Poured from a 12oz bottle into a plastic cup in my hotel room at ambient/room temperature.

Aroma apple, pear, coriander, orange, sage. Not supremely aromatic and has a bit of a fermented fruit character.

Taste same as smell. Light but not devoid of character, subtle. Good sugar balance on finish (not too sweet) orange character is unique, tart fresh and darker profile than I'm used to. Lingering pear flavor.

I am partial to this style and enjoy the not overly fruit forward/sugary character I often find in witbier, with an undercurrent of herb and spice.

750ml bottle corked and caged poured into a Duvel chalice.

AP: Pale yellow straw colour with a 3/4" fluffy white head that fizzles down to 1/8". Minimal lacing on sides of glass, good head retention.
AR: Like sourdough bread, a bit of lemon and coriander spice, funky yeast, toasted cereal grains, a bit of tart apple and pear.
T: Very bready flavour, sourdough bread and fresh baked baguette loaf. Mild spices of coriander and pepper, but rather faint. The fruit I detected in the nose is also more subdued and more of a background to the breadiness. Yeasty finish and aftertaste.
M: Fairly crisp on the tongue, mild carbonation, off dry finish.
OV: This is definitely a food beer meant to accent certain dishes and styles of food. Can also be drunk on a hot humid Summer day or night and would be quaffable and somewhat refreshing. Just by itself if you're looking to challenge your palate, not so much. Certainly not a bad beer, but rather mild and tame and easy to drink.
