No canning date.

Clear, amber body. A brown tinged head forms, filling the glass. It settles to a firm, protective cover.

Weird smelling at first, like boiled cabbage. That thanfully goes away and started to smell better. Spent grain, fruity yeast, citrus hops and some caramel. The boiled veggies don't completely go away however.

Very griany and dry, with some more caramel malts. That pesky boiled veggie essence is back, and it really kills the hops, and the beer really.

Too much boiled vegetables. No sir, I don't like it.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

16oz can poured into tulip

Appearance is golden orange with a very fluffy, white head and extremely sticky lacing.

Nose is filled with sharply fresh hops, vanilla bean, pine, and oak.

Taste is bland for a Belgian. The sharp hops fall flat on taste. There is an interesting sour component, but there is little to compliment or contrast with it. You are left with mostly sourness, with some vanilla and a bit of hops. But it is way too light.

Mouthfeel has a carbonation similar to seltzer, and does not have enough body to support a Belgian.

Overall, I have been to Vivant and know they are better than this. Try a different style of theirs.

Body is a vibrant rustic golden color with a large amount of billowing carbonation.
The nose is pears and fruity yeast notes with a bit of earthy hops and citrus american hops.
bright and floral with more sweetness then bitterness all around. A light amount of citrus hops give a the only bitterness found, but the soft fruits of the belgian yeast overwhelm them.
low carbination, slightly creamy, and medium bodied.

Poured from a tallboy can into a pint glass. Huge head with lots of lacing. Tough to get a decent pour out of a can. Just another reason to love bottles. Color is a coppery amber. Smells a fruity cooper aroma. Tastes as it smells, no surprises, bland grapefruit and mild copper taste. Mouth feel is thin and not memorable. I love IPA's and DIPA's and this is not one of the better offerings of the style. So many better craft beers out there. Pass on this one. And pass me a Two Heart!!
