Great nose. Pepper and yeast. Grapes too? Bright clear amber in the glass with a big bubbly head and lace. Light and fuzzy in the mouth. Not a full mouth ale. Nose is better than flavor to me. Bitter and flat on the palate. Carbonation fluffs up in the mouth.

Bottle (750ml corked). thanks to MagicDave for this one. Bottle likely a little past its best. Cloudy gold with an average fizzy white head. Aroma of slightly spoiled fruit and classic dry Belgian Wit spiciness - a little stale. Tasted the same - sweet, dryly spicy, fruity but a little sour. Average body, solid carbonation, quite yeasty/spicy in the linger - ehhhhh. Even fresh, I doubt it was awesome.

Like a Belgian Ale should be. Draught at City Beer Store. Lots of flavor - banana in there - and excellent aroma. Well done.

On tap at City Beer in SF. Good stuff - it’s sort of a cross between a Belgian ale and a California common. Aroma is sweet malt, spice, and Belgian yeast. Flavor is caramel malt, yeast, citrus notes, and mild hops. Smooth, medium palate.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery hue with a fading head and minimal lace. The aroma is very much not want I was expecting, spicy, fruity and yeasty. Wanted a hoppy and acidic APA/IPA beer but instead got a Belgium Ale. The taste is actually pretty nice with the spicy character working with a biscuity malt background and a hint of twang towards the chalky and flowery finish. The mouth feel works well with the flavor, slightly aggressive and refreshing. After a less than stellar first impression this beer came back to show me something good... just dont expect a west coast hoppy ale.
