On tap at Taco Mac. Very excited for Belgian style brewery here in Atlanta. However, this one misses the mark for me. Realizing this is a start-up, I’m going to continue to try their beers. Drink local!!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear gold with a fizzy one-finger white head. Looks quite carbonated. Aroma is musty yeast, bread, faint malty sweetness. Flavor is a little on the bland side. Start off crisp and slightly spicy, fading into a mild sweetness. This would probably be a good compliment to a meal but on it’s own, it’s a little on the boring side.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is full of light citrus esters and sugary adjuncts. Light pear and apricot. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with minimal head. Taste is similar. Slightly sweet with moderate bitterness and some fruity esters coming through in the flavor. No alcohol presence but just a touch sweet for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Slightly hazy pour with light white head. Aroma is cereal , slight lemony note, and a touch of sawdust.
Taste is definitely belgian style, light malt and lingering bitterness, some notes of citrus pith.
Overall a decent light belgian session beer but not mind blowing by any stretch.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one is surprisingly good. Gold with very slight chill haze, high carbonation, but not a lot of head. Crisp and refreshing, a bit reminiscent of what you’d imagine as some mashup of Belgian ale and a Czech Pilsner. The only thing approaching a flaw is that the lingering bitterness seems a little odd. Maybe a little sulfur in the finish? I like this brewery so far, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Single Intent from a fresh growler filled near the brewery.
A light-bodied, crisp blonde ale with a rather good head that leaves sparse lacing.
Aroma: complex: yeasty, spicy, herbal and hoppy aroma.
Flavor: at least as complex as the aroma, but with more banana and fruit, and more bready malts. There’s a lot going on here, and the flavor changes quite a bit from start to finish. Good balance keeps any one component from dominating.
O: At least partially succeeds in resembling a product of Belgium’s Trappist breweries, a fully succeeds as a light but aromatic and flavorful Belgian blonde. Refreshing, interesting and recommended.
