Golden color. Very simple beer, with some sweetish body and caramel, but boring…

12 oz. bottle from Beer Geek. Copper amber color with a decent off-white head. Aroma of citrus and a little spice. Near medium body with rather creamy carbonation. Flavor is rather malty sweet, with some citrus and likely coriander. Seems to be a lot of caramel, and a lot of citrus/coriander to temper it. Despite that it still seems not very bitter. It’s just the wrong type of sweet for a Belgian in my view, and a little more hop might have been an improvement. It’s slowly growing on me though.

Draft sampler at MBC. Poured a deep reddish amber with a small white head that diminished quickly. Good malty and citrus aroma. Medium body. Moderate balanced malt light hop citrus flavor with an average spicy finish. Another very interesting brew.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy off white head that leaves decent spotty lacing. The aroma is a bready malt with caramel. Thin mouthfeel with a light roast malt with caramel, raisin and brown sugar. Easy to drink with a spicy finish. A good Belgian from MBC.

"a bit on the generic side, and although i expected it to malt-heavy a little too sweet and too much of a one trick pont for my taste. not bad, but not good either."
