Pint in Alfie's on 9th Ave, New York on 18 Jan 2013: chalk board called it a 'Belgian style Amber' with 'Rare Vos' as an afterthought in brackets.

Belgian style Amber it is though, very drinkable in deed.

Slight cloud within the pour: light amber to dull gold in colour with a thinning white head on top.

The aroma was a mixed bag of smells, yeast, corriander and malts in that order.

The taste followed the smells too: add some grain feel into the blend, this was an easy drinking semi-sweet brew that I took too greatly: couldn't have another though, too many others to try!
