Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit sweet and honeyed. Some light pepper and a fairly light pale malt character. Some soft spice and a touch of herbal character. A little bit of light pepper and some light fruit. A little bit of sweetness, but a touch of soft fruit. Some light spiciness and a touch of clove. Quite dry and crackery. It’s not going to blow any minds, but it’s well-made.

Nice balance of hops and malt but a little too sweet for my taste. And anything claiming Belgian influence needs complexity.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Amber colour. Quite fruity aroma, maybe a touch of tropical/pineapple. Some modest but decent tangy and slightly herbaceous hops in the flavour. Not a huge influence from the Belgian yeast. Pleasant, if middle of the road. Easy-drinking and easygoing.
