Sampler pour on tap at the brewery (Mundelein, IL). Pours a richer straw pale hue, light and decent haze, straw yellow glow, almost champagnesque. A frothy loose white head dies to a ring, laces small. Aromas are touches of apple, fruity malts, gentle earty hops. Some pear, gentle florals, spicy dry yeast. Gentle dryness, touch of honeycrisp. Initial is lighter end of the fold in body, a touch of fuzzy carbonation, a bit prickly with some apple, gentle honey, pear. Mellow sweetness up front, bready sweeter malts,c ereal grains give some life. Gentle spice, yeast, and dry earthy hops, kiss of citrus. Middle shows a touch of tartness, Belgian yeast influence shows a touch of stink, lemon, some crab apple, gentle spice grows. A touch peppery, yeasty. Into the backend, some dryness, bready and cereal, straw and grass. Mellow hops show some life. Gentle tartness, mellow hops, spice. Meh. It’s ok, a bit sweet up front for me, fairly quaffable en masse, with a bit too much spice and apple tartness for me. Ok.

I found it better than the Three Floyd’s version. Very much a mild belgian ale, plenty of saaz. Wasn’tcomplex and subtle though, just subtle.
