illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2010
GABF 2009 Backlog. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of funky Belgian esters. Light bodied with fine carbonation...perfect. Flavor of pale belgian malts, but dry and spicy. Not much residual sugars left on this one. Finishes slightly woody. I really liked this beer, but I did not take good notes and I will admit I was getting a good buzz at this point
