Poured from a growler that was acquired by a good friend a couple of days before sampling. Slightly phenolic aromas mixed in with soft malt aromas, light carbonation kicked up a whisper of foam when poured. Super light color reminiscent of a massed produced german lager. Up front clove and cinnamon flavors dominated which were overtaken by biscuity malt flavor on the backend and cleaned out by hop dryness. Didn't get any belgian aspects to the alcohol flavors except phenolics - no fruity esters or spicy alcohol which makes me wonder if a belgian yeast strain was used at all. Not very drinkable to me due to the phenolic character dominating the flavor profile.

Pours a clear, pale golden color. Two fingers worth of a white head. The head falls quickly to a ring, and island that leaves a few spots of lacing.

Smells like a wet, mange riddled mutt. Coriander overpowers, and dominates its aroma.

I taste banana, coriander, clove, bubblegum, and some fruity notes.

Dry, medium body with little carbonation.

When I took my first sniff I thought I'd be drain-pouring this one. However it's flavor, and mouthfeel were pretty decent.

Served in a pint glass cool at NYC Beer Company.

Clear "gold" light beer with an eggshell white head.

Smells very much like mown grass and a light clove finish.

Strong Belgian yeast front. Clove and a light fruit end.

Light and low carbonation.

Seems run of the mill for this style. Other better beers.
