Takes two pours from the bartender to settle the extensive head. The liquid is cloudy lime-yellow color. Good ring lace. Cloudy as expected.

Pale malt aroma with little Belgian yeast nose. It smells like creamed corn.

Strong corn flavor up front...I'm reminded of buttered popcorn. It's not bad, just surprising. The hop bitterness jumps in to relieve this, but "Belgian" does not come to mind for the flavor except for the ever so slight yeast presence. Good body with an elevated carbonation.

In the end, I like this beer--it tastes good and is unusual.

On tap at Prohibition Pig, into a tulip.

Poured an orangey gold, with a whispy white head that retained quite nicely. Nose has some toasty wheat, light spicing, musky/funky yeast notes and some gentle fruitiness. Palate follows, lovely funk and fruit notes, sweeter and drying. Feels like this would be a nice table beer.

Served in a pint glass at the Mad Taco.

Appearance - Clear golden yellow. Huge white head. Beautiful lacing and surface foam.

Smell - Lemony bright yeasty aroma. Some hops. A little yeasty.

Taste - Hop flavor up front. Citrusy. A little soapy. Touch of sweetness. Estery and a bit of grain.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light. Well carbonated. Grainy body as the flavor drops off.

Overall - This isn't the most flavorful beer, but it's tasty and clean.

A-Pours a mostly clear, golden orange color. Head is frothy and well sized. It leaves lots of lace.

S-Saison spices, pale fruits along with lemons. Chalky yeast. Impressive aroma for a Table Beer; it's got plenty of power.

T-Belgian spice isn't overpowering but it does dominate the flavor. Some lemon, pear, apple. A bit of grass. A bit funky here and there.

M-Light, crisp and mostly refreshing but the yeast flavors did catch up to me after a few sips.

O-A light bodied Belgian aimed at sessionability. It doesn't sacrifice much flavor in order to be so light, too. Really enjoyed the design but the overall flavor profile wasn't my favorite.
