Golden-orange color (dare I say muted poppy) with a fluffy off-white head; it’s effervescent and clear. Aroma is tangy, citrus fruity and sweet. Tastes sweet upfront, with prominent esters, a perfumy/floral note. Not sure which part of the tangy flavor/dry finish structure to contribute to the poppy seeds verses the belgian yeast (plus alcohol, hops, malt choices, minerals etc) but it works for me. Falls between Between the three or four offerings that I’ve tried from Uncommon Brewers, this one seems to work the best overall, AND is closest to what would be expected from the beer style designated.

To be a belgian ale, it is missing the foam. Clear amber body, flat vanishing white head. Malty and floreal aroma. Some soap, I would say. Taste is soapy, malty sweet. Malty and alxoholic finish. Medium body, flat carbonation, soft texture

Singularity (6369) - Blattniksele, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at O’Connors. Hazy golden with white head. Aroma fresh, tart, lemon, fruit, mango and slight peach. Taste is tart, lemon, fresh mango and similar fruit, creamy mouthfeel with a perfectly matching tartness. Extremely drinkable. I don’t know if this is a lacto infection but the beer is simply smashing.
