3.5/5  rDev -6.7%

Appears a slightly clouded golden hue, with a very bright color shade. Bright white head forms thick with fine bubbles, head retention is excellent with fine speckled lacing left on the sides of the chalice.

Aroma has spicy yeast notes, slightly peppery with a clean biscuit malt character.

Flavor has a spicy upfront yeast character, rough phenolic character slightly fruity a hint of band aids…it’s all there.

Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with even flowing carbonation not much else happening here. The dry finish just works for the style adding to how easy this is to consume.

Overall, an easy drinking sessionable Belgian style beer in a can the off band aid plastic fermented flavors don’t sit well with me but they aren’t overbearing in this beer.

This can looks pretty cool. Murky, dark golden color. Head forms well. Leaves ribbons of lace. I enjoyed the aroma because, while the phenolic Belgian yeast elements were present, they were nowhere near overpowering. Lightly spicy, yeasty and clovey upon each sniff. The flavor also wasn't too overbearing in its Belgian yeast character. Light clove and pepper. Some grain and cracker with a lighter. Soft bitterness. Buzzy carbonation. I did not mind my portion of this can.

From a can.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a tall pint glass, color is opaque straw, head is white, nice smallish bubbles, good fine carbonation; head lingers very well with some lacing.

Smell malt forward, mostly light pilsner and biscuit; yeast off notes and some subtle hoppiness release as the glass pulls away.

Taste is great, clean and simple malt flavors, that are not sweet as the dry finish and yeast flavors takeover. Malt notes are biscuit and pils; yeast byproducts are some phenol and bananas and clove.

Mouthfeel is also very good: crisp carbonation and dry finish that is not too hard on the tongue.

Overall, a great farmhouse or simpler saison - not over complicated, and exceptionally easy drinking. My vote for beer of the summer season.
