16 oz. tumbler pour at Monk's Cafe, Philly.

A- Hazy, dark gold. Head is lumpy and white. With good retention.

S- Belgian yeast springs right out in front. Nice fruity ester, of stone fruits. Malt aroma is biscuity. Hop notes aren't so noticeable.

T- Biscuit malt. Belgian spiciness. Hop character is a dull citrus pith, with a bit of earthy notes.

M- Medium light body. Carbonation is nice and delicate. Dryness in the finish, a combination of the hops and spicy Belgian character.

O- Really pleasant. I enjoy the nice hop characteristic in this. Good balance of the spice and hop.

Pours shiny orange with a two finger white head that recedes slowly to a thick sticky lace.
Sweet oranges, apricot, apple and pear, some cherry plum, wheat, faint honey, spices, soft floral hints. Really inviting.
Fruity, but musty, with some yellow apple, some grapes, some pear and faint apricot. Not that sweet, but crisp with lemon zest. Spicy Belgian yeasts, with some pepper, faint herbs, mostly some coriander, some flower petals. Earthy and wheaty, with a nice dried hay note. Hop bitterness, mild, but bolder than in usual Belgian ales.
Light bodied, almost a bit watery, medium prickly carbonation. Aftertaste is yeasty, some hay, some faint hops, with a funky note that isn't that great tho.
A decent Belgian-style ale that has ups and downs, resulting in a nice refreshing beer, light, easy to drink, but not that interesting.

Tap at tavern in the square Northborough

Light creamy head, super murky hazy orange blond tan color. 35

Nose nice Belgian aromas, esters, orange, little rind, wheat like malts, creamy wheat, mild pepper phenols, mild grassy notes.4

Taste more wit, plenty of creamy wheat, light though, plenty of spices and peppery phenols, mild esters, hint banana, more citrus and orange, little rind. Then bitter spicy hops, very bitter almost astringent, long spicy hops, little tartness in the middle too. Finish dry bitter spicy hops, little citrus and creamy wheat lingering.4

Mouth is med bod, fairly creamy, lots of carb.4
