2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite generic, like a macro lager, with corn / bready malts and not much else. Flavour is quite rusty and metallic, with copper and metallic notes. Nothing Belgian about this. Very off-flavoured and metallic. Not good at all.

On tap at the Brave Horse Tavern. Pours a light copper, a little hazy and with little to no head. Fruity esthers dominate the aroma with distinctive notes of apple and pear coming to the forefront. Tastes is slightly sweet in the beginning and finishes very dry and somewhat tart. There’s a richer malty biscuit and cracker like flavor that pushes through this beer.
