A great, sessionable Belgian ale. A bit tart, like pear and granny Smith apple, with a very dry, spicy finish. This is a great warm day beer.

Brewery describes this as a Belgian Single. Appearance is nice in the 0.4 litre glass with the golden color and modest suds. Light beery aroma. Light bodied with a watery but refreshing quality.

This has a long, deep, toasty malt flavor that is quite appealing. The Belgian yeastiness is not overly powerful, and adds a pleasant bitter tang and some interesting murky malt. There is some slight sweetness and hints of chestnut, with some cedar woodiness and a fruity tang. Very modest bitterness. They list this at 29 IBUs.

Overall this is a highly drinkable brew that seems simple at first sip but grows in complexity. They should put this in cans to throw in the backpack. On tap at Blind Lady Ale House in San Diego.
