Notes/Commercial Description:
Directly following no known rules or styles, but yet in the tradition of big tasting Belgian beers. Made with a rare Flemish yeast and some English and German hops, it’s what free trade should be doing for us but isn’t. Like with most Belgian beers, having an appreciation for the best things in life helps when drinking this beer.

4.13/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Clear blonde colour, orange ring of white head, some lace as well. Smell is quite yeasty, rye and spice, some candy apple and bubble gum, pretty big hop bill and a bit floral at times. Taste is yeasty with a bit of bubble gum and lightly sweet, spice and rye complexity, medium bitterness, citrus and fruity aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, medium body, good feel. A very solid beer, nice and hoppy with strong Belgian influence behind it as well, worth revisiting for sure.

Serving type: on-tap

On-tap at Indie Ale House. Bar listed this at 6%. Not sure if there has been a recipe change or a recalculation.

Beer is amber with a small white head which fades quickly. Some lacing.

Belgian yeast in the nose, a bit of sugar, some light fruit. Some hoppy scents: grass, some slight pine, faint orange. Nice but not big or impressive.

Again, Belgian yeast in the taste, with candy sugar, apple and orange. A bit of a bubblegum flavour. Moderately bitter.

Medium bodied, moderate to high carbonation.

Overall, OK. Not bad, and I had no trouble finishing the glass, but I doubt I would revisit it.

On tap at the brewpub. Light golden colour with a white head, and lacey. Subtle spice aromas and yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Mostly a story of yeast taste, with rye in the back end. Some wheat, a decent rye oriented beer. OK drinkability. I would like more hop and less yeast.

A - Poured medium orange with a golden glow towards the edges of the glass. Small layer of white head.

S - Fresh grapefruit and pine along with a spicy rye aroma and lighter caramel notes.

T - Decent bitterness up front with grapefruit and pine flavours. The malt base adds a good spiciness and a decent amount of sweet caramel. Finish is bitter, spiy and dry.

M - Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

On tap at the brewpub.

Golden orange, with some spiderweb-like lacing. Minimal retention. Nose of farmhouse yeast right off the bat, with a good bit of rye cahracter. Some lemon and citrus zest, light tropical and some grainier malt notes. Taste has more citrus zest, rye, grains and farmhouse yeasty flavours with some spice as well. Medium body, good bitterness and moderate carbonation. A very nice beer, I'd order this several times over.
