In my Colorado years this was one of my top few favorites. A dependable strong brew with a tangy taste. I never thought of this as yeasty, and it's a more refined style. Golden and clear in the tall Maredsous glass with a thin head but nice champagne bubbles. Plenty carbonated in the mouth.

It seems kind of sweet on first sip. The spices are a little overly strong. A malt candy flavor. The best feature is how smooth and drinkable this is. It's the ideal late evening sipping glassful. Seamless is the word that comes to mind, even with the alcohol taste.

From the 12 oz bottle bought at-- who cares, you can buy this everywhere. They do a good job of distributing. But I've never seen this on tap, which would be worth watching for. New Belgium makes this the cleanest, most approachable beer in the golden Belgian style.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a chalice.

A: Golden hue. Pours a half finger, bubbly, white head. Quickly dissipates, leaving a smattering of bubbles on the surface and a thick beer ring around the rim. Small amounts of effervescence can be seen rising throughout. Thick beer ring lacing.

S: Sourdough bread, (the namesake) coriander is prominent, with hints of oregano, and a little honey.

T: Tastes like it smells. Pungent sourdough, with some hints of savory spice, topped with a slight indistinct sweetness.

M: Light yet syrupy. Spicy finish.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really strong. Nice effervescence, and a decent head with plenty of lacing on the back end. Nose is pungent and bready, with hints of savory spice. Tastes like it smells... light, pungent and bready, with plenty of spice and a slight sweet balance. Overall, this is a really good quaff.
