Purchased from provisions for $8

App- The color of a late sunset with a bit of caramel brown mixed in. Starts out lighter on top and darker on the bottom. A nice two finger eggshell head. Had some bubbles vs. cling in the glass.

Smell- I am going out on a limb and saying this is like a dubbel/quad/kvass minus the boozy notes. A small yeast note with some bready malts.

Taste- A bit of a flat cola flavor with a ton of earthy bready malts. A little like rye to me. Its unusually like a KVASS just amped up. Very light and very mild.

Mouth- A lighter medium body with a medium carbonation. A bit of a Rye Kvass like finish.

Drink- A good collaboration. I can tell this will be a polarizing beer. You either love it or hate it. I liked it. It was a nice layered little beer.

Pours a very hazy reddish-brown color with a medium yellow-white head that disappears quickly. Scent is very tame...with some Belgian yeast...along with some German yeast/malt that could easily be mistaken for. A bit of banana and spice. Taste is malty and sweet at first, with some pleasant fig and plum flavor. Quite spicy with a lingering peppery feel on the back of the tongue. Very well balanced and just plain out easy-drinking of a beer. Kinda reminds me of a very light Belgian dubbel. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated. Drinkability is fairly high. Overall, I understand what they were going for with this beer...and they definitely achieved their goal. It just isn't my style when I'm wanting to enjoy a Belgian-style beer, let alone a session beer. I have a feeling there are going to be many more people who love this beer than dislike it.

On-tap at The Bruery,

A: Pours a reddish brown/umber with a moderate white head, good lace.

S: Nice nose, has some true Belgian character, hint of banana bread, fig, yeast.

T: Biscuity malt with some solid yeast play, cracked grain. Light notes of allspice and pepper.

M: Light-bodied, crisp, but a tad over-carbonated, makes it hard to really taste the flavours which are good.

O: Nice little beer, the complexities in the malt/yeast play I liked, but nothing wowing here.
