This beer pours a yellow color, with a white head. The aroma is amazing, it has a lot going on. Hints of clove, hints of banana, a little band aid, bubble gum. There is a lot going on in the aroma, it makes it a very fun beer. The taste is very complex as well. It is sweet, bready, bubblegum, slight banana flavor. It is a very complex delicious taste! The mouthfeel is light, and at the same time the flavors and aroma that come out of this beer are so complex. This is a very good beer!

3.59/5 rDev -10.3%

Pint can poured into taster. 4-6oz.
Appearance: Golden ale, decent amount of head. Can't complain about how it looks in the glass.
Smell: This was the highlight of the beer for me. Tantalizing Belgian aromas, some malt underneath, what you'd expect.
Taste: Spotted Cow on steroids. A farmhouse ale for folks who haven't jumped full-on into the Belgian beer camp.
Mouthfeel: Average, not going to do anything crazy to your palate. Where Spotted Cow shines with a touch of corn, Cynic goes for a more straight-forward mid-level ale feel.
Overall: Alrgiht. Probably wouldn't spend $10+ on a 4-pack, but would like to try this on tap sometime. A decent lawn-mowing beer, a bit more Belgian than I was expecting.
