Pretty sure this is the correct beer....
Bottle says 05/2013
A= Pours a nice amberish brown color with a thin finger of head that rises and falls fast into a thin layer on top of the glass. LIttle retention but there is some.
S= Has a typical Belgian yeast aroma. There is a little caramel malt in it and some yeasty spiciness.
T= The taste is nice and light on the Belgian yeast which I like but it still is present. A solid yeast profile with a little spice. There is a caramelly malt flavor as well that comes through providing a little sweetness.
M= A nice level of carbonation. Sometimes Belgian beers are too carbonated for me.
O= This is a solid brew. I was told that this is what New Belgium modeled Flat Tire after and while they didn't quite get all of the nuances in this beer I would say it was an admirable effort.

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.

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.
