I consumed this lovely beer at La Bécasse in Brussels. This was my first beer of the afternoon. It was hot (95°F and slightly humid) and I was in need of refreshment.
Appearance: It is brought to the table in a blue earthen jar with small scotch-like glasses accompanying the jug. The beer pours from the jug a nice, foggy, orange to tan color with an off white head on top. The head is made up of uneven bubbles. I have to give them credit for serving it in the communal jug. I like that.
Smell: Very fruity and earthy on the nose. Some light wheat/bread scent comes through along with a sugary citrus scent.
Taste: Slightly sour up front but hte sourness yields to a good amount of sweetness and more citrus and fruit flavors. There's a hint of apple and some pear along with a bit of spicy pepperiness. Most of the flavors fade but the aftertaste is more heavily sour citrus and malty wheat. Don't get me wrong, there is lingering sweetness, but the sourness holds on stronger. It's a nice balancing act on my palate.
Mouthfeel: This beer is about medium bodied and a tad thicker than the Doux that is also served at La Becasse. Clean, smooth, and not the least bit offensive.
Drinkability: This is an excellent beer. The flavor is more complex than the Doux so it leaves you with something more to chew on. The aftertaste is a bit strong but still very very pleasant. I'll be heading back for more of this beer next time I am in Brussels.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle pour at the bottle share held at Chloe's inside Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.
Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, spice, yeast, and slight funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour and tart lemon PEZ and earthy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a sourness that comes through in the flavor only.
