look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A: A medium amber with an orange hue and great clarity. The persistent head pour a finger of off-white creamy foam with some big bubbles.
S: The aroma is pretty malty with a a bit of earthy and spicy hops aroma; having a medium-strong malt aroma with a notes of biscuit and caramel. The hops aroma is moderately-low and the esters are low and very Belgiany more British ale like fermentation character.
T: Malty and fruity having a medium-strong malt character with flavors of caramel, biscuit and toast. The is a medium amount of light colored fruit like Nectarines and oranges. There is a medium amount of spice what seems like a medium-low portion coming from the hops and a bit more from the yeast. The hops also add and earthy flavor. The alcohol brings bi additional sweetness
M: Soft and creamy with a medium-full body and a moderately-strong level carbonation.
O: A malt driven beer with some spice; it's like a British Ale rubbed elbows a Belgian brewer. It's an unexpected and little brewed Belgian style. If you approach this beer expecting a typical Belgian you might not be too impressed unless you get it not tap where it is truly sublime.

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.
