Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts moldy-malty, more and more sourish. Soapy-dry background. Unbalanced finish, not very drinkable. Didnt like this.

This is a pretty good Belgian ale. Nice citrus, pepper, and cloves. A bit dry. Paul gave me this one at the UC bar.

On draught at Bhavani in Brugge.

Pours a hazy light orange color with a medium head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little boozy but has a nice orange rind and spiciness.

The flavor is fruit forward and has a subtle spiciness. Some banana and orangepeel. The beer is a bit boozy when cold but this settles down as it warms.

The high carbonation serves the beer well.

Metalchopz (3314) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Originally rated March 2006. Bought at the Dpanneur de la Rive in Cap-Rouge, Quebec. Written DEC 2006 on plain golden bottle cap. Pours a cloudy blonde-caramel colour with a white foamy head and good retention. Kind of looks like a witbier. Lots of carbonation and lacing is sloppy all around the glass. The nose reminds me of a pilsner. After breathing a bit, the aromas turn to spices and yeast. Fizzy mouthfeel. The flavours are also yeasty with some decent dry hoppy finish. Quite a refreshing brew and a nice mix between a witbier and a pilsner.
