473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Part of the Nickel Brook summer taster's pack. Advertised as 5.6% ABV, which leads me to believe there may be some tinkering with the recipe.

Appearance - Rich golden colored topped by half of a mountain of frothy head. Great retention and good streaky lacing left behind. Cloudy but still opaque enough to see some bubbles within the glass. Very appealing in appearance .

Smell - Some candi sugar, yeastiness and a light citrus aroma rolled over some doughy grain. Nose isn't pungent, but fairly full.

Taste- Same flavors as was picked up in those, starts sweet with candi sugar and yeasty then turns bitter with a leafy hop flavor and a hint of citrus, a whack of grain flavor in the middle before transitioning back to the bitter hop flavor. Some candi sugar comes back out at the end as the beer warms. a damn tasty Belgian style ale.

Mouthfeel - Smooth, well carbonated and a bone dry finish.

Overall - A very well crafted Belgian style ale, that i wouldn't hesitate to pick up again provided is was available in individual cans and for a reasonable price. Two winners from the taster's pack, has me looking more and more for Nickel Brook products. (1,203 characters)
