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.

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.
