Surprisingly, this looks and smells classically 'Belgian,' rather than American. Clear, kinda viscous golden body and a massive cloud of white, lacy foam with aromas of orange, canned pineapple juice, underripe banana, and sourdough bread. Vaguely floral as well.

Taste is balanced and pleasant but not particularly interesting, and also weirdly flat and lacking spark. Apple cider and clove flavors dominate, with a hint of earthiness, which combine with very soft carbonation, very low hop bitterness, and a surprisingly heavy mouthfeel to give the impression of still cider. I suppose it's all meant to showcase the peculiar characteristics of the yeast (or yeasts), but it comes off as something like Duvel or Saison DuPont without the zip. Possible food pairings: cornbread, sausage, roast pork or lamb, hard but mellow cheeses, rabbit with mustard sauce.
