3.61/5 rDev -8.4%
On draft at Duckworth's, Charlotte, NC, 8.5 oz pour for $3.
Golden pils colored pour with a tight little head and oil-slick lacing. Nicely bittered by the hops, good bit of citrus in the nose and mouth. Loads of fresh lemon and bitter fruit-flesh, a little grassy in the finish. The mouthfeel is quite nice, bravo on the viscosity. Solid brew.

on tap at Duckworths (NC)
Pour is golden, lightly hazy, with a moderate size off-white head that is exceptionally durable and leaves fine lacing.
Clear Belgian yeasty note in both tasting and the aroma. After a minute of adjustment to the initially unpleasant but limited Brett.
M: very smooth with ample soft carbonation.
O: American version of this Belgian style that exaggerates the Belgian features. I found this slightly challenging.

Poured from the bottle into a wine taster glass.
A real nice solid yellow lemon orb glowing body, with clear carbonation rising. A creamy bright white head shows up, but settles and falls at a normal pace. A light bubbled collar remains while drinking.
Sweet smelling Belgian like candy. Slight dry spice. Light malts and airy. Solid. Not so much peppery. Hints of thick butter but not movie popcorn diacetyl angles.
However, palate brings the pepper nicely. Mild pepper in the mid palate, mixing with a Belgian classic sweetness. Crisp finish, with a large malt tripel like density. A nice prickly sensation after each sip on the tongue, with good carbonation. Green like peppers come out a bit more as it warms up.
Overall, a nice simple take on a good Belgian big ale. Very enjoyable.

Pours a pale yellow color with a very small hint of orange, white bubbly head that quickly dissipates, no lacing on the glass.
Smell has a sweet malt backing with a musty funk upfront with the musty being stronger than the funk, slightest hint of grassy hops, I'm looking for a peppery aroma and I looked hard, a couple times I think I found it but I'm not really sure so I'm not expecting a strong peppercorn presence.
Taste is sweet at first, the sharp carbonation lends a sweeping dryness that helps keep the sweet malt in check, some light fruit aspects dance around along with a citrus note, the peppery flavor does come into play in the aftertaste but I've had other beers with a larger pepper presence so I'm a bit disappointed (yet relieved at the same time as peppercorn can sometimes be too overwhelming).
More subtle than I thought this year's Fluxus would be but it's well-rounded.
