Glows iridescent, deep copper (SRM 14-16) with a 2 ½ inch, white mousse that settles to form a ½ inch blanket and leaves no lacing.
The fruity funkiness which emanates from the bottle gives way to orange peel citrus and light floral notes in the St. Hermes tulip.
Well balanced with fruit and spice which are distinct from subtle apricot. A short, subtle finish accentuates earthiness that is light – similar to white wine – and develops with warming.
Medium body with lively, fine carbonation, light alcohol, and a dry, woolly texture.
This is a great beer to help settle down with after a day in the hot sun. This is by no means a lawnmower beer, however, as it has much more to offer. A contemplative nature would also allow it to accompany afternoons of conversation.

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.
