In a word: complex. In greater detail: brown ale, but not brown ale; ancho-ie and roasted. Try it and judge for yourself.

Pours very dark brown.

This beer tastes like a Flemish ale. Which I am a-okay with! However, juxtaposed against the last beer I just tried of theirs that was supposed to be a witbier and tasted like a Berliner Weisse, I'd say something is amiss here. I get minimal chile tones that give a mild touch of smoked heat on the backend. Mild fruity aspects.

An interesting beer. But probably only because it happens, by chance, to taste like a Flemish ale.

The cool, damp night was a welcome relief. The scorching sun had roasted everything within reach. The buzzards that flew overhead all afternoon had nested with their bellies empty. If it was a tavern, it was long abandoned. The barkeep had a dressing wrapped around his head at least three times, covering one eye and creating enough padding to keep his Stetson firmly in place. With his one eye and one nod, he welcomed the company. Two towns west he used to be a farmhand; one town west he was a road merchant; here, he sat in the dark. It was warmer inside but dryer than the night air because the doors and window shutters were always closed. When asked if it was to keep others out or keep him in, he grew angry and thundered incomprehensibly. Rather than face isolation, he deliberately calmed and feigned interest sparged with dry humor. Every wrinkle on his filthy visage was an evaporating river threatening to finally reveal the countless skeletons of every drowning. He was perhaps gregarious as an expectation, but never a preference. It’s as if we place ourselves amidst anguish and tease a fury ready to manifest as an assault on what is expected of us rather than what we want. Facing the shelves of empty bottles, he rubbed the back of his neck hoping to wipe away perspiration but only shook off flaking skin he had been shedding for years. Proprietors and squatters know the tales but money only tells one story. The buzzards tell the rest.
