2.93/5  rDev -10.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

33cl bottle. Pours hazy pale gold with a small whispy head that disappears pretty quickly. Strong coriander/pepper smell. Slightly citric. Not much going on aside from the spice. Light, sweet, malty taste with the same spiciness. Lemony. Flat finish. Medium body with good carbonation. Not really offensive, just not good.

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.
