3.96/5  rDev +6.7%

Appearance: Flat white wine. Disappointing.

Smell: Lots of wine grapes and yeast. Nice rustic Belgian qualities.

Taste/Mouthfeel: More wine and yeast. A heavy note of oak in the background. Quite sour, which I also really like. Very clean mouthfeel, but almost too clean. Thin for a Belgian.

Overall Drinkability: A good but not great Belgian.

2.85/5  rDev -23.2%

On-tap 2/26/2014 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a goblet glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains rice light malts, wheat, some spice and some alcohol.

T: The taste starts out with bready flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast and rice along with some spices. The malt character is thin and there isn’t much of a hops presence to balance out the high ABV. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Watery and a little smooth, light body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, does not go down easily, not too filling, strong kick, good hybrid of style but it’s not a good beer.

Tried this on tap at the GI Clybourn location. Served in a cervoise stemmed glass. Nice pale color, very little head. Sake influence is not at all overpowering and imparts a nice dryness to this beer. Overall light and well balanced, especially for a 10% brew.
