A: Very nice amber with a moderate head. Slightly cloudy.
S: I catch a more mellow belgian character with very faint banana. They were brewing a batch in the background and it is overpowering the glass.
T: Belgian mild is a perfect desrciption. Biscuit flavor with malty finish. Not much to this.
M: Higher carbonation, especially for a Bruery beer. Light body and crisp. Very crisp and nice for summer.
O: Not one of my favorite Bruery beers. Very mellow Belgian. A nice beer for newbies or friends who aren't into craft beers.

Copper and dark rust in color with a fairly large light brown head that billows up quickly, stays for a while, and eventually settles down to a moderately sized film atop the beer. This leaves spots of lace down the glass. Appropriate and pretty for the style.
The aroma is a pleasurable enough combination of bread and yeast, with a touch of dark fruit. Pleasant, though very simple.
The flavor too is quite nice, especially for the style. The yeast, bread, and hint of dark fruits make for an incredibly drinkable combination.
Medium to full body with moderate-high carbonation--marvelously drinkable.
I really enjoy this, especially for the style.

Nice red and brown color, some ruby edges to it, soft off white head, only about 3/8" in depth.
Aroma was a nutty maltiness, almost like a red ale, but then it had a very faint Belgian aroma, super mild banana to it, dang, why can't hefe producers makes them something a little more restrained yeastwise like this is.
Very mild flavor profile. Its there. It still shares some characteristics flavorwise comparable to a red ale. But a belgian red with belgian yeast. Cereal grains. No hops, but a weird bitter bite to it, unwelcome in a low abv mild beer like this. Very bready cereal type stuff going on, even if the thickness and viscosity still remains in session country.
A little dark fruit aspect in the mouthfeel. Some spice accoutrement that isn't welcome. Dark candy additions. Complex, yet mild, yet not mild enough. I don't see this beer being made again. I'd frankly prefer the Ovila Dubbel to this any day.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with a fluffy ivory head that never really fades, resulting in a 2-finger cap. Light aromas of brown sugar, dark fruit, caramel, and Belgian yeast. Kinda reminds me of a Dubbel. Taste is pretty similar to the nose, more toffee and caramel, dark fruit, and phenolic Belgian yeast. Not bad, and I get what they were going for, but really nothing special. Mouthfeel is light and drinkable, with a medium-thin body and good carbonation. Just an ok beer, nothing to get excited over.

Poured from the bottle into a Chimay goblet.
Appearance: The beer pours a slightly cloudy mahogany color with a half finger of off white head that goes away completely.
Smell: Malt forward and mild. Not particularly sweet. I'm getting mild hints of cherry and amoretto with a slight Belgian spice.
Taste: Not as interesting as the smell. Malt forward with some mild Belgian spice and a hint of bitterness in the finish. The fruity notes aren't here. Kind of boring but not bad.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.
Overall: This was an alright beer but not very interesting. I loved the name, it was perfect for the olympics.

Poured into a perfect pint. Big thanks to bigsippin for helping this get to me.
3.0 A: Murky light amber color. Two and a half fingers of foamy off-white head. Retention is pretty good, but just a tiny ring of lacing is left.
3.0 S: Dry graininess. Minerals. Toasty and bready malts. Pepper from the yeast and a touch of clove. Other than this spiciness, this smells a hell of a lot more like an English mild than any sort of Belgian brew.
2.0 T: While the nose could pass as an English mild, the taste can't really pass as anything. Bready and toasty with an overabundant yeastiness. Minerals again. The spiciness in the nose is hard to track down in the taste. Too much yeast taste without enough "beer taste."
3.0 M: Medium to heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Yeasty chewiness, perhaps too much actually.
2.5 D: Not a big fan of this. I go to the Bruery for big, sticky boozy beers, not 4.7% Belgians. Glad I only got one bottle of this.

Share with rudzud.
Erupts slightly and pours a nice fluffy but fizzy 2 finger head that fades semi slowly, lots of soapy lacing, super murky mahogany almost purplish red like color.
Nose is lots of Belgian aromas, lots of esters, light phenols that present a booze that's like 8-9% instead of less than 5%. Some biscuit, dark caramel syrupy like malts, but still seems light. Fruity esters mostly take over, hint of Belgian yeast spices too. Not bad so far.
Trade starts with a light bitter tart fruit, super over carbonated and a bit of infection like. Yeasty, light biscuit malt, light Belgian dark malts and candy syrup. Hint of Belgian yeast spices, faint esters and phenols, taste like it should be boozy but not really. The faint infection like taste really destroys the beer. Hint of dark fruits and nuts, but somehow feels really light overall. Finish is drier, a weird light hydrogen peroxide taste from the ridiculous carbonation and infection like funk, very light feel, light fruits and nuts, sticky syrup.
Mouth is lighter bodied, waaaay too much carb, and overall feels thin for what it should be.
Overall not great, nose is nice, but the taste really dies, slight infection, weird hydrogen peroxide, way too much carb, very thin, just bleh.

The beer pours a murky brown color with a small off-white head. Most of the aroma is bread and toasted malt. The Belgian yeast gives a little bit of a peppery character, but I was hoping for some banana to it. A rather simple, straight forward aroma. The flavor has a bit more sweetness to it than does the nose. Toffee to go along with the toasted bread. A hint of yeast and a mild spice on the finish.
