0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Soft and clean copper golden pour with an off white head. Rusty/light iron notes in the nose with some tossed grain, smell like a dunkwlweisse to me. That burnt popcorn note... same goes for flavor. Belgian yeast got a little weird. Some light fruity notes. Medium light body and a soft finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. Light nose, some light fruity malt and soft belgian yeast character. A touch of light caramel sweetness. Light and airy flavor with some floral perfumy hops over the lightly malty base. I like the spicy hoppy mix. Mouthfeel is light and airy with nice fizzy lively carbonation. Lingering floral hops. Very nice, went well with my fish and chips.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at La Cave du Vin
Spending a relaxing Sunday evening at La Cave this was my first pint. The price might have been a little steep but it wasn’t a bad beer. Depending on the price it would make a great sessionable Belgian ale. At the very least I could drink two or three as it has enough flavor to be interesting but not enough to wear down the palate.
Aroma / Appearance - The golden rosy body was hard to see in the dim light but still had a certain light airiness. Yeast with a meld of fresh hay, white bread hot from the oven, and low key hops filled the air with a mellow experience.
Flavor / Palate - Honeydew melon, straw, yeast (like that you would use in sourdough), and a light tartness give this a nice punch. Without being aggressive it has more presence than your typical fizzy lager in a can. The dry finish tastes a bit like brett might have been added but it is hard to tell. Too many of these would certainly wear you down but two or three would make for a nice evening.
