COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Bruery and Maine Beer Company got together and cooked up something special for you: fourthmeal. It isn’t brunch; it isn’t "linner." It’s a hoppy Belgian-style ale that brings aspects of both breweries to the table: fruity, Belgian yeast esters, a crisp, bready backbone, citrus and piney hop characteristics, and a dry, hop-forward finish. There’s no one shouting "come n’ git it" when it’s time to dine - just mouth-watering, dry-hopped aromatics, signaling that it’s time for fourthmeal.

750 ml bottle shared with Tmoney99 and the Dutch’s crew. Pours a hazy orange amber color color with an initially medium sized but quickly diminishing off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice hop profile, fruity, floral, Belgian yeast, citrus, lighter bready malts, some herbal notes, dry, good easy drinking beer.

mansquito (6488) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 22, 2017
Bottleshare: pours orange with a white head. Aroma is yeasty, light pine and hints of citrus. Beer is probably old and doesn’t have the hoppiness that you would expect. Not great at the stage. Probably should be better.

750 mL bottle from Beer Run, 8/8/16. Hazy orange, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of citrus, toasted bready malt. The taste is orange, grapefruit, yeast, lime, toasted white bread. Medium bodied, juicy, soft carbonation.

tmoreau (4413) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters displaying a hazed gold color, with fluffy, soft white head foam, and web-like lacing. The aroma was herbal, citrusy, and tea-like, somewhat reminiscent of a hommelbier nose. The taste was similar notes, medium bodied, with decent carbonation, rind-like bitterness, and dry finish. Worked for me.

RRistow12 (895) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy orange with thick rocky white head. Aroma is lemon, citrus, grassy, herbal. Taste is light to medium bodied. Taste similar to aroma with lots of citrus and Belgian yeast notes. Awesome summer beer. Nice well balanced hop flavor makes this a very well done tasty brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
