3.95/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Cloudy golden yellow with a foamy white head. Not much lacing left on the glass.

S: Bready malts with a strong fruitiness to it. Not a hint of hops.

T: Definitely not unpleasant, but not particularly great. Sugary orange spice and wheat. A slight sour bite on contact with the tongue. It's pleasant, but not all that interesting.

M: I don't know if the other reviewers are drinking the same beer I am, because there's quite a bit of carbonation here, but it's still really smooth. Not bad at all.

D: This is this beer's redeeming feature. It's a very pleasant beer that I would probably down a couple of if they weren't almost $4 a pop around here.

3.41/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.
