2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from local tap a reputable place here in Richmond, VA where Hardywood is brewed.
Nose is basic - little hops, little grass.
Appearance is actually nice - golden with a white puffy head - pours clear.
Taste - not so much. A little bitter without the character necessary to justify it. Watery and light - way too light. No heaps of yeast, no snap of hops - just a light beer flavor where a real beer flavor belongs. Can taste a little of the brewing station or something akin to metal. I’m not a fan. The finish was bad enough for me not to finish the beer. I almost never don’t finish a beer I am served.
Great mouthfeel, light refreshing. A medium amount of spices. Decent triple.

6.2%ABV. Belgian ale.
Poured out yellow gold. 6SRM.
Nose has steamed corn, and a hint of that stone dust, dry wood aroma that is characteristic of Belgian ale. It’s what my brain and my palate dissect the yeasty aroma into. Hint of ripe fruit aroma.
Mouthfeel is beery. Palate has strong malty flavor, more so than most Belgian ales. There is fresh barley loaves, white bread, biscuits. Front of the palate is woody, dry, alcoholic and bitter. Back end has more of the same.
Finish is tannin-like bitter and a bit of spiciness suggestive of cilantro or the skin of a mild chili or pepper. Brief. Clean.
Good food pairing would be spicy dishes with more body like Laksa or Tom Ga or curry.
Overall a very nice, well-balanced and bold interpretation of a Belgian ale. Good. strap (915) - Sindelfingen, GERMANY - APR 9, 2017

Bottle. Slightly hazy straw, nice fruity aroma. Flavorful, fruit and light spice. I also get a bit of Edam cheese or something like that. Finish lingers. Maybe not as light and dry as the style dictates, which is OK. It still goes down easy. Better than so many American Belgian singles. Ktwse (4887) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of citrus, funk, mild wheat. Taste is mild sweet, lightly funky fruity. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.
