Best by Aug 2014 at 50 degrees into goblet
Aroma very faint spiceness but you gotta really snort it
Head average (3 cm), rocky/fizzy, off white, quickly diminishing to nothing
Lacing – none
Body orange, clear
Flavor – starts moderately sweet with coriander spice, very subdued; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl; ends sweet with slight alcohol burn.
Palate medium, watery, carbonation soft

A not very good attempt at a Belgium IPA, weak and watery. The only future I see for this beer is as a gateway beer, a bridge between SA and better Belgium beers.
