3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Bruery. Pours with a lightly hazed golden body with a white head. First impression from the nose is vegital, but that fades. Beyond it coriander, peppery, and other spicy phenols, dry malt notes, light esters (notably pear). Flavors are spicy, medium bitter, phenol, black pepper and some dry fruity esters. Grainy, dry, medium bubbles. Quaffable.
I enjoyed it more and more as it warmed (full glass). Really a solid little Belgian ale.

Draft at the brewery. Bright clear gold, with frothy white head. Biscuity bready malts, citrus, and light spice notes. Pretty nice and refreshing, surprisingly good.

A - Served a very cloudy golden-yellow color with a finger of white frothy head. The head faded fairly quickly leaving behind little lace.
S - Aroma was a mix of grains, yeast, and citrus. There was also a bit of spices (coriander) in the background.
T - Starts off with some mild citrus, lemon, and light grain. Through the middle, just a touch of hops and some yeast flavors come through. The finish is a blend of yeast, light spices,a nd some lemon.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation. Felt smooth and just a touch watery.
D - Very drinkable. Nice mix of Belgian elements, and very sessionable. Could have used just a bit more punch in the body and flavor through.

Part of flight at Orange County tasting room. (Great deal: $8 for 5 pours, and keep the glass! Their full-size, branded stemware.) Bit of sour fruit or cider in the nose. Actually very cidery. Light drinking beer, balanced palate. Bit of tartness in the finish. Super dry. Excellent.

On tap @ The Bruery.
Hazy golden brew with a small white head. Aromas of citrus, barnyard, and bready malts - flavor is very light and refreshing. Quite straightforward by Bruery standards - some slight funk and fruitiness with a spicy bite.

A: The beer pours a hazed golden straw color with a small white head.
S: some citrus hops up front with a rather strong floral and perfume note. Some yeast notes to it with a bit of melon and fruit. Lots of spice and a bit of bready malts and cracker.
T: The flavor is quite light overall. Somewhat floral in nature with a light citrus quality and a little bit of perfume and floral notes. Light lemon flavors and very little bitterness. Some light yeast and a bit of spice.
M: Quite light in body with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Although it was advertised as light, I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so light. But, it was good and easy to drink.
