3.61/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Straw yellow with good, thick, white, cottony foam. No carbonation. Can't believe this is a Belgian pale ale. Definitely thought it was a pilsner.

Smell: Lots of refreshing "nothing," specifically neutral dry grass. Feels like an extremely dry Bud Light, so it is very smooth. Some lingering Dortmunder dryness in the finish.

Overall Drinkability: Can you convince me this is a good Belgian? Not a chance. Can you convince me it's a refreshing summer lager? Sure.

Serving type: on-tap

This beer was a collaboration between Pitchfork and Goose Island for the 2013 Pitchfork Music Festival held in Chicago this past weekend (just like Run the Jewels). It seemed like a pretty decent Belgian pale ale to me, although I may be underrating it, as it was served in a plastic cup (which detracts from the experience for me) and quickly grew warm due to the blazing sun and mid-90s heat. Would definitely try again.

Serving type: bottle
