Don't want to write a full review. Clumsy and average.

Another canned extra courtesy of htomsirveaux, poured into a Duvel tulip. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a very clear, hay-colored gold. Absolutely fantastic clarity, with a small white head that left beautiful cascading lacing around my glass. Very nicely put together.

Nice pilsner malt in the aroma, with a bready note and a touch of sweetness. But there's also a slight vegetal quality that seems almost rotten. A little bit like cabbage stew, this smells quite off. A non-BA with whom I shared this beer pejoratively described the smell as "funky."

Thankfully, whatever off notes that come through in the nose don't impact the beer at all. Lots of pilsner malt and a touch of biscuit. Corn and wheat, with a robust bready character. There's also a slight fruity aftertaste that adds additional sweetness.

Carbonation is on the low side, but it's not terrible. Definitely an easy pils to put back.

I'm quite happy that the taste departed from the smell significantly. This isn't a style I often spring for, and I haven't found many American versions that I enjoy, but this is solid.
