look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
11.2 oz bottle poured into a pint
Bottled on 4/20/11 consumed 7/30/11
A- Pours a rich brown amber, with a fleeting loose 1 finger head. Lots of fizzing. Dissapointingly there were significant floaters and also a moderate chill haze developed.
S- Smells of sweet malts, and a fruity sweet hop note as well. As it warms a slight spicy note comes out of the sweetness.
T- Very subtle while also very complex. 11.2 oz isn't enough to discover all that this has to offer. There are obvious sweet notes backed by a subtle stab of bitterness from hops, that then turns into a waterfall of candy, fruit and sour notes. Wet finish.
M- Much more carbonation than I expected. Feels very loose on the tongue, and the carbonation works well, its not over done. Very clean feeling.
O- I wish this didn't have the appearance problems, or this would have scored higher. I will try it again to see if maybe I got a bum batch.

Amber beer with a thin lip of foam. Looks good in its own glassware.
Musty Belgique maltiness, brown apple flesh, sprite acidity, and darker grains. Not bad.
Amber twist to a Belgian Pale. Follows the nose with apple and pear, but picks up some drier bitterness and herbaceous hops toward the finish. Tasty and simple. Mouthfeel is carb-light, but still good. Great swish. Drinkable as hell.

3.5/5 rDev -2.8%

Served in a De Koninck chalice at Beelow's.
This tap has been here too long without me partaking of its contents. Time to rectify that. It pours a hazy rusted tawny topped by a half-finger of faded khaki foam. The nose comprises rye bread, light ruby red grapefruit zest, Belgian yeast, a hint of clove, and a few drops of maple syrup. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some mild grass and flowers for the sake of it. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda drying finish. Overall, a nice little BPA, nothing to write home about, but if you're here and need a bit of Belgian-ness, it's here for you.
