3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Churchkey, DC tap ($7.50): Pours a golden body with a white head. Aroma is a little weak for a Belgian. Aroma has some spice (coriander) and some fruit, but not an overwhelming amount of it like some Belgian ales do. Taste was not that complex. Probably hoppier than your average Belgian ale and the presence of the spice probably accentuated the hoppiness. I did however notice that in reading the reviews, that people have very different opinions on what is going on in the taste of this beer. Basically, I will agree with many people and say that it is an easy drinking albeit somewhat boring version of the style.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy light orage colour. Thin foam layer but there are nice lace production. Aroma contain coriander and orange. Palate is carbony and almoust middle full. Taste is very compared with aroma. Coriander and orange. Aftertaste have little bitter but maybe more coriander. I think there is also some sourness also. Not bad, but not so special too. But I can drink that some times. =)

Wierd smell. I could really only call is salami. Maybe I’m crazy, but its all I could smell. Tried to smell something else and couldn’t. Tastes good though and looks just fine as the rating reflects.
