Purchased as part of a mixed 6pk. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a high head that is gone pretty fast.

S- A bit sour.

A- Not so good. Rather tart. This is like a blend that as spun off another blend. Not very good though.

M- Dry but still not great

O- Not so good. It's a beer that was created to have another offering or something.

Food Pairing

This OK beer went ok with..... Monte Cristo sandwiches

Enjoy!!

Poured a deep and murky brown with a thin tan head that dissipated quite quickly. The smell is mild but with some light dark fruit and some spices. The taste is a little more robust and with a nice light sweetness on the finish. There is a little bit of carbonation on the finish but the body has a nice weight and feel to it.

On tap at the Yard House in Denver. Great beer - what you expect from a Belgian but very smooth and nice to drink.
