look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from bottle into a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed golden color with a small white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell-The aroma is a biggest of a yeasty smell with lots of banana, coriander, clove and a little bit of lemon. Mixed with these more standard Belgian smells are some rather sweet candy and bubblegum aromas, giving it a rather sweet smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a malty and sweet taste with flavors of yeast present right from the start. The bready flavors create a base of the beer with the sweet initially being of a more sugary candy nature mixed with a decent amount of a tangerine sweetness. As the flavors advance, more yeast and flavors associated with yeast of clove, banana, and coriander come to the tongue. These flavors combined with a big sugary taste as well as a light alcohol at the end to leave a sweet and yeasty flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to creamier with a carbonation level that was on the average side as well. Both are rather nice for the style and produce a nice balance between drinkability as well as allowing all the flavors of the brew to be sensed by the tongue.
Overall – A niceBelgian that has a taste profile in between that of a Belgian session and a triple. Quite tasty.

12 ounce can. On the bottom "Drink Me! 3/19/2014" Best before date? Canned on date? Dont the brewers think this might be kinda confusing and ultimately of no use to the customer??
Pours orange hued and hazed. Out of the can its all fizzy and loud bubbles. Larger head quickly goes to next to nothing. No film, no collar and very minor lace left on the glass. Something about a beer that makes a noticeable sound as the bubbles pop is off putting to me
The nose is of sugary fruit and a hint of yeast.
In the mouth this one is quite thick and viscous. Notes of of sweet fruit and wheat malts.
Too thick, carbonation to low, sweet with some lime and pepper...but complexity and interest here on the low end of the scale...I believe this is my first DC Brau, and I'm not overly impressed..
