Served in a cervoise at Tap House - Des Plaines.

Well, if it's there, why not get another LoF beer? This one pours a partly-hazy amber-brass topped by a finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises light greens, mild sweet malts, sweet flowers, and a melange of herbaceous scents that I just can't quite parse. The taste generally brings in more of the same, basically coming across as a vague take on a Belgian pale ale or Belgian IPA or even a weak saison with a heavy emphasis on flowers, herbs, and a mild sweetness. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this was a decent brew, nothing really negative to say about it, per se, but it's nothing close to special, nothing I'm gonna remember for very long. Meh, I guess I'm trying to say.

22 ounce bottle, says Best Enjoyed by May 2014. Guess this was in my fridge longer than I thought. Served in a DFH Signature glass, the beer pours a hazy dark golden/orange color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. It smells like peaches, herbs/earthiness, white grapes/wine, citrus, and some bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of clove and grassiness. It's fruity, tart and bitter. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit coating and has a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a good brew, I liked it.
