4/5 rDev +8.7%
Poured on-tap in Groningen into a Brugse Zot 0.33 L glass.
A: Pours a clear, pale straw with 1-2 inch white head with decent retention and excellent lacing. (4.25)
S: Very fresh banana, clove, and mild citrus hops. (4)
T: Follows aroma, but not as strong. (3.75)
M: Light body. Soft and lightly sweet. Mildly bitter finish. (4)
D: A nice fresh, straight-forward session brew. (4)

3.69/5 rDev +0.3%
Poured a hazy dark yellow, head was a little disappointing, at 1/4 inch, with little to no lacing
Aroma was pretty basic, nothing really behind some malt, not a great characteristic.
I liked the taste, malty with a very refreshing taste and feel, less brett than Orval, more normal yeast flavor.
Mouthfeel was crisp and refreshing, more akin to a lager than what I would expect a belgian ale to be like, carbonation is light,
Overall a very pedestrian Belgian ale, which is probably what the brewery intended. I think this is a very blue collar beer in Belgium, but it's imported price tag leaves Americans looking for more. I would get it again, but I would also try others first.
There are a lot of American attempts at Belgian ales to keep you happy.
