Pours into my snifter a slightly hazy and rich golden color with a two finger head at first but does not retain as well. Settles down to small lace around the glass.

The aroma has some green apple, hints of white grapes, and that distinctive Belgium yeast.

The flavor is clean yet full of fruit hints. Green apple, white grape, a touch of citrus, sweet malt and alcohol. The yeast gives a bread flavor that balances a little.

Light/medium bodied as this ale should. Plenty of carbonation and easy to drink.

This ale may not have the gigantic head of Duvel, but it is 5 dollars less and is locally brewed for me. Give it a try!

3.65/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

$9.95 for a six-pack of cans at a local gas station.

A: Decent size head, fades neither slowly nor quickly. Very light lacing. Body is a very attractive, light amber color.

S: That standard sweetness that comes with the style, Smell definitely does not stand out, leaves no significant impression.

T: None of the flavour is overpowering, which is both a positive and negative trait. Nothing stands out in the taste to make it stand out from other beers in the style, but it manages to not have any specific flavours too strong so as to offend any drinker with a specific spice dislike. Leaves no significant aftertaste. The abv. (8.0%) isn't particularly noticeable.

M: Pretty standard in regards to the style, not particularly light, but lacks the residual sticky-sweetness found with some belgians. Goes down quite easily, definitely sessionable.

O: Overall, this is a beer I'd love to have as one of the staple ales in a bar, it won't offend many, while also neither significantly impressing many, and encourages sessioning. This is a good go-to belgian ale that I always notice when I see it on display. Would reccomend to anyone interested in trying a local brew of belgian influence.

This beer is sweet with strong flavor, in a word a really good Belgian. Its dark red color is appealing. It has a nice almost thick mouth feel. It has some Banana tones to it like a Heffewizen which surprised me. It was on of my favorites at the NC Brewgaloo event.

Serving type: on-tap
