this to be a very light amber beer, and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear brown, reddish, colour with a small size head and loads of carbonation.
Smell is rather wheaty and seems to be rather vague to me, not the typical belgian ale.
Taste isn’t very much to my liking, yeasty bready flavour to it.

Tap. Totally strange for a Belgian ... sweet bready ale. Seemed a belgian-yeasted american dark ale.

Shared this with oldrtybastrd as many others have also been drank. This poured yellow and had a spicey aroma and some sweet tastes before the grain.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Valley Farm Market. Very light amber color. Has almost a pinkish hue. Aroma is grainy with some breadiness. Flavor is malty with more bread. Fairly bland and watery. Pretty poor excuse for a Belgian.

on tap- Poured a mostly clear amber hue with a white head that had minimal retention. Aroma was a mix of fruity notes and some sweet bread notes. Flavor seemed to be light and well balanced between fruity notes and bread notes. Carbonation was minimal and the palate was mild. easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 750ml, in a Trappist glass. Pours deep, very appealing, amber, with initially frothy white head, and residual lacing. Quite fruity on the nose, but unfulfilling on the palate, and weak mouthfeel. Initial promise of bursting flavour on the tongue quickly gives way to an insipidness overall.
