Poured from a growler I picked up from the brewery/tasting room yesterday to a Duvel chalice.
Fairly mirky amber/caramel color with a 2cm bubbly white head. Low retention and no lacing.

Belgian candy sugar, banana and caramel malt on the nose.

Light flavor. Not alot of depth. Slight sweetness up front similar to the banana flavors in a Hef. Also orange peel and maybe bitter mango. Transitions quickly to a slight sour finish. Flavor is pleasant and fairly balanced.

Light bodied and crisp mouth feel with good carbonation.

Overall it's good but nothing special. Could be a beer for someone trying to transition into liking sours. The right time to drink this beer is now in this hot CA summer.

Serving type: growler

On-tap at Venice Ale House, Venice, CA

A: The beer is clear golden yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of Belgian yeast are present in the nose along with notes of pale malts and hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is very much like the smell and has flavors of pale malts with strong notes of yeast, hints of sweetness and bits of alcohol.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a good beer to sip. It isn't as dry as some of the other beers in the style and hides its alcohol rather well.

Serving type: on-tap
