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.

It pours into a nice head and amber color. Medium carbonation. No significant aroma or flavor other than a tiny bit flowery. At room temp the carbonation is gone and smells like a pilsener Urquell. Tastes like an Urquell but not so dry. Drink it while is cold and forget about it.
