A subtle but good Belgian-style ale. Beautiful cloudy, golden appearance. A citrusy, almost lemon, flavor.
On tap at Jet Blue terminal @ Reagan International Airport, Washington DC. Traveling back on forth on transition/move to Maryland. First sample from this brewery. Tried a handful of theirs since...this being the best, which doesn't say much. Has some strength and seemed smoother and better balanced than the others. Maybe the Belgian yeast works better with the higher malt ratios they seem to use. Seems to be sort of macro and distributed to a lot of places...but probably usually a better option to choose. 17Beer (449) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 11, 2017
Draft. Pours cloudy gold. Big white head quick dissipating. Smells of sours and barnyard. Big sour tastes with some apricot and vegetable flavors. Very destinct but I don't like it. lavaaaron (128) - - JUL 4, 2017
Like all D.C. Brau beers this comes in right at average. I have complete respect for them because until they arrived in NE D.C. There were no breweries and so they had to establish the local beer scene with a basic foundation of beers.

A pleasant taste. A mediocre aroma. An average appearance. I hate this 75 character minimum. I just want to rate the beer for my own records.

Can shared in London - thanks to Clon. Pours clear orange-gold with a creamy, white head. The nose holds some crispy wheat bread, some dried lemon, hay. Light sweet flavour with doughy wheat bread, low bitterness, more citrus peel. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Simple finish, some sweet pae bread, wheat, minimal hops.
