Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.
We couldn't find any info on the brewery's website for this one, and the back label was taken up by some poetic stuff. Everything else points to a Belgian Pale Ale, of sorts.
Pours a hazy, peach-colored beer with dark amber hues, topped with a big fluffy head that settles, laces and sticks. Soft, powdery aroma of malt and hints of spice. Smooth at first, but a bit gritty. Lively and light on the palate, with a fizzy carbonation that builds up to be semi-creamy. Crisp, with a green apple bite and watery notes of lemon up front. Peppery here and there, blending with some bitterness. Bread and crust flavors, plus faint notes of honey and toasty caramel beneath a dry cracker-like finish. Metallic at times--like sucking on a coin. Some lingering spice in a powdery, drying finish.
Refreshing, goes down easy and has a uniquely subtle finish to this very broad and, all too often, samey beer style. We could ourselves imagine sitting at an outside café, drinking this one with a plate of cheese and rustic bread.
